The Main Building is the seat of the Regional Museum in Nowy Sącz. It was erected in 1912 for the Austrian-Hungarian Bank. The edifice was designed by a Kraków-based architect  Teodor Hoffmann (1874-1959), who created numerous residential and public use buildings. His works include, e.g., the edifice of the National Bank of Poland and Ursulines’  Junior-High School in Kraków. In 2017, the historical building underwent a comprehensive refurbishment and modernisation, which adapted its interiors to museum needs. Its representative nature is emphasised by a vestibule with ceremonial stairs and the main columned hall at the top floor, where big temporary exhibitions, as well as meetings and concerts take place. In the adjacent, smaller rooms, there is a permanent historical exhibition telling the history of the city during the period from Galicia Autonomy until the end of World War II (1867-1945). Visitors have access to descriptions, photographs, films, as well as self-service, interactive information points with touchscreens. A separate exhibition is devoted to the eminent portrait painter Bolesław Barbacki (1891-1941), who was born in Nowy Sącz. There are a dozen or so of his best paintings and artist’s memorabilia on display. The top floor is occupied by storerooms of exhibits which  are made available to visitors. The Main Building is user-friendly for the disabled.
