The Municipal Museum in Żory is awarded in many prestigious competitions.
We’re happy about our museum vision appreciation. We report our ideas to contest on regional and polish nationwide level.
Of course – every award is important, but for a museologist, the most important one is SYBILLA – “museum Oscar” handed by Minister of Culture and National Heritage. We’re proud that this award has been given to us. GRAND PRIX towards us…
There’s a role, which can’t be left unmentioned; a role, which, in case of every award, falls to our main graphic designer and artist – Anna Flaga. Due to her, our projects were visually unique, considered and polished.
We’re happy the most of these small awards, passed to us by our Guests, who come back and claim that there is a thing to come back for.
