Stained Glass from Braniewo – exhibition

Frombork Museum is one of the few museum institutions in Poland that has and exhibits historic stained glass windows, both sacred and secular, at permanent and temporary exhibitions. The jubilee exhibition related to the 70th anniversary of the Nicolaus Copernicus Museum in Frombork creates a unique opportunity to see this interesting part of the museum’s collection.

The exhibition is presented in the form of an illuminated screen, imitating window wings, with stained glass. These stained glass windows come from the former Poviat Eldership building in Braniewo. The eldership was located there in 1907-1945. Currently there is the City Hall.
The glass panels present views of Frombork, Orneta and Pieniężno. Destroyed during the Second World War and during the fire of the 1980s, they were luckily preserved and went to the museum.
