Permanent exhibitions

1000 years of Wroclaw- this is one of the most modern museum exhibitions in Poland, where  historical heritage of the city situated on the Odra meets with the latest exhibition technology. As part of the exhibition over 3000 illustrative objects of history of Wroclaw were collected, from the early Middle Ages up to the present. Here they found things, unique and valuable. A large part of them has never been presented in Wroclaw. It is thoroughly and with a pep of complex and difficult history of Breslau told -from the founding of the diocese in 1000 until after the millennium year 2000. Attractiveness and quality of the exposition are increased by its interactivity: audio-visual means, musical background and appropriate interior design. Currently it is the most modern exhibition that documents the history of a city in Poland. The synthesis of a Central European metropolis presented here is an excellent introduction to the understanding of the history of Lower Silesia and gives a reason to explore Breslau.
