This place is unique in Europe, a second one can be found in France. Here you can find out how bathing looked like in the Middle Ages, see items for bathing and washing from previous centuries (eg. graters, tubs, hundred years old bathtubs or tadpoles to beat underwear), to enter a wooden tub or feel the atmosphere of a bath from the nineteenth century.
With the old advertising signs and instructions, hanging on the walls you will learn how to hygene care looked like in the old days, and the youngest visitors to the museum - probably for the first time in their lives - will be able to see how old washing machine "Frania" looked like , see a toilet bowl dating back 100 years, washing on a grater (you can even try for yourself), or how to mangle.
There is also a large collection of soap bars (the oldest of them come even from before World War II).
You can also make a memorable colored soap by yourself.
