Description

Established in 1994 on the initiative of Andrzej Wajda and Krystyna Zachwatowicz as the Manggha Centre of Japanese Art and Technology, the museum was a branch of the National Museum in Kraków for a decade.

In January 2005, by decision of the Minister of Culture, Manggha was separated from the structures of the National Museum in Kraków and until the 1st September 2007 it acted as an autonomous cultural institution. On the 1st September 2007, it changed its status to that of a museum, which was to fulfil the role of the European centre of Far East.

For years, the institution has promoted knowledge about Japan, Japanese culture, art, customs and technology. From the beginning of its existence, it has combined two functions: purely museum-based and that of an active cultural centre.
