As well as highlighting local ethnographic traditions, this better than average collection includes a large celebration of Roma (Gypsy) culture, which is allegedly the only such collection in Europe. A truly fascinating, if slightly dated, exhibition tracing Roma culture in Poland from its beginnings in the 15th century to their fate at the hands of the Nazis and beyond, the three rooms that make up the exhibition include some excellent maps, models, costumes and photographs; 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 several traditionally painted gypsy caravans.
Admission 8/5zł, family ticket 16zł; Sun free for the permanent exhibition. A special sweetheart ticket good for the Town Hall, both market square branches of the District Museum, and the Ethnography Museum is available for the paltry price of 16/10zł.
