General information

The Museum of Municipal Engineering was established on October 1, 1998 by the City of Krakow and received the historic halls of the oldest tramway shed as its seat.

The origin of the Museum dates back to 1975, when during the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of public transport in Krakow, the concept of creating a transport museum in Krakow emerged. The Historical Section of the Municipal Transport Company in Krakow, created in 1984 and lead at first by Jan Koźmic, has significantly contributed to organising the new museum. Efforts of its members resulted in 1985 in registration of the św. Wawrzyńca Street tramway shed architectural complex in the Krakow landmark list, as no. A-680.

The department’s collection consists of more than 146 objects showing the development of the Polish automotive industry. They include cars and motorcycles and their elements, workshop equipment, accessories and unique parts, as well as steam and combustion stationary engines.

The most valuable objects are:
– a 1935 CWS M111 Sokół 1000 motorcycle
– a 1938 MOJ 130 motorcycle
– a 1936 Polish Fiat 508 III Junak car
– a 1959 MR-300 Mikrus car
– prototype vehicles: Smyk (1957), Beskid (2 pcs from 1983 and 1984), Polonez van (1989), Osa M52a (1964)
– bike engine SM Malcherek (ca. 1930)
– F. Wichterle Steam Engine (1890)
