Museum of Bourgeois Art
ul. Rynek Ratusz 1
50-106 Wrocław
27 m from city centre

The museum specializes in collecting, preparing and presenting objects connected with Wroclaw craft workshops and artists ranging from the distant past to contemporary days. It is located in the most important building of Wroclaw – the Old Town Hall. The Town Hall itself, with its beautifully preserved interior decorations, can be considered to be the Museum’s biggest exhibit. One of its interiors is the Great Hall. With the area of over 650 m2, it is considered one of the biggest halls of this type in Gothic town halls of Europe. Apart from the Great Hall, in a former chapel, now called the Prince Hall, there is an exhibition of silverware made at workshops of the greatest goldsmiths of Wroclaw in the period between the 17th and 19th century. In the Chamber of the Senior of the Council, you can admire a collective portrait of councilors and assessors by Georg Scholz jr. from 1668. The rooms on the ground floor and in the northern extension of the Town Hall are also noteworthy. In particular, there is a richly decorated Council Hall and a little more modestly decorated Chancellary of the Council. In the oldest part of the Town Hall – the Bourgeois Hall you can admire the Gallery of Famous Inhabitants of Wroclaw.
