Museum of Polish Diplomacy and Emigration
The Museum of Diplomacy and Polish Refugee is above all the history of the life and activities of Polish emigration after 1945. The Museum is a research and development unit of the Kazimierz Wielki University acquiring, collecting, storing, as well as developing and making available all materials held for the history of Polish diplomacy and Polish exile. The most important goal of the Museum's activity is to disseminate historical knowledge about the problems of Polish diplomacy and Polish refugee as well as conduct extensive dissemination activities by: developing source publications containing printed materials, manuscripts, maps, correspondence, etc. The museum is also a world of diplomacy seen from various perspectives: traces of the activity of inter-war foreign institutions and souvenirs of former ambassadors and consuls. From 2014, the museum boasts a unique silence cabin. An intriguing exhibit, donated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, once served employees of the Consulate General in Cologne to conduct top secret conversations. It is the only object of this type in civil hands.
The museum is open from Monday to Friday 10-16. You do not need to make an appointment in advance, but you must do it if you want to use the archives.
