Stained Glass Museum Tours

Operating as Krakow’s homage to stained glass, the city's Stained Glass Museum combines art exhibits with a 1902 stained glass workshop, where visitors can learn about the centuries-old production process of creating stained glass, in addition to exploring the preserved workshop's various rooms, furnishings and equipment. Museum guides share interesting stories of the many pieces on display, one of which was forgotten for decades when it was hidden away in the basement for protection during World War II.

The churches of Krakow are renowned for their sparkling stained-glass windows, an art form that reached its peak in the Art Nouveau years at the start of the 20th century. At that time, many famous Polish stained-glass craftsmen—including Józef Mehoffer and Stanisław Wyspiański—created their swirling, colorful and patterned masterpieces at this workshop, opened by Polish artist SG Żeleński in 1902. In the exhibition space, travelers will find both historical and contemporary pieces, some of which are from the most renowned artists of the Polish Art Nouveau period.
