History of Photography Museum - Strzelnica Branch

  ul. Królowej Jadwigi 220 ,   No District          (+48) 798 08 35 14     19 Jul 2019
The gorgeously renovated Stara Strzelnica shooting gallery is home to the new permanent exhibit of Kraków's Photography Museum. Located in Wola Justowska - an affluent neighbourhood west of the centre, the almost entirely wood and glass historical building dates back to the 1880s and was used as a shooting range by the Kraków Rifle Association and later by Piłsudski's Polish Legions. Though in ruins for decades, the building has been thoroughly restored and also features a fancy restaurant and bookshop. The permanent exhibit 'Portrait' examines the multifaceted nature of the photographic portrait and its evolution over time, including various photography equipment and techniques, culminating in the rise and prevalence of...the 'selfie' (gag). There are also small, temporary outdoor exhibits at the back of the building. To get there involves a 20min bus ride and short walk (take buses 102, 134, 152, 192, 252 or 902 and get off at 'Strzelnica'), but for shutterbugs, it's worth it just to photograph the building itself.
