Description

The exhibition spaces are arranged at the upper floors of the meticulously restored tenement houses (kamienice) built during the Renaissance by immigrant Armenians in Poland who settled there in 1585, thanks to privileges granted by the Grand Hetman of the Crown Jan Zamoyski. The Museum is divided into six departments including Archeology, Library, Ethnography, General History, the Rotunda, and Education.
