The new headquarters of the many branches of the Tarnów District Museum, located in a historical building right on the Rynek, hosts temporary exhibits and the small permanent exhibit 'That's Tarnów - Great Tarnovians,' which manages to catalogue the city's full history, from its fledgling 14th-century founding days up to the present, in just one room. En route, the exhibit touches upon its favourite sons Jan Tarnowski, General Józef Bem and Tadeusz Tertil, while also sparing some space for the contributions of the Jewish population. If you're not particularly invested in Slavic archaeology and artefact restoration, or proving you know more than the locals, than you can probably skip this one.
Admission 8/5zł, family ticket 16zł; Sun free for the permanent exhibition. A special sweetheart ticket good for both market square branches of the Tarnów District Museum, the Town Hall and the Ethnography Museum is available for the paltry price of 16/10zł.
