The Museum of History of Photography, building

The Walery Rzewuski Museum of History of Photography in Kraków or the Muzeum Historii Fotografii w Krakowie is a state-run photography museum in Kraków, Poland, established as the only one of its kind mere three years before the collapse of the Soviet empire followed by a further blow to communist economic planning. The venue survived with flying colors thanks to new programmes. The building of the Museum is located at ul. Józefitów 16 street in the district of Krowodrza (north-west of Kleparz).[1]

Museum mission is the collecting and popularizing of historical photographs, as well as research and more recently digital transfer of images for the online museum. Aside from exhibits and international symposiums, the Museum is in charge of its own vast library of albums, catalogues, books and manuals, as well as a press room.[2]
