“Legends of Lower Silesia”, prepared by Google Arts & Culture in collaboration with over twenty institutions of culture in Lower Silesia and the UNESCO, is the first Polish Google collection dedicated entirely to our region.

The collection includes, among others, the most beautiful exhibits in the National Museum in Wrocław. Moreover, thanks to Google Street View, it is possible to take virtual walks in the Museum interiors showcasing the MNWr collection of European art, as well as the permanent exhibitions in the Ethnographic Museum. There are also ready presentations dedicated to curiosities shown in “Stories”, dedicated to selected paintings from the Museum’s collection.

Now internauts from all over the world can embark on a virtual journey discovering the most attractive treasures in the National Museum in Wrocław and in Lower Silesia!
