Overview

Muzeum Slaskie comprises a building complex erected at the site of the former mine and represents a perfect combination of the region’s identity with state-of-the-art architectural solutions. Such result was achieved thanks to the maximum use of underground space, and therefore relatively low interference with the local, post-industrial landscape. Impressive spaces are vast and modern and at the same time maintain the memory of place, which closely corresponds with the Museum’s cultural policy. The new building of Muzeum Slaskie, raised as a result of the local inhabitants’ needs and some brave decisions, has quickly and naturally become the crucial cultural centre of the region, a remarkably important Silesian social life hub and a significant contributor on the cultural map of Poland. The new building allowed us to display valuable exhibits, which we were unable to present to the visitors earlier, and create the “The Light of History. Upper Silesia over the Ages.” exhibition — an innovative event, which is both important for the region and emotional. However, opening new exhibitions in just one of the goals fulfilled by the Silesian Museum. It is people who matter most to us and that is why we are proud to have established a dynamic and thriving meeting place.

We came away wondering what the museum was about. Direction signs were poor from the carpark onwards. Security searches like an airport seemed excessive and we were followed throughout our visit. All the exhibits were closed except for the Polish Art gallery, and the exhibitions...More

If you want to really learn something about the region of Górny Śląsk, this is the right place to visit. Probably the best, considering its size and modernness. In some aspects one could compare it to the Warsaw Uprising Museum. I spent there 2 hours,...More

Beautiful historic site with the preserved factory space but in the winter the most beautiful part of the museum is closed and the permanent collections are average.
