Ethnographic Museum, branch of the National Museum


The Ethnographic Museum (branch of the National Museum of Poznań) is housed in the historic building of an old freemason lodge, surrounded by a historic baroque-style park featuring old-growth trees and a 17th-century well in its centre. The museum upholds a Wielkopolska tradition, which was started by the Poznań Ethnological Society in 1910. It is one of Poland's oldest museums dedicated to revealing the richness of folk culture. Its collections present the culture of Poland and Wielkopolska as well as that of remote, unknown and exotic regions. The museum strives to serve as a place for learning, discussion, reflection and exchange of views.
