This museum is small, free, air conditioned (many surrounding sights are not), and has items from a variety of influential Polish people, including Copernicus, Curie, St. John Paul II, Pulaski, etc. Other pieces show life in Poland and Poland in World War II.

Nice little museum. My husband is 1/4 Polish so he and the kids enjoyed looking at some of the exhibits. Takes about 10-15 minutes.

While in Philly we stopped by the Polish American Cultural Center Museum great to see the historical past of the Polish ancestors of my wife.. and trace back some of the history. The historians will like it and Polish folks as well..

This is a very small museum. I found the info about the Polish involvement during world war 2 to be very interesting and informative. You can do the entire exhibit in 10 minutes.
