Overview

The origin of the Museum goes back to 1971. Primarily the institution functioned asa regional Ethnographic Museum whose basic statutory task was collection of cultural goods within the scope of ethnography and folk art with particular attention to sculpture and iconography of Sierpc district. Embracing folk artists with sponsorship and collection of their works in the field of woodcarving became a superior motive of opening the museum. The Museum was located in the Town hall where exhibitions dedicated to folk sculpture from Sierpc vicinity and town history were arranged. In 1975 city authorities handed the area of former Bojanowo property for construction of the ethnographic museum and only two years later translocation of facilities from the north-western region of Mazovia was initiated. First buildings became available for sightseeing in 1985. Two years have passed when the institution received the name of the Museum of the Mazovian Countryside in Sierpc. Since 1999 the organiser of the Museum is the Board of the Mazovian Voivodeship and general supervision is in hands of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage. The Museum of the Mazovian Countryside in Sierpc primarily functioned as a one-branch institution. At present, the institution encompasses eight thematic areas: ethnographic, inventory, conservational, administration and investment, popularisation and promotion, environmental, constructional and financial.

Peaceful and relaxing place, really well kept, beautiful grounds. Lots of things to see. You should reserve a whole day not to rush through it. Kid friendly. Very well organized and the staff are pleasant and helpful. Beautiful views. Would definitely recommend it.

Nice place to bring children and to learn more about the Polish culture esp the countryside life You need to have at least 2 hours to enjoy the place. Also, would be better if they can provide english signages for non-polish visitors

Sierpc might be in Cittaslow city. Everything is pure and natural. Life is so slow. Warsaw is so close. Cute place to be a citizen

The best way would probably be by car. You can get there by public transport (PKS bus from Warsaw West or local train, Koleje Mazowieckie, from Modlin) but it's not very comfortable. The train is 2h from Modlin but that's on... More
