The Tatra Museum has a charming nineteenth century explorer air, chock-full of stuffed furry fellows, not to mention a good smattering of our feathered friends. But if you're intrigued by folk art there's plenty to see here. There are some classic wooden interiors and local highlanders costumes. And fans of the distinctive paintings on glass will find some old treasures too. The collections are displayed in a fine building that was opened in 1922 following the designs of local legend Stanislaw Witkiewicz.

great place !
A wonderful place. I just love the folklore style, and its influence on Polish culture.
Lovely Place :))
Go Poland :**
At the end of August I visited Zakopane.It is a very beautiful resort and Tatra Museum was for me a surprise because in this museum I could see a lot of objects from Tatra region.
I visited this lovely museum 7/09. My ancestor Father Jozef Stolarczyk is pictured therein. He was a remarkable man who greatly influenced the development of the area. A visit to the little wooden church, built by him, was remarkable. I hope to return to this area again and stay longer to enjoy the history and beauty

I love stuffed animals so this made me want to go to the musuem
