Pan Tadeusz Museum

Located in a historic tenement house in the heart of Wrocław’s Market Square – Pan Tadeusz Museum, operating within the framework of the National Institute of Ossoliński – can boast not only of having in its collections the most valuable Polish literary manuscript. Why is it worth visiting?

This unique, modern Museum tells about the creation and fate of an extraordinary book – perhaps the last one, fragments of which almost all Poles know by heart. The only existing manuscript of Mickiewicz’s Pan Tadeusz, surrounded by several hundred authentic manuscripts, old prints, graphics, paintings, sculptures and everyday objects, and all complemented by over a hundred applications and multimedia presentations – is an effective invitation to talk about Polish culture and the history of the struggle for an independent homeland. Exhibitions devoted to “witnesses to history” – Jan Nowak-Jeziorański and Władysław Bartoszewski, as well as the Museum’s rich educational and artistic program broaden this perspective and allow for a real dialogue with the most interesting threads of contemporary culture.


The Pan Tadeusz Museum invites not only to permanent exhibitions The Manuscript of “Pan Tadeusz” and Mission: Poland, but also to temporary exhibitions. Work is currently underway on the preparation of the third part of the permanent exhibition devoted to the life and work of Tadeusz Różewicz, the collection of which has been donated to the Ossolineum.


An important goal of the museum is to expand the program and broaden the accessibility for people with disabilities. An equally important part of the mission is the organization of the #muzealniaki campaign, under which the Pan Tadeusz Museum, along with numerous institutions and organizations, promotes the presence of children in spaces related to culture.


The museum is located in one of the most beautiful bourgeois buildings in Wrocław – Kamienica pod Złotym Słońcem, on the western frontage of the Market Square.


The Pan Tadeusz Museum is part of the National Institute of Ossoliński, who has been shaping the way of thinking about tradition and cultural identity for two hundred years.
