Museum of Poland under the Communist Regime (PL: Muzeum PRL-u) in the former Światowid cinema

The Museum of Poland under the Communist Regime (being set up) has been operating since 2013 and is co-run by the municipality of Krakow and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. It occupies the building of the old cinema theatre called Światowid (Svetovid), in the very heart of the social realist architecture of the Nowa Huta district (os. Centrum E-1).

 

The Museum is to be a meeting point for various narrations about the communist period - the political, social, moral and cultural ones, as well as space for discussion and debates about the era. It is to be interactive and built mainly on relations, testimonies of people who experienced the era, yet also on the basis of interdisciplinary studies.

 

Światowid cinema (os. Centrum E-1) was erected between 1955 and 1957, according to the design of Andrzej Uniejewski. It has 3,480 sq. m and two screening rooms. One of its greatest attractions are the shelters located in the basements.

 

The cinema was operating until 1992. Then, the building was transformed in some kind of a chaotic shopping centre. In 2006, the municipality of Krakow acquired the venue from Apollo Film company. From April 2008 to December 2012, the former cinema played host to a division of the Polish History Museum. On 7 November 2012, the Krakow’s City Council decided to bring the Museum of Poland under the Communist Regime (being set up) into existence. In October 2013, the Council signed an agreement with the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage on co-running the Museum of Poland under the Communist Regime.
