Located in a unique 18th century manor house, the better than average collection of this branch of the Tarnów Regional Museum highlights local ethnographic traditions, including a large celebration of Roma (Gypsy) culture, which is allegedly the only such exhibit in Europe. The truly fascinating exhibition traces Roma culture in Poland from its beginnings in the 15th century to its tragic fate at the hands of the Nazis and beyond, and includes some excellent maps, models, costumes and photographs over three rooms. [Note that this exhibit is currently being renovated and will be available again from April 2020.] With about 350 Roma living in the Tarnów area, their culture is still very much alive locally. In the museum’s back garden you'll find two traditionally painted gypsy caravans on display year-round. The museum is also home to occasional temporary exhibits.
