Open Day of the Castle Museum Library

Time for the Library!

Did you know that the Library of the Malbork Castle Museum has existed since 1961, which means that it has been operating for 62 years!!!

Is it long or short? It is of course relative . Assuming that we do not age, but only gain experience, it seems to us that we do not succumb to the pressure of time. It is quite the opposite. During its functioning, the castle library underwent many changes. But it has always been a friendly place for museum employees, scientists, students, and history enthusiasts or simply seekers of knowledge.

This year is special in some ways. It is the last year in the current location. This is related to the huge undertaking of the Castle Museum, and more precisely to the project “Reconstruction of historic farm buildings in the Oustskirts of the Malbork Castle, including their adaptation to cultural and educational functions”, implemented under the Culture Program of the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area, Action 1 Improvement of cultural heritage management .

We will keep you updated on any changes. However, before that happens, today we invite you to the Open Day of the Library, which will take place on May 11 this year. from 10.00 to 18.00. It will be the last chance to get acquainted with the history and activities of the library in its current form and place.

1. Film screening: In the footsteps of books and libraries at the Malbork Castle

2. A display of the most valuable items from the library’s collection

4. Art workshops: design a bookmark, coloring books for the youngest
