The seat of the Złotów regional museum is a half-timbered burgher house from the 18th century. After thorough renovations (repair and modernization works were carried out under the supervision of the Department of History of Arts and Architecture of the Warsaw Institute of Technology for 3 years) in 1966, the museum was handed over for use with the mission statement "to propagate attachment and love to the land of our ancestors ".
The Złotów Land Museum houses archeological, historic and ethnographic exhibits related to the town and its surroundings (Krajna Złotowska).
The department of archeology displays exhibits from archeological excavations carried out in the territory of the Złotów district in the post-war period, especially sites in Maryniec, Stawnica and Stara Wiśniewka. The artifacts and tools on display are divided by historic periods: stone axes and arrowheads from the Neolithic period, ornaments and ceramics from the Bronze Age as well as urns and box-shaped graves - typical representations of the Pomeranian culture.
In the burgher parlor from the early 20th century, we can see Złotów as a border area of three cultures: Polish, German and Jewish from this period. A separate exhibition is devoted to the Union of Poles in Germany and the works of Rev. Dr. Bolesław Domański, as well as Polish education during the interwar period.
The richest ethnographic division of the museum, featuring a brick black kitchen and a traditional Krajna living chamber, illustrates the folk culture of our region.
Moreover, the museum houses temporary and themed exhibitions, often using collections from other museums, individual artists or collectors.
A very rich selection of books on the region is published by the Złotów Land Museum Library together with authors collaborating with the museum.
