The manor in Warka-Winiary is a museum, but, after all, it is also a home. For over 300 years, the manor changed owners, bustled with life, witnessed history and human experiences. Following owners and evolving fashion trends affected its architectural shape and decor. Today, after a general renovation, we can say that this home regained its former glory and manages to capture the spirit of traditional Polish hospitality by inviting anyone and everyone who wants to cross its threshold for a visit. Here, you are certain to learn not only about the fate of the exceptional man who was Casimir Pulaski, but also feel the atmosphere of an old noble house

The permanent exhibition in the manor shows Casimir Pulaski's life in Poland and America, at the same time featuring other Poles who made contributions to the social, political and cultural life in the United States. Over the years, the Museum has been gathering items connected with Tadeusz Kosciuszko, Julian Ursyn Niemcewicz, Helena Modjeska, and Ignacy Jan Paderewski.

The stylish interiors give the impression of touring the house of a wealthy Polish nobleman. We can see sets of furniture, paintings (mostly portraits and battle scenes), textiles, clocks, weapons, silver, porcelain, as well as old documents, maps and prints. Own exhibits are complemented by loans from partner museums, including the National Museum in Warsaw, The Liw Castle (Muzeum Zbrojownia na Zamku w Liwie), and the Historical Museum of the City of Krakow.

It includes rare Polish-American publications released in the U.S., books and journals on the subject, old prints, relevant newspapers and magazines, and interesting postcards.

The Museum has entered into an agreement with the Municipal Public Library in Radom, thanks to which a part of the Museum collection is going to be available via the Radom Digital Library online platform completely free of charge.

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.


Warka legends

At the Casimir Pulaski Museum in Warka, we acknowledge the importance of outdoor education. During the guided tour of the park, young students learn the mesmerizing and mysterious legends shrouding the site, which have been passed down from generation to generation by Warka residents. And we are sure that this enticing lesson will suit even the fussiest visitors! Would you like to see where the entrance to the secret tunnels under the park is hidden? Do you fancy knowing what secrets the brick chapel near the Museum hides? Are you interested to discover if the spirits of Swedish soldiers killed in the vicinity of Warka wander around the park at night? If so, you simply must visit our Museum, meet with our guide and buckle up for a wonderful adventure!

  • Museum Sessions for the Little Ones are approx. 45 minutes long and the maximum group size is 25.
