The basics

The museum’s permanent exhibition, the “Gallery of Young Poland’s Stained Glass Masters,” allows you to see beautifully preserved pieces of stained-glass work from the early 20th century. The artists whose masterpieces are showcased are Wojciech Jastrzębowski, Stefan Matejko, Józef Mehoffer, and Stanisław Wyspiański. Each piece of artwork has a story behind it, and all the artists have a special connection to Krakow as it’s where they trained and developed their skills. There are also regularly changing temporary exhibitions.
