In order to ensure the safety of people staying in the Museum and property, video monitoring is carried out in the building and on the museum property.
The museum exhibition consists of two routes:
the path “With paper for two millennia” visited with the help of a story played from your own device (e.g. smartphone, iPad) or an audio guide (no additional fee), possibly with a printout of texts for individual rooms,
the “Art and Money” route, explored independently.
The time of visiting the whole is approx. 2 hours.
It is possible to start visiting the entire Museum no later than 2 hours before the museum closes. If visitors arrive at the museum later than 2 hours before the closing of the exhibitions, one of the routes will be available to them: “With paper for two millennia” or “Art and money” or participation in paper making workshops. Insufficient amount of time spent by the visitor on visiting the exhibitions does not constitute grounds for a complaint.
The number of visitors staying at the exhibitions of the Museum at the same time is limited for security reasons. Due to this, the entrance of visitors to individual exhibitions may be temporarily suspended.
The day of free access to the exhibition from May to October and during the winter holidays is Monday, and from November to April (except for the winter holidays) on Tuesday.
The free tour offer is addressed only to individual tourists and includes visiting the exhibition “With paper for two millennia” without an audio guide and without participation in the demonstration of making paper.
In order to extend the offer for visitors on the day of the free visit to include the drawing room and the “Art and Money” route, the possibility of purchasing a ticket enabling the visit to the entire museum has been introduced.
