The memory of past generations

Many materials found in Złoty Stok are kept in this Chamber, which is still growing in memory of the past generations and the small homeland of Złoty Stok. You can find here a collection of old books and city guides that make up the history of this amazing town.

True Stories

Many of the exhibits in the Chambers were donated by residents of the Złoty Stok area. These are real gems that write their own history in the Museum. Additionally, we will also find historical plaques with photos and text, devoted to various objects in the city, which will bring us closer to the beginning of Złoty Stok.

The genesis of the Museum

Save the historical heritage of Złoty Stok

On November 22, 2013, in the building of the forepassed mining hall at ul. Złota, the ceremonial opening of the Chamber of Mining and History of Złoty Stok held.
This chamber was established thanks to private funds. It was created by Elżbieta Szumska in collaboration with Piotr Romanowski to save the historical heritage of Złoty Stok. The greater part of the museum is made up of exhibits belonging to the collections of its authors, but also many historical souvenirs were donated by the inhabitants who joined this beautiful initiative. As a result, after many years, the museum was established in Złoty Stok, which is frequented not only by residents, but also by visitors from Poland and abroad.
