Temporary exhibitions in 2022
Current topics, challenges of the future and restoring history. This is what we chose to plan for our temporary exhibitions in 2022. They will be an opportunity to get to know the history of the city.
At the Museum of Warsaw and our branches we will tell the story of rivers of Warsaw, non-existent guild of female carpenters and joiners, stories of a fashion designer Grażyna Hase and photographer Celina Osiecka, and more.

Let Them Flow! The Other Rivers of Warsaw
The Wola Museum of Warsaw, 20 January – 29 May
Drna, Sadurka, Żurawka, Pólkówka, Bełcząca, Brodnia. These are the names of merely a few rivers that once used to meander across Warsaw. Some don’t exist anymore, some are still flowing underground. Why did they disappear?
Nowadays, Vistula is regarded as the Warsaw river. The city’s hydrographic system, however, was – and partially still is – much more elaborate than that. Let Them Flow! The Other Rivers of Warsaw exhibition tells the story of the city’s many rivers. It is presenting old plans, maps, graphic art and photographs.
The exhibition aims to fill in the gap—in the map of Warsaw and in human memory. It also aims to rediscover this natural, life-sustaining resource, the treasure of the area we inhabit. More information.
Olga Micińska: The Guild
Museum of Warsaw, Rynek 30 Gallery, 3 March – 28 August
The Guild exhibition tells the story of a still non-existent guild of female carpenters and joiners. Women who work with wood. According to the tradition of German travelling guilds, which is still alive today, an apprentice, having completed his training, would set off on a journey, travelling from one commission to another.
Olga Micińska turned the space of the Rynek 30 Gallery into a makeshift stop along the way of the imaginary ”guild” members. More information.
