The idea to establish a museum in Bydgoszcz was implemented only when the city had been taken over by Polish authorities in 1920, after the period of German Prussion patrition. The newly established Municipal Museum did not have abundant collections; these were first of all historical items from the fields of archaeology, history, numismatics and ethnography. After necessary adaptation works, the Municipal Museum named after Leon Wyczolkowski was officially opened on April 11, 1946.
Permanent exhibitions:

Presented are the various artefacts associated with Bydgoszcz's history, the life of its residents and the changes of architecture over centuries.
In the exhibition one can see the sets of the following items:
- objects related to religious matters, including items related to the non-existent buildings,

- collection of various memorabilia associated with the town and its inhabitans.
Bydgoszcz. City scraps
The exhibition without the exhibition hall. All photographs have been placed on communication ways, accompanying visitors from the entrance to the museum. The other aspect is the nature of photography. So far it was the city of Bydgoszcz to be the hero of exhibitions and photo albums produced by the museum. This time is differently: the city became the backdrop for people and events.
