Specialty Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
The Weaver’s House is a unique example of the 18th-century craftsman architecture. Located in Bielsko-Biała, it is situated in the Old Uptown in a log cabin with its characteristic hay store. The building is a museum branch belonging to the Museum in Bielsko-Biała.
The building functioned as a house and a workshop until the beginnings of the 20th century. The information about its tenants is incomplete. In the second half of the 18th century it certainly was the Bartke family’s and in the 19th century the Bathelts’. From 1873 the owner of the building was Carl Nowak and after his death - Marie, the widow. At the beginning of the 20th century it belonged to the local shoemaker, Antoni Polończyk After the World War II the building became a tenement house until Antoni’s son, Wiktor Polończyk, donated it to the Polish State in 1974 in order to establish a museum there. When in 1992 the long-lasting renovation works finished, the District Museum in Bielsko-Biała opened the exhibition to the public.

  • Two floors - walk-up. Parking could be a problem as it's on a side street. No one speaks English but it's not necessary.  more »
  • Piękne eksponaty i odwzorowanie jak żyli tkacze. Bardzo dużo pokazanych ciekawych stroi. Można na krótkich filmikach obejrzeć jak np. ubierały się kobiety, ile warstw na siebie zakładały. Polecam
