Long Night of Museums at the museums of UWr

Long Night of Museums 2022 in Wrocław start already on 14 May 2022. Long Night of Museums has been held in Poland since 2003. Every year during this cultural event thousands of people can visit cultural institutions and get to know them in a completely different way than usual. At night, in a different, slightly more mysterious atmosphere, taking part in additional attractions, socialising and usually in a larger group – because Long Night of Museums is a very popular event! University museums also take part in Long Night of Museums in Wrocław. Free entry! You are welcome!

The Museum of the University of Wrocław

The Museum of the University of Wrocław will open to visitors the Aula Leopoldina, which has been closed for the past two years due to ongoing conservation work.

Dominating the panorama of the Old Town, the main building of the University of Wrocław – Collegium Maximum is today a landmark of Wrocław and one of its most valuable monuments, and the main academic hall – Aula Leopoldina is one of the best preserved secular Baroque interiors in Silesia. Its decoration – created between 1731 and 1732 – is one of the most beautiful not only in Silesia, but in all of Central Europe.

Since 2008, the University of Wrocław has undertaken a comprehensive, thorough conservation effort, which has become one of the most interesting conservation challenges of the early 21st century. The final stage of this work was the conservation of the auditorium’s main plafond. This work was completed in March. The opening and presentation of the Aula Leopoldina will be complemented by an exhibition presenting the most interesting elements connected with the conservation and restoration work.

Schedule:

  • starting from 18:00, groups of 50 people will be admitted every half hour
