The Museum of the History of Katowice


MAIN BUILDING. TENEMENT HOUSE: THE MUSEUM OF THE HISTORY OF KATOWICE

 

ul. ks. J. Szafranka 9, 40-025 Katowice

 

Exhibition opening hours: Tuesday, Thursday: 10.00 am – 3.00 pm Wednesday, Friday: 10.00 am – 5.30 pm Saturday: 10.00 am - 4.00 pm Sunday: 11.00 am – 3.00 pm

 

The main building and most of the Museum’s departments are located in a historic tenement house which was built at the beginning of the 20th century. Its exclusive premises were once occupied by wealthy citizens of the city. Having appreciated the building’s virtues, the Local Government in Katowice decided to allocate the House to the Museum in 1979. In order to faithfully reconstruct middle-class interiors, a permanent exhibition was created in situ.

PERMANENT EXHIBITION: FROM THE HISTORY OF KATOWICE

The exhibition is devoted to remarkable figures and land - mark events that made the history of Katowice. The city’s rural beginnings and subsequent major changes relating to industrial development are explained in an intelligible man - ner. The exhibits as well as the use of multimedia facilitate tracing the history of Katowice – from a small settlement to a city.

 

INSIDE THE TENEMENT: DAILY LIFE AND ENTERTAINMENT and AT THE NEIGHBOURS, IN THE SALON AND IN THE KITCHEN

The exhibition presents two model apartments from the turn of the 19th and 20th century shown in the original interior of a tenement which dates back to 1910. The exhibition concept has been predetermined by the city’s pre-war history. Therefore, by using the natural space of the tenement with preserved original features, we were able to restore two locations: an apartment of an upper-class family and the other one belonging to a middle-class family.

In the interwar period, the Silesian Parliament (Sejm) was in the legislative authority of the autonomous Silesian voivodeship. In the years 1925-1929, a magnificent edifice was built in Katowice, which became the seat of both the Silesian Parliament and the Voivodeship Office. The building was the largest in Poland at that time. It- was built in the neo- Classicist style. The Parliament Hall became a model for the Sejm of the Republic of Poland, which was being constructed at the same time.
