Discover the Museum
During your visit to the Casimir Pulaski Museum in Warka, we will show you around the historic manor, looking to answer the question: What constitutes a museum? And do not worry, we guarantee that we are going to find the answer together! Along the way, we learn words typically used by museum staff and see a selection of the most fascinating exhibits on display. The lesson is also a fun way for the little ones to set foot in a museum for the first time in their lives.
Kazimierz or Casimir?
We come together to meet Casimir Pulaski, born Kazimierz Pułaski, by listening to a legend shrouding the brave soldier. Was he a cavalryman or a cavalier? Or maybe both? What is more, we strive to respond to the most important question: Why do we continue to look back on the life of an individual who passed away such a long time ago?
What was life in the olden days like?
Is there something like a 700-year-old tracksuit? It is safe to presume that people in the olden days wore different attire, isn’t it? During this guided tour to the Casimir Pulaski Museum in Warka, young students learn about the ways in which people used to live, what they had to eat, what they wore, what they did for a living, what they considered normal, what kind of music they listened to, and how they traveled. These are merely some of the themes that our educators help you explore. We will even see objects which people made a long, long time ago... and possibly confirm that the young visitors are able to correctly identify them.
