Formerly named the Wyspiański Museum, the Szołayski House exhibits paintings, models, plans, and designscreated by Stanisƚaw Wyspiański, 19th-century Art Nouveau artist, architect, playwright and poet. Self-portraits abound, plus studies of Wyspiański's Modernist friends, including Józef Mehoffer in his studio. Theater sets and translated versions of Wyspiański’s play "The Wedding" illustrate his literary output—most find themselves overwhelmed at the range of work. Pride of place goes to a model of his revamped Wawel, "Acropolis". Rooms look out onto an ivy-clad courtyard, decorated with a house-sized copy of one of Wyspiański's friezes.
