Archdiocesan Museum of Cardinal Karol Wojtyla

ul. Kanonicza 19-21, Kraków


The two town houses on Kanonicza Street that presently house the collection of the Archdiocesan Museum of Kraków used to be Karol Wojtyła's respective homes between 1953 and 1967.

First, he was given lodging at number 19, and later, as a bishop, at number 21 in the so-called Deanery. Today, the museum displays mementos related to the pope, and allows visitors into the room where Wojtyła lived.

The complete and yet very modest room has been filled with objects he left behind, including a professor's gown, bishop's and the cardinal's cassocks, manuscripts, published books, fountain pens, as well as Wojtyła's first skis from 1954. Apart from private objects, it is worth noticing showpieces donated to the museum by the pope himself.
