Józef Mehoffer House

  ul. Krupnicza 26 ,   Old Town          (+48) 12 433 58 80     16 Sep 2022

Mehoffer was one of the turn of the 20th century's artistic elite, a skilled stained-glass artist collaborating with Wyspiański on the interiors of numerous Kraków churches, as well as his own installations across Galicia. This, his house, was where the artists of the Młoda Polska (Young Poland) movement often met and is a delight to visit, filled with elegant furnishings, Art Deco to impressionist-era art and many sketches, designs and finished stained glass pieces that attest to his important artistic legacy. Ironically, it was also in this very house that Stanisław Wyspiański was born, as a plaque out front attests; the family sold it when Stan was four years old, and the Mehoffer's later bought and renovated it. Today it is a branch of the Kraków National Museum, dedicated to Mehoffer's life and legacy and Polish Art Nouveau. In warmer months you won't find a more magical place to relax and read a book than the hidden garden behind the house, presided over by Meho Cafe - one of the city's best-kept secrets.
