Beyond that, the early history of the city is briefly detailed before a large space about Ignacy Łukasiewicz and the oil industry. You’ll see the original 16th century sculpture of ‘the Worrying Jesus’ from the shrine in Zawodzie, a prototype of the first kerosene lamp, Łukasiewicz’s original equipment for distilling oil, a collection of oil lamps, machinery, memorabilia and more. Upstairs is a small ethnography exhibit with Lemko and Pogórzan folk costumes, and the first room holds changing exhibits.
All told, it’s a modest but fascinating collection and the staff are truly friendly and knowledgeable. It must be noted, however, that aside from the Battle of Gorlice, none of the displays have English translations.
