One of Kraków’s most beloved and talented sons is the focus of this museum. A key figure of the Młoda Polska (Young Poland) movement, Stanisław Wyspiański was an impressively multitalented creative type who explored many branches of art. A painter, poet and playwright, he was also a designer renowned for his stained-glass designs, some of which are in the exhibition. Among his never-realised projects was Acropolis, a political, religious and cultural centre to be built on Wawel Hill. There’s a model made according to his design – an amazing mix of epochs and styles, including a Greek amphitheatre and a Roman circus.
