Ethnographic Museum [Muzeum Etnograficzne]

Ethnographic Museum

Tragically overlooked by far too many visitors to Warsaw (who can’t see past World War II and communism) this is a joy of a museum that showcases and highlights all that’s best about Poland’s cultural heritage. There are costumes, handicrafts, furniture, Polish inventions, art, photographs; most of it is beautifully presented in what is a superb building.The museum is one of the city’s most active, putting on all sorts of temporary exhibitions and organising hands-on events and workshops. Directors of Warsaw’s other museums might want to come and take notes. Just brilliant, and unquestionably essential. A major renovation was recently completed and the new permanent exhibits "Ordinary Extraordinary" and "Time to Celebrate Polish and European Folk Culture" can be explored. 

Admission 12/6zł. For students up to 16 years of age 1zł. Saturdays are free.

  • I took my father to this museum on a rainy afternoon and we had a great time. For anyone whose ancestors emigrated from Poland in the 19th or early 20th century this museum will give you an idea of the life they and their ancestors led in Poland. Wonderful photograph collection and yes surprisingly good exhibits of African and Australian art that you'd never expect. Definitely worth a visit and despite viewing the exhibits for a couple of hours the visit didn't tire us out.
