The Museum of John Paul II and Primate Wyszyński


Offer: Free with Warsaw Pass

Tradition in a modern format. We invite you to visit the most characteristic building in Warsaw’s Wilanów neighbourhood – the Temple of Divine Providence, which houses beneath its dome a one-of-a-kind museum. This is a new cultural institution on the map of Warsaw and many people are surprised by the scale of the permanent exhibition. Come and see for yourself. 

The museum features fourteen audio-visual zones with large-format projections, art and exhibits. Visitors are accompanied by music composed especially for the exhibition by Michał Lorenc.

We tell 100 years of Polish history through the prism of the life and teachings of these two national heroes - from 1901 to 2005. This time period starts and ends with, respectively: the birth of Stefan Wyszyński and the death of John Paul II. Each thematic zone presents a unique a scenographic space that will help visitors enter the atmosphere of years gone by.

If you are an art lover, you will enjoy the paintings by Aldona Mickiewicz that illustrate the moment when Karol Wojtyła was elected Pope, a mural made by Piotr Młodożeniec in the zone commemorating the Second Vatican Council, works by Tadeusz Boruta and Marian Czapla and the absolutely unique The Ten Commandments Paintings series by avant-garde artist Stefan Gierowski.

If you prefer to focus on the exhibitions, you will see unique objects such as: equipment from a pre-war photography studio, a jewellery dress crafted from precious stones mounted on a Jasna Góra painting, a monstrance from the interwar period, personal items belonging to the museum’s featured heroes, a magnificent canopy made of wrought leather used by the primate in the Warsaw cathedral, and a field altar from the Second World War.

If knowledge is what you seek, you will find a wealth of quotes from these two learned men in both written and audio form, as well as archival photographs, documents and information.
