The origin of Polish brass bands goes back to the Prussian army. Soldiers-musicians upon leaving the military service would form musical ensembles usually associated with a local parish, Voluntary Fire Brigade and later on with a particular coal mine. They would play at weddings, funerals and most famously at Barbórka, national celebration of coal mining culture. Photographs and memorabilia commemorating brass bands' Golden Age are displayed at the exhibition.
