Richter's Granary, built in 1780, was at first located at the junction of Kopernika and Wolności Streets.It was a place of storing building materials, lime and coal, but mainly it was a place of storing fodder. Currently a place of temporary exhibitions of the Museum and a stylish teahouse.
In 1986, the Museum of Central Pomerania became the owner of the building. In the years 1994-1998, the building was systematically moved with great precision and delicacy to the Fishermen’s Market, in the immediate vicinity of the Pomeranian Dukes’ Castle, the castle mill and the historic gate of the Słupsk stronghold. This procedure made it possible to create a place in Słupsk that, with its style and atmosphere, refers to the best times for the city. The facility was commissioned on May 22, 1998.
The building was constructed with a quadrangular design, similar to a long rectangle. The western wall of the granary contains three entrances (including the garage gate). The main entrance is located in the southern gable wall. There are four evacuation exits in the eastern wall on the riverside. Near the western wall there are staircases to the upper floor and in the northern part there is a goods and passenger elevator. It is a one-storey building, without a basement and with a two-storey, usable attic.
Currently Richter’s Granary features a temporary exhibition room of the Museum of the Middle Pomerania and a stylish tea-house. The Museum also uses its space for storage rooms and workshops.
The tea-house hosts poster, graphics, photography and painting exhibitions. Inside the tea-house you can listen to live music. The floor area of approx. 120 m2 contains around 70 seats. During the summer you can also sit in the outside area.
From the very beginning of June, Słupsk hosts the Griffin’s Fair. It is a cyclical event with the intent of representing the local initiatives in the area of culture and art. Each Sunday, the Fishermen’s Market and the castle courtyard are filled with stalls full of unusual items. It creates a unique opportunity for the local non-Governmental organisations, non-union manufacturers and hobbyists to present their works.
