Highlight of my week in Chicago. All Poles should make the pilgrimage and learn some more of their history. Excellent Polish library next door, and the museum is even better. Thinking of going back again, even if just to see the paintings by Tadeusz Kościuszko. Beautiful Polish Church close by, go see that too.

When you speak to the staff, they are friendly and full of helpful information. They helped me translate some notes from my great grandmother’s photos and I couldn’t be more thankful! The Paderewski room was my favorite - very well done and informative. The collection is interesting and the gift shop is great.

Being in a union building there is a definite history here. Lots of information on the creation of the Polish community in Chicago. How this community in turn worked to free Poland during WWI. There were great examples of Polish Paintings, Religious Art and military artifacts. I really enjoyed my time here.

Had meant to visit this museum for years. Did not expect a docent tour, but was happy that Bascia was generous and giving with her first-hand knowledge of Poland and its culture. I learned a lot and walked away hungry for more of my Polish history. I plan to return to visit the library. The museum has historical artifacts as well as a small, but beautiful, art collection.

Amazing collection of artwork, sculpture, books and more. They also have a polish library and a gift shop. And they have their own parking lot.
