What we do

Everything we do is connected to Poznań
Poznan Heritage Centre is a municipal cultural institution which tells the story of Poznań and its heritage. At the heart of our work lies the conviction that it is impossible to tell the story of the city in just one way. We have to constantly retell it in an engaging and accessible way, using various methods and forms.

The work of Poznan Heritage Centre focuses on five main areas:

  • EXHIBITIONS: main and temporary exhibitions, cooperation with artists and creators,
  • EDUCATION: educational programmes for all age groups, education for families, workshops for schools, teacher support, education for foreigners, outdoor games, training, seminars, publications,
  • TOURISM: guiding, materials for tourists based on heritage interpretation, tourist and cultural events,
  • RESEARCH: conferences, seminars, popular science and scientific publications, cooperation with institutions from the fields of science and heritage,
  • OUTREACH AND WORKING WITH COMMUNITIES: community archive, multimedia library, publications and exhibitions, working with local communities.

When we present the city’s heritage we do not focus solely on its history, but also on art, culture and nature. We look for inspiration in the past and explain it in an accessible way to contemporary visitors. In our work we are constantly searching for appropriate ways to interpret, present and promote heritage.

PHC’s projects and development paths are examined by the Programme Board. Among its members are scientist, experts and representatives of social and local communities, who support us with their knowledge, expertise and social engagement.
