Entrance of the museum

The Museum of Architecture (in Polish: Muzeum Architektury) is in Wrocław, Poland.[1] The museum was founded in 1965.[2]

The museum is the only architecture museum in Poland.[3] It is located in a 15th-century post-Bernardine set of buildings, including the St Bernardine of Sienna Church and a monastic quadrangle with a garden.

The Museum of Architecture was a founder-member of the International Confederation of Architectural Museums (ICAM).[3]

The museum's collections illustrate the evolution of architecture in general, although with a specific focus on Poland. The largest collection of stained glass in Poland can be found here. Permanent exhibitions on display are: "Relics of Wroclaw's Mediaeval Architecture"; "Architectural Craft from the Twelfth to the Twentieth Century"; "Wroclaw: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow"; "The Art of Geometry: A Gallery of Polish Geometrical and Constructivist Art".[4]
