The Collection

The collection was assembled throughout the 1990s and now offers a good overview of the cultural history of Silesia in the last centuries. The emphasis is on arts and crafts of the 17th – 19th Centuries. Important to the collection are geographical views of Silesia, objects from tourism and art from the Riesengebirge. Industrial culture, town life and the art of the classical modern movement are also included. 

Donations, usually from the hands of people originating from Silesia, play an important role in the collection. Continuous loans from the Federal Republic form the basic collection. In several cases it has been possible to acquire large and complete collections of coins and ceramics. In 2001 a large collection with works by teachers and artists of the Wroclaw Academy was purchased.
