with a guide

The exhibition is a narrative story about the life of Karol Wojtyla, and it is worth having someone to tell you this story. We recommend using a qualified museum guide. This form will allow you to adjust the level of knowledge transmitted to the age and expectations of the group. 

Museum guided tours are held at scheduled times in groups of up to 30 people. In the case of larger groups, they are divided. At the entrance you receive a tour-guide device, so that the group will hear the guide all the time. The tour takes about 60 - 70 minutes and is in Polish language.

Our tips!

  1. Book a tour date in advance

    We open reservations for each month three months in advance. For example, we open the reservation for May on the first working day of March, starting at 9:00 am.

    For organized groups, it is possible to pre-booking. Book as many seats as you need, the reservation must be confirmed two weeks before the group's arrival - the final number of tickets and their type. Payment for the reservation can be made by quick online transfer or by proforma invoice.

  2. Be here a few minutes before visiting

    Be ready to visit the Museum about 10 minutes earlier. This will save stress for the group, and there will also be time to pick up tickets from the ticket offices or pick up the tour equipment. Remember that each group member should have their own ticket. Depending on the form of purchase, you will receive them in printable form or you will be asked to pick up your tickets at the ticket offices.

    Please note that admission to the Museum takes place at the time designated on the ticket!
  3. Book enough time to visit the museum

    About 1.5 hours should be planned for a group visit. The tour itself takes 60 to 70 minutes, plus time for the checkroom and restroom.

    Remember, too, that getting from the parking lot also takes time. The nearest parking lot for coaches is on Slowackiego Street (about 350 meters).

    For information on bus parking, visit the Tourist Information website
  4. Inform us if there is a person with a disability in the group who needs support.

    Did you know that there is a person at the Museum who makes our Museum open to the needs of people with disabilities? Let us know if there is such a person in your group and he or she requires support in visiting. The accessibility coordinator is at your service.

    Our accessibility coordinator is Anna Czajkowska - Salapat
