Would you like to know the history of one of the largest pre-war industrial plants in Krakow? Would you like to learn what jack or scraper is used for, and what glass fertilizer looks like? Or are you a fan of the design dating back to the times of the Polish People’s Republic?

Krakow Glassworks invites you to visit the permanent exhibition entitled Glass in Krakow. Industry and Art. 1931-1998. Using original artefacts, archival documents and multimedia solutions, the history of the glassworks created in 1931 at 3 Lipowa Street is presented, as well as the collections from the 1970s – antique glass-making tools, nineteenth-century historical glassware and the "Krakow glass", manufactured here in the years 1969-1998. Visitors may not only get acquainted with the history of that important Krakow factory, but also broaden their knowledge on glass-making chemicals, glassware production technology or contemporary glass application (in the laboratory part).
