Foucault pendulum, which demonstrates the rotation of the Earth, has been installed in the largest building of Toruń Mills. This is the first exhibit in the emerging Modernity Centre "The Mill of Knowledge" - an interactive science and technology museum. With length exceeding 33 meters, it is the largest such structure permanently installed in Poland. Such a device was used in 1851 by Jean Bernard Léon Foucault, to prove that the Earth is rotating.
