The 21st century in the Princes Czartoryski Museum in Krakow

The renovation and modernisation of the Princes Czartoryski Museum in Krakow is currently one of the most important museum projects in Poland. Its primary aim is to adapt the oldest Polish museum to the standards of the 21st century and to continue the “Past for the Future” mission that was established by Princess Izabela Czartoryska, who opened the first Polish national museum – the Temple of Remembrance, later called the Temple of the Sibyl – – in Puławy in 1801.

The comprehensive renovation and modernisation of the Museum began with the dislocation of collections in January 2010. In April 2012 the stage of works carried out under the project Protection of the holding of the Princes Czartoryski Foundation at the National Museum in Krakow against destruction and theft as a form of protection of the European cultural heritage was completed. Currently the final stage of modernisation is under way, i.e. an exhibition is being arranged in gallery rooms and all interiors are being adapted to modern museum functions. The reopening of the Museum is planned in 2015.

Soon you will enter this place and discover new spaces for great art. We invite you to visit the virtual Czartoryski Museum already now.
