The Main Building

The Main Building - the seat of the District Museum in Nowy Sącz since 2018 in the historic building of the former Austro-Hungarian Bank, built in 1912 according to the design of the Krakow architect Teodor Hoffmann (born 1874, died 1959), the creator of many main houses and public buildings . After a thorough renovation and modernization in 2017, the representative character of the staircase and the main hall on the top floor were emphasized. A representative room intended for changing exhibitions, meetings and concerts separates the narrative permanent historical exhibition about the history of Nowy Sącz in the years 1867-1945 (times of Galician autonomy, wars and the interwar period) from the permanent exhibition showing the studio with paintings by the famous Nowy Sącz painter Bolesław Barbacki. There is also an education room on this floor. The entire zone is also accessible by a lift for people in wheelchairs. The lower storey is occupied by studios and offices, and the lowest one is occupied by a reception and cash register room and exhibit storage.
