The Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum, can boast of its tremendous collection of exhibits, reaching almost 80 thousands. However, the nucleus of it, is the collection established in the turn of the 20th century by the museum’s founder, Mr Seweryn Udziela. In his assembly, deriving mainly from the Eastern Galicia, he gathered about 2000 items, dated mainly at the end 19th and the first half of 20th century.

However, there was also place for older objects, like the 17th century fragments of iconostases or the 18th century Tibetan collection. Some of the attraction’s exhibits (i.e. archival manuscripts, drawings, photographs or glass plates) are of particular, inestimable value. The same situation is with the library collections, comprising over 30 thousand volumes.
