About Museum

The Ethnographic Museum in Kraków was born of the passion and reverence for cultures. For peasant culture. For European cultures. For exotic cultures. Today, the Museum endeavours to be the place where the new description of the world – bygone and contemporary, far and near – is made. The world of custom that we ourselves find to be a mirror. In other words: the museum wants to be a centre of reflection and understanding oneself and others.
