The Wola district was once the centre of Warsaw’s heavy industry, and chimneys characterised the image of this area. Today, Wola stands for progress and development. In just 30 years it has become the Business City Centre and the smokestacks have been replaced by skyscrapers.
Short description of the exhibition
O n the museum’s website one can read that the exhibition combines the history of the district with modernity and its challenges. According to the programme, the special exhibitions will be the real core, as they will address and deal with the current problems of this area and, if possible, put forward possible solutions.
The exhibitions are intended to recall the people, places and events, because it was they who made this district what it is today. The motive is also to bring the local groups of people closer together. We find it very nice that in addition to the elderly, children and youth, foreigners and new residents should also be included, regardless of their origin.
In October 2019, the museum was reopened after four years of renovation work and presents itself very modern and contemporary. Therefore, we think that tourists are also welcome to visit here.
We also recommend this museum to tourists
T ourists who come to Warsaw stay here for 1.7 days on average. In this short time, there are indeed many other museums that should be visited and which we have to prefer to this museum in our recommendation. But the Wola Museum is still worth a visit. This museum is especially recommended for those who had already got to know the city a little better and now want to get to grips with local topics.
