About
The main building of the Tatra Museum is a valuable monument of architecture in the Zakopane Style. It was built between 1913 and 1922 to a design worked out jointly by Stanislaw Witkiewicz (façade) and Franciszek Mączyński (technical design). Though modified over the years, the exhibition in the main building has survived to this day unchanged in its basic concept. As before, the goal is to give the visitor an insight into the most important aspects of the natural environment in the Tatra Mountains and the region of Podhale, the history of the area and the local people's way of living, as well as their culture.

The Tatra Museum has many branches besides just its Main Building, and it is a great way to get to know the history and culture of Zakopane. Although the descriptions are only in Polish, it is still easy to follow the exhibits. Artwork, historical artifacts, natural history, and specimens of Tatra Highlander culture are all on display. For anyone visting Zakopane that wishes to see more than just Krupowki Street, the Tatra Museum is an excellent way to get to know the city and its history.

Visited on a Sunday, it is tucked away right off the main tourist street. The museum is two floors with exhibits of animals, rocks and history. I went on the first Sunday of the month and it was free.

Note it is free on a Sunday. A museum with an English hand out sheet to assist as you go around. We found it very interesting with fauna and flora, geology and local life sections.

A very interesting museum of the history of Zakopane named after Tytus Chałubiński. Must visit and especially when the weather will not be perfect.

This is the key musuem of Zakopane and the Tatra region and forma a pivotal base for the rest of the museum network which are dotted in different villas of the Zakopane style around the town. Here you can see examples of the local Tatra and Goralski culture and the beginings of the independence movement during Poland's partition period. Upstairs is the geology, flora and fauna of the Tatras. There is an introduction in English which the museum can give you but for the political section it is best to ask the museum staff who speak good English as that is mostly all in Polish.

By comparison to everything surrounding it, this museum is downright quaint, unfortunately, it seems all of the money in town has gone to updating everything else and passed it by. There's some interesting items on display but without a guide it would be rather light and even taking your time, it's hard to spend more than 1/2 hour or 45 mins here.

It is a nice, interesting museum, but much left to your own imagination as everything is in Polish only. Sad, because I would have loved to be able to understand more about the clothes, the tools, the utensils etc

The museum is very interesting however you really need to speak Polish or to have a native speaker with you.

There are 4 main exhibitions: history of Zakopane and famous people of Zakopane, Typical household (with household equipment and traditional clothes), Geology of Tatra Mountains and last Flora and Fauna.

The history section is quite chaotic and hard to follow, often there are no dates and separate boards seem to have no order.

The household exhibition was my favourite however it still lacked detailed descriptions of certain objects. They would give you a name for something but wouldn't explain how it was used.

My husband spend most time in geology section as it is his hobby, and was amazed by variety of specimens.

Most kids in the museum go crazy with all the stuffed animals, which I have to say we're quite impressive.

Overall the museum is pretty old school with no interactive parts, and yet I still liked it.

This excellent museum tells the story of the exploration of the Tatra mountains and of ski-ing in the area.
It is spacious, and the exhibits are not crowded too closely. The decor of the building itself is worth a visit, with fine wood panelling and carvings in the traditional style being in abundance.
The entrance fee charged was very reasonable and we greatly enjoyed our experience visiting this lovely villa.
