We are preparing for the rebuild of the Museum

In the coming years, the Museum of Municipal Engineering will change beyond recognition. As a result of completed projects and renovations, the museum's exhibition possibilities will change radically, and the visitors will be able to admire the collections in much more comfortable conditions. Due to the approaching works, we are not able to keep open all exhibitions that we used to present. We kindly ask our visitors for understanding.


We invite you to our interactive exhibitions:
  • It's So Simple
  • More Light
  • Tramways at Wawrzyńca

St. Wawrzyńca Quarter, where the Museum's headquarters are located, seems to be a composed and complete space in which little can be changed - the more so because the area is subject to strict conservation protection. Therefore, when planning to expand the exhibition space, the designers decided to go underground. The existing basements will be used, after deepening, but also completely new underground halls will be hollowed out. As a result, the exhibition space will increase from the current 3,200 m2 to approx. 5.943 m2. Thanks to this, we will be able to present at the same time:
  • four permanent exhibitions
  • at least three temporary exhibitions.

What is important - separate buildings will be connected with glazed overground passages, which will allow comfortable viewing of the exhibition without having to go outside. In these areas permanent exhibitions will be created virtually anew and, in addition, several important monuments of technology will be subjected to all-round renovation and finally shown to visitors.

The museum's development and modernization plans promise to be very ambitious and include not only the reconstruction of the division at ul. Św. Wawrzyńca 15, but also:
  • creation of a new division of the Museum in the historic hangar at ul. I. Stella-Sawickiego with adaptation of adjoining green areas
  • preparation of winter attractions of Stanisław Lem Science Garden
