Artillery Museum in Toruń provides main exhibition in the museum building:
“HISTORY OF ARTILLERY – RISE AND DEVELOPMENT”,
and a temporary exhibition:
“100 ANNIVERSARY OF TORUŃ’S RETURN TO FREE POLAND”
The open-air exhibition consists of artillery and rocket equipment, in many cases not found in other military museums, such as the SNAR-2 radiolocation station and the 130 mm M-46 field gun. Particularly noteworthy is the 240 mm M-240 mortar and the 240 mm BM-24 rocket launcher. A significant part of the exhibition are ballistic missiles. The Artillery Museum is the only one in Poland that has a complete set of this equipment – the R-11M tactical missile set on the chassis of the ISU-152K self-propelled gun, ŁUNA-M (9P113 launcher on the ZIL 135LM chassis), the SCUD set, the 9K79 TOCZKA set and the 9P116 set, the so-called Frog 3.
The history of our institution dates back to the times of the Second Polish Republic. On June 1, 1923, by the decision of Marshal Józef Piłsudski, the Officer Artillery School was established, in which the Museum of Artillery Equipment was established. The rich collections of this museum and valuable archives did not survive World War II. In the post-war period, the Officers’ School of Artillery had copies of historical artillery equipment, which were used in the didactic process. It was not until the late 1960s that the idea of creating an artillery museum at the school emerged. Finally, on January 14, 1977, the Artillery Museum was established at the Military Academy of Rocket and Artillery. Gen. Józef Bem (WSO) in Toruń. The aim of the project was to support the historical education of soldiers and to cultivate artillery traditions. Construction works began in the spring of 1978. The ceremonial opening of the museum took place on September 2, 1978, on the day of the 45th promotion of university graduates. After the dismantling of the WSO, the museum was taken over by the Artillery and Armament Training Center established on April 22, 2002 in Toruń. In 2012, the collection of artillery equipment collected over many years was handed over to the Museum of Land Forces in Bydgoszcz, where the Museum of Artillery in Toruń was established, a branch of the Museum of Land Forces in Bydgoszcz. The new institution, continuing the museum and artillery traditions of Toruń, has been operating since September 2013.
