About the Museum

This unique, modern Museum tells the story of an extraordinary book – perhaps the last one known (in fragments) by nearly all Poles by heart. The only existing manuscript of Adam Mickiewicz's Pan Tadeusz, accompanied by several hundred authentic other manuscripts, old prints, etchings, paintings, sculptures and objects of daily use and complemented by over a hundred applications and multimedia presentations create an impressive invitation to a conversation about Polish culture and the history of struggle for an independent country. Exhibitions dedicated to “witnesses of history” – Jan Nowak-Jeziorański and Władysław Bartoszewski, as well as a rich educational and art programme of the Museum expand the perspective and offer a chance to enter a real dialogue with the most interesting themes in contemporary culture.


The Pan Tadeusz Museum utilises various artistic techniques along with theatrical and performative tools.
