The building of the museum makes a huge impression right at the first glance – the fantastic, slightly rough structure that is full of symbolic, Polish-Jewish historical meaning set in a tranquil neighborhood is truly eye-catching. Inside the museum, you will find a unique exhibition showcasing centuries of Jewish presence on Polish land whose key element is a life-size replica of a synagogue in Gwoździec. It was designed by Finnish architect Rainer Mahlamäki. His remarkable, visionary design earned the Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Award and the Eurobuild Award. In 2013 POLIN was given the prestigious European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) 2016. POLIN Conference Centre consists of an auditorium, conference rooms, workshop rooms, a foyer that can serve as exhibition space, and the main hall – an ideal place for organizing banquets. It is equipped with an elaborate audio system and professional stage lighting. The rich technical background facilitates holding top-notch conferences, film screenings, and concerts.
