Description

The museum gathers religious objects from three fields: painting, sculpture and decorative art.

The purpose of the museum consists in its permanent exhibition presenting a thousand-year-old artistic acquis of religious art found on the territory of the Kraków Archdiocese combined with protection and conservation of monuments. The museum also organises temporary exhibitions promoting modern religious art.

The current display, which initiated the activity of the museum, presents objects of religious art from the treasury of St. Mary's Basilica in Kraków and selected religious art from the area of the diocese (churches in Dębno and Korzkiew, Church of the Bernardine Sisters in Kraków).
