Stained Glass Museum

 

Located in the premises of S.G. Żeleński's historic stained glass studio, this 'living museum' offers the truly unique opportunity of visiting an active stained glass workshop, where you'll witness masters at work, learn the artistic process involved in producing large-scale glass installations, and see some superb designs and examples of finished works from throughout the over hundred-year history of the studio. Known as the 'cradle of Polish stained glass art,' Żeleński opened this studio in 1902 as a place for the best artists of the Młoda Polska/Art Nouveau era to meet and work, including such luminaries as WyspiańskiMehoffer and Stefan Matejko (nephew of Jan). Many of PL's most outstanding examples of stained glass were created here, and today the studio remains the largest of its kind in the country.
