The Diocesan Museum

The Diocesan Museum of Rzeszow is a church institution established in 1997 by Bishop Kazimierz Gorny. The museum was officially opened on 22 September 1998 as part of the European Days of Cultural Heritage in Rzeszow. Collections are works of sacred art that are not in use anymore, but due to the age of the diocese (founded in the 1990s) most of its exhibits are located in the museums in Przemysl and Tarnow. The collection, which has now become a permanent exhibition, consists wooden sculpture monuments donated from wooden parish churches in Lubla, Sławęcin, Łężyn, Biecz or Trzciana. The exposition of the Diocesan Museum also features monuments of orthodox art. Art craftsmanship department is also a part of the exhibition. The commercial art of the second half of the 19th century is represented by two bronze altar candles, donated from the parish church in Biecz and neo-Rococon candlestick, the gift from Father Pałęga. OPENING HOURS Thursdays and Fridays: 9:00 - 13:00 (other dates possible after phone call arrangement)
