Beneath its dome you'll find the one-of-a-kind museum housing a permanent exhibition with fourteen audiovisual zones, large-format projections and art.
Inside, you'll learn over 100 years of Polish history through the life and teachings of two national heroes - from the birth of Stefan Wyszyński in 1901 to the death of John Paul II in 2005. Each thematic zone presents a unique and scenographic space that will help visitors enter the atmosphere of years gone by.
Art lovers will enjoy the paintings by Aldona Mickiewicz that illustrating when Karol Wojtyła was elected Pope, a mural by Piotr Młodożeniec and The Ten Commandments Paintings series by avant-garde artist Stefan Gierowski.
Historian aficionados can gaze upon unique objects including a bejeweled dress crafted from precious stones mounted on a Jasna Góra painting, a leather canopy used by the primate in the Warsaw cathedral, and a field altar from WWII.
Throughout the exhibition you will find a wealth of quotes from the two featured heroes in both written and audio form, as well as archival photographs, documents and information.
