This building on the corner of Lazienna and Ciasna dates back to the 14th century and was originally the home of a wealthy family named Esken. A couple hundred years later it was converted into a granary and in the 19th century the exterior was given its distinct red color (that's why it's sometimes referred to as the red granary). The sandstone portal around the doorway is beautiful and features the Esken family Coat of Arms. Today, the building houses yet another branch of the Regional Museum.
