If you're planning on doing a bit of sightseeing in the city then there are a few places to put on your 'essential Poznan' list and several more that are set to impress, if you're flush for time.
The self-respecting tourist's day out should start at Stary Rynek, the Old Town Square, where you can see the Town Hall and a whole host of other cultural delights. Meanwhile you'll find museums in abundance and in varying themes. The Poznan National Museum houses some fine pieces spanning centuries including some impressive Polish style coffin portaits. Further afield you'll find Citadela, the city's largest park, which has outdoor displays of military equipment and further still the Cathedral whose twin towers stand proud above Ostrow Tumski, the spot where Poland adopted Catholic baptism.

The space is small and exhibition was modestly hung. Featuring students I found it hard to find a uniting theme with little direction or information to tie together the works. Basic information such as materials and medium was missing from all pieces which I found frustrating. On the flip side the man on the front desk was very friendly. In contradicting an earlier review, there is no cafe at the Arsenal and I couldn't find any books in English.
the picture is the old post office building , opposite the castle
Good for kids (large as well as small). Probbaly the most interesting place I visited in Poznan (summer 2010)
this is 1 of the funniest reviews everrrr!!!!
I remember reading that the last person in Europe to be publicly burned as a witch was a Poznanian. I wonder if she was met her end on this spot...?
On the picture is not a castle. Castle locates opposite to this building!!! Castle is nice.
A really excellent museum. Especially the tanks, the artillery and the small arms collection. If you plan to visit Poznan, you HAVE to see the army museum.
