The Museum of Architecture in Wrocław

  • Daria Dorota Pikulska (Autor/in)


The Museum of Architecture in Wrocław is the only museum institution in Poland dedicated to the history of architecture. Founded in 1965, it is housed in a gothic monastery whose history plays a large part in defining the character of the museum. While its historical setting is accessible to the public, it lacks a modern exhibition space, creating the need for a newly constructed addition to the building. Several departments handle acquisition and item description. The museum produces programmes and events addressed to professional architects, historians and to the general public. The Department of Education plays an important part, preparing workshops, lectures and other events. The modernised museum website will soon make the collection available online and facilitate e-learning.
