The building of the museum is already making a huge impression – a fantastic, slightly rough structure that is full of symbolic Polish Jewish historical meaning. Inside the museum you will find a special exhibition showing centuries of Jewish presence on Polish land – its key element is a full size replica of a synagogue in Gwoździec. It was designed by Finnish architect Rainer Mahlamäki, whose remarkable, visionary design was awarded the Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Award, the Eurobuild Award in the 2013 POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews was awarded the prestigious European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) 2016. POLIN Conference Centre is part of POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews and consists of an auditorium, conference rooms, workshop rooms, a foyer that can serve as exhibition space, and the main hall – an ideal place for organising banquets. It is equipped with an elaborate audio system and professional stage lighting, making it possible to hold conferences, film screenings and concerts there.
