Established in 1957, this local museum found its first seat in a historic arcaded house from the 18th century. In 1985, the museum was moved to its present seat, which is a post-Franciscan monastery. The Franciscan monastery in Pyzdry is one of the three buildings of Franciscan architecture in Greater Poland that have survived from the Middle Ages. The museum exhibition was created in the rooms that originally housed the monastery's refectory, monastery kitchen and cellars. In 1989, the supervision over the activity of the museum was taken over by the Self-government of the Pyzdry Commune. In addition to its statutory activities, the museum then dealt with an important area in the functioning of local governments, i.e. social education and promotion of the city.
