Tarnów Regional Museum

Museum in Tarnów

Two 16th-century townhouses on the central square comprise the main regional museum, largely used for rotating exhibitions. The main part of the small permanent exhibition is the ongoing restoration work of a giant panorama painting of the 1849 Battle of Sibiu in which local hero General Józef Bem (1791–1850) led a Hungarian insurrection against the combined forces of Austria and tsarist Russia. Renovations are due for completion at the end of 2019.
