Welcome to the website of the Museum
of the Origins of the Polish State in Gniezno



The mission of the Museum is to shed some light on the cultural heritage and history of the beginnings of the Polish State and the later fate of the region, as it was the cradle of our statehood; to present it to the contemporary generations and to preserve it for posterity.

Our work is to shape a citizen, who, knowing and respecting his own identity, with the ability to think critically, can understand the world around them better and who can consciously participate in the shaping of the future.

TEMPORARY EXHIBITION


TEMPORARY EXHIBITION

"Great Lechia - big fake"

This is a particularly important exhibition, because it tells about a certain conspiracy theory and pseudoscientific deliberations about what allegedly happened in Poland long before Mieszko.

The exhibition is open until February 26, 2023.
PERMANENT EXHIBITION

Beginnings of the Polish State

Our main exhibition is devoted to the beginnings of Polish statehood. We feature artefacts (and their functional replicas) related to this topic, from all over Poland. The chronological exhibition covers the period from the beginning of the 10th century (i.e. before Mieszko I) to the 13th century.
PERMANENT EXHIBITION

Slavic motifs in art

At this exhibition, we present the culture of our Slavic ancestors as seen through the eyes of artists from different eras. For centuries, they referred in their works to the culture of the early medieval Slavic region. The uniqueness of the exhibition is the fact, that from time to time we change the exhibits presented at it, and thus – we show different approaches to the subject.
