Museums in Poland

There are more than 750 museums in Poland, greatly differing in their character. Most significant for Polish cultural heritage are the museums in the royal castles: on Wawel Hill in Krakow and in Warsaw. Some museums are widely known, e.g. Lancut Castle, some are quite unheard of, like the poetess Maria Konopnicka’s manor house at Zarnowiec.

There are interior expositions as well as displays of old technology, for example at Krzemionki Opatowskie, Nowa Slupia or Duszniki Zdroj. There are a lot of biographical, historical and natural history museums, a few theatrical, one of matchboxes and one of sundials. Most museums are public, but some are church or privately owned, e.g. the Czartoryski Museum in Krakow.
