It is located in a restored complex of historic tenements at Targowa Street, next to the legendary Różycki market. You will see here an impressive model of eighteenth-century Praga, archival photographs and souvenirs donated to the institution by the residents themselves.
One of the most interesting exhibitions is a room with treasures straight from the former market – the popular toys and souvenirs will evoke warm memories in many visitors.
The history of the tenements themselves is also interesting. One of them – the house of Jan Krzyżanowski – was erected in the second half of the 18th century and is the oldest surviving residential house in Praga. Another used to house a Jewish house of prayer, as evidenced by polychromes depicting the signs of the zodiac, Jews praying at the Wailing Wall and the tomb of Rachel in Bethlehem.
