Artefacts Return to the Castle Museum

Works of art previously thought lost to war have now returned to the Malbork Castle Museum. 

Two stained-glass window panels and a great helm returned to Malbork last Friday (4 Aug 2023), and were presented at an official donation ceremony hosted by Professor Piotr Gliński, Minister of Culture and National Heritage.

‘Culture, which is everything that we create, develop and try to preserve, is a mission we all share, but it is also a source of great satisfaction. Polish culture is about various communities coming together. Otherwise, today’s ceremony would not be taking place, and the stained-glass windows would not have returned to Malbork. We are also donating a historical object today, in the form of a piece of armour – a great helm,’ said Professor Piotr Gliński, Minister of Culture and National Heritage, during the presentation of the two stained-glass window panels depicting Moses and an ornamental design.

After the ceremony, the minister took a tour of the High Castle and the Amber Collection of the Malbork Castle Museum, which contains a unique 17th-century amber altar whose purchase was financed by the ministry.
