Museum of Cistercian Spirituality and Culture with the Library in the Cistercian Abbey in Mogiła

The theme of the exhibition presented at the Museum is the spirituality and culture of the Cistercian Order, delivered through the prism of the material contribution made to the development of Europe and its intangible heritage. The exhibition shows the origin of the Cistercians both in the broad context of the history of the entire Order and in the local dimension, concerning the history of the Mogiła abbey.

In the Museum, you can see the most valuable masterpiece of art from the Mogiła abbey’s collections and the most valuable objects from the collection of books of the monastery library. The undoubted attractions are architectural models of Cistercian buildings - some multimedia ones. The exhibition is partly multimedia in nature.

We invite both individual guests and organized groups to the Museum.
