Family Home of John Paul II

Museum in Wadowice

The home where Karol Wojtyła was born 18 May 1920 and spent his childhood is now a popular museum, fitted out as a replica of how the rooms once looked. The Wojtyła family lived in this small first-floor apartment, with just two rooms and a kitchen, from 1919 to 1938. Entry is by guided tour, with English-speaking guides available. Order tickets by phone or online, or buy them at a special ticketing office at Plac Jana Pawła II 5.
