Regional Museum in Rzeszów | Regional Museum in Rzeszów |
The Museum is located in a former monastery building of the Piarist convent.

From 1954 the Regional Museum is located in a former Piarist monastery building erected in the mid-1600s. The facade of the edifice, dating from the late 17th/early 18th century, was designed by a renowned architect, Tylman von Gameren. The unique atmosphere of the place is partly created by Baroque polychrome decorations along the ground-floor arcade corridor and in the refectory. Established in the 1930s, the museum holds over 240,000 exhibits in such sections as Archeology, Art and History.
