JAPANESE CULTURE IN POLAND

The Manggha Museum is the only state institution popularizing Japanese culture in Poland, combining museum work with projects characteristic of a modern cultural institution. In addition to high artistic rank, attractive forms of public display are the primary criteria in the museum’s programming. Due to evident cultural differences, the manner of communicating specialised knowledge becomes an issue of key importance. The methods developed over the years at the Manggha Museum enable them to devise insightful and attractive presentations of phenomena relating to historical and modern-day Japan alike.

The venue also plays host to numerous events, conferences and workshops. The venue is home to Café Manggha, an unusual museum café, which sets trends for other places of this type in Poland. Open to museum visitors and the wide public alike, it is appreciated by people from out of town and well-liked by the locals for its pleasurable atmosphere and simple, tasty food.

In reference to its activities and events, the Manggha Museum is an active publisher. The Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology, created on the initiative of Andrzej Wajda and opened in 1994 as the Manggha Centre of Japanese Art and Technology, was a branch of the National Museum in Krakow for ten years, and at the same time the venue of the proactive activities of the Andrzej Wajda and Krystyna Zachwatowicz Kyoto–Krakow Foundation.
