THE MUSEUM OF REV. JÓZEF JARZĘBOWSKI IN LICHEŃ STARY
2010 Licheń Stary
The museum is located in the most famous place of worship in Poland – the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Sorrows, Queen of Poland in the village of Licheń Stary. This is a place visited annually by crowds of Catholics. The devotees also visit the museum. The challenge was to create an exhibition that would be interesting and understandable for a wide range of visitors.
The Licheń museum is divided into six exhibition rooms, presenting a rich collection of Polish publications, works of art, cold steel weapons, old prints, manuscripts and patriotic memorabilia. All this is made available to the Visitors by means of modern presentation methods and multimedia systems. The following components are of particular interest:
- large-format touch screens showing scanned old prints, among other things,
- a cinema room,
- a row of display cases dynamically illuminated.
The entire exhibition is managed by means of the Crestron system. Wireless touch panels are used to control multimedia and lighting.
Almost 80 thousand people visited the Museum of Rev. Józef Jarzębowski in Licheń Stary within one year of its opening. The museum was honored by the Poviat of Konin with the title “Meritorious for the Poviat of Konin”. The award from the hands of the starost of Konin was received by Fr Krzysztof Jędrzejewski, the Superior of the Congregation of Marian Fathers in Licheń.
