The Museum of the History of Polish Jews opened its doors to the public in April 2013. It currently functions as a cultural and educational center with a rich cultural program, including temporary exhibitions, films, debates, workshops, performances, concerts, lectures and much more. Within the programme of artistic residencies, the Museum hosts Polish and foreign artists whose practice deals with the themes of Jewish heritage and multiculturalism. During three-week residencies, artists develop their own ideas and run educational workshop for youth and adults. The resulting works are displayed in the Museum seat and other spaces.
