The Henryk Sienkiewicz Literature Museum


The Henryk Sienkiewicz Literary Museum is located in a Renaissance house that once belonged to Giovanni Baptiste Quadro, an Italian architect and creator of the Poznań City Hall. In adapting the building to serve as the museum, the designers were careful to preserve architectural details such as antique ceilings, niches, arches, pillars and moldings. The Museum's collections are displayed in turn-of-the-century interiors. Its rooms contain samples of 19th and 20thcentury artisanship, works of art, books, etc., all arranged around motifs related to Sienkiewicz's life and work.
