On this year’s Night of the Museums, we will open the doors to all seven of our museum buildings with a rich programme of events, concerts, meetings and games prepared specially for this wonderful night. That said, a Museum is first and foremost about exhibitions, so first, we would like to remind you about what our departments have got to offer this May.

 At the Department of Historical Art, there is not only Memling’s famous Last Judgement to tempt the public but also the Pious and Virtuous, our ever-popular permanent exhibition where art reveals how the Gdańskers of old wanted to be seen. Was it a search for a moral compass or perhaps only superficial image building? Of course, the final judgement belongs to the public. At the Green Gate, you can see what a temptation big city life was already in the 18th century. The Coming Back Home exhibition is essentially the story of the intense longing of Pastor Johann Haselau for his native Gdańsk. And for us today, also an invaluable source of knowledge about the Gdańsk of old. At the Department of Ethnography in the Abbott’s Granary, the permanent exhibition presents the traditional forms of the rural economy of the various groups living in Gdańsk Pomerania: the Kashubians, Kociewians, Tuchola Borowians, North Vistulans (Powiślanie) or the Żuławy Lowlanders. The Charm and Fantasy temporary exhibition deals with an unusual topic, the history of advertising and fashion photography In communist Poland. It turns out that the temptation to stand out and be original was irresistible even in a centrally-planned communist economy. Next door, in the Abbotts’ Palace, are two more exhibitions: A New Look and August Zamoyski. To Think in Stone. So, on the one hand, there is a gallery of Polish contemporary art and, on the other hand, a huge monographic exhibition presenting the work and very colourful life of one of the most eminent Polish sculptors of the 20th century. If you still want more modern art, we, of course, recommend visiting NOMUS, the New Art Museum, where in the Collection in Action exhibition, we raise the question of how art and the artist work today? The exhibitions at our branches in Będomin and Waplewo Wielkie look back into the past, but of course, within the context of what is being discussed today. The Polish Parliament declared 2022 as the Year of Józef Wybicki, and so we recall the politician, lawyer, general and innovator who, however, in the public mind went down in history mainly as the author of one song. Of course, this song is obviously a considerable achievement. This is why at the other exhibition at the Polish National Anthem Museum, we present the entire story of the Song of the Polish Legions in Italy. Last but not least, we invite you to the palace interiors of the manor in Waplewo Wielkie, where you can learn about another inherent element of Polish culture, the gentry tradition.
