Józef Mehoffer House


The 'Young Poland' artist lived in this stately home from 1932 until his death in 1946. The museum preserves the elegant interiors, with many original furnishings and artwork. Look out for work by the artist, including stained-glass windows and portraits of his wife. Be sure not to miss the lovely garden.
