Pursuing Dreams: Spa Culture in Europe

Jul 3 - Sep 19 2021       ul. Traugutta 111/113
This exhibit examines the very European tradition of visiting health resorts and spas, which particularly flourished from the 17th to 19th centuries. How did the dreams and expectations connected with visiting health resorts change over time, and why – apart from improving their health – did people go to spas? How did they spend their time during these visits? These are some of the questions addressed in the displays which comprise old photographs, postcards, prints and souvenirs (such as glasses, goblets, plates and cups with ‘spa’ motifs), as well as examples of clothes worn when staying at spas. For those yearning for a similar escape, but unable to leave the city, the exhibit includes a relaxation zone full of games, books and other attractions.



Open 10:30-16:00. Sun 10:00-18:00, Closed Mon. Jul 3 2021 - Sep 19 2021
