Praga Museum of Warsaw
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.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Museum is closed until further notice!
