Museum of Bells & Pipes

An odd branch of the National Museum in Przemyśl, this Baroque clock tower dates to 1777 and has been host to the quirky but beloved Museum of Bells & Pipes since 2001. Located in a tolling tower meant to be part of the never-built Greek Catholic Church, the exhibit of church bells fits; Przemyśl is home to a bell foundry, after all. It follows then that the pipes would be organ pipes, flutes and perhaps other musical instruments, right? Wrong. Przemyśl is also known as the Polish capital of smoking pipes, an unusual claim to fame supported by the city's several pipe manufacturers. Strange as it is, this museum is core to Przemyśl's cultural heritage. The displays are slight but certainly fascinating, and the tower also serves as an observation point offering views of the Old Town.




Open 09:00-16:00. Sun 11:00-15:00, Closed Mon.
