Overview

The mission of the Emigration Museum in Poland is to recount the fates of millions of both anonymous and famous people - whose names emerge in the context of great achievementsin science, sports, business, and the arts. It is the ambition of this institution to make them known to Poles at home, but it is also to encourage our compatriots living at home and abroad to get to know each other. Through educational and cultural projects, the museum hopes to become a place of encounter and discussion. We feel we fulfill a particular duty in achieving this end at the best possible address - Polska Street No. 1.

The museum is less than 2KM from the train station. Most of the days the entrance is free. Interesting facts about how Polish people had survived andseeked a new life abroad. Quite interesting presentation.

It’s a bit difficult to get to, a fair walk from the station or a taxi ride, but it’s a great museum. Very interactive with lots of information presented in interesting ways.

After all the glowing reports I felt somewhat underwhelmed. It'seems 1.5-2km from the station. On going in, the entrance fee was very reasonable. I was given a map ( after asking for one, it wasn't offered) and I found the layout confusing. I noticed sometimes...More

One of the best museums in Poland showing the history and harsh reality of Polish immigration to various locations around the world. Go to the bookshop and try the restaurant on the top floor - a hidden gem.
