"Great Moravia" was hosted at our Museum from 17 December 2017 to 24 June 2018. It told about one of the first Slavic countries that played an important role in Central Europe in the 9th century, the centre of which was Moravia.
"VIKINGS IN POLAND? Scandinavian finds from Polish lands"
"VIKINGS IN POLAND? Scandinavian finds from Polish lands" is the title of a temporary exhibition that could be seen in our Museum from February 24 to November 22, 2017. There, we presented over 130 original finds related to the culture of early medieval Scandinavia, which were found in today's Poland.
As the title suggests, the exhibition was about toys - from the early Middle Ages to the present day. We wanted to show that just as the world changed, so did the toys. Some common features always remained - regardless of the era, however. We have gathered over 400 artefacts at the exhibition.
"Baptism - St. Adalbert - Poland. The heritage of medieval Gniezno"
The exhibition was prepared on the occasion of the 1050th anniversary of the baptism of Mieszko I. It presented the importance of the baptism and its consequences, both political and cultural, for the beginnings of Poland, on the example of Gniezno. The exhibition was the result of cooperation between the Museum, the Archdiocese Archives in Gniezno and the Museum of the Archdiocese of Gniezno.
"Historical craftsmanship in Poland"
The exhibition was focused on the craftsmanship in the territory of present-day Polish lands, from prehistory to the early Middle Ages. It showed various facets of this, from obtaining the raw material, through its processing, to the finished product. In this way, we showed just how many activities had to be done in the past to create such an inconspicuous thing as, for example, a simple clay vessel - all by hand.
The legend of mother of kings
Was the mysterious daughter of Mieszko I and Dobrawa one of the most powerful women of her time? A queen of three countries? A mother of three kings? Including even Knut the Great - the ruler of both Scandinavia and England – who was one of the most important rulers of the early Middle Ages? These questions are answered by the mobile exhibition of the Museum of the Origins of the Polish State in Gniezno.
Saint Adalbert and the Gniezno doors
What did St. Adalbert die for? What were the consequences of his death? Why were the Gniezno doors created and how to read them? These and other questions are answered by our next mobile exhibition and the accompanying animation with LIVE Action elements. We have prepared it especially to be presented in schools, cultural institutions and other places in the country and abroad.
