The Museum of Applied Arts is a branch of the National Museum in Poznan. It is located on the Przemysl Hill, in the very heart of the city of Poznan. The castle tower which is 43 meters high, offers a unique view of the city and its surroundings.

In the space of 1500 m² in the joint buildings of the Przemysł Castle and Raczyński’s edifice, a new exhibition, devoted  entirely to the applied art, is presented. It is the only such place in Poland. Amongst 2000 objects arranged in a unique way, one can find furniture, ceramics, glass and metal, weapons, jewellery, fabrics, costumes and accessories. The museum presents applied art from Middle Ages until modern times.

To preserve the memory of the royal past of the place that the museum is situated in, an exhibition concerning Przemysl II  and the history of the Castle has been placed on the ground floor.
