Gathering collections is the basic task of every museum institution. They are of fundamental importance for museums — they condition their existence and distinguish them from any other cultural institution. Museums proudly present their acquisitions, treating them as real treasures.
EVERY EXHIBIT HAS AN UNUSUAL HISTORY
Behind each, even inconspicuous item that is in the collection of the Sybir Memorial Museum, there is a great history. Each of them tells a story about its owners, the dramas, the goodbyes, the longing and the pain accompanying the loss of loved ones. There are also memories of beautiful moments, before the outbreak of the war…
The Sybir Memorial Museum gathers collections documenting the fate of Polish citizens exiled and deported to Sybir and the settlement of Poles in Russia and the USSR.
MEMORABILIA FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
Memorabilia that drift into the museum, will not be stored only in the warehouses. We want to show them at the permanent exhibition and temporary exhibitions, use them in educational and cultural activities, present them in the museum’s publications and make them available in the online catalog. All of this to serve the present and future generations.
