Archdiocese Museum in Katowice

Perhaps the sweetest docents in the world guide tours (in Polish) through a fine and surprisingly large collection of Silesian Gothic-era sacral art. There are two galleries, though the first on the bottom floor features temporary, modern exhibits, currently the stained-glass inspired works of Werner Lobos. The main gallery upstairs has the permanent exhibition of wooden sculptures of Madonna, female saints, Christ and others, several restored and original triptychs as well as articles used by churches in the region.

Look for the museum sign and entrance below street level behind the Curia building near to the Christ the King Cathedral. During opening hours visitors may need to rap on the gated door to gain entrance as it usually sees few tourists, especially Sundays.
