Polish Flowers

The new family-friendly exhibition at the National Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw is a journey through Polish observances, full of riddles and mysteries, where flowers take the lead and guide viewers through the seasons and everlasting cycle of life. In seven colorful exhibition rooms, representing different times of the year and different life stages of both people and nature, kids and grown-ups can experience the exhibits with all their senses. Visitors can try on a wedding dress here, swing on linen and hemp ropes, try the artistic techniques of coloring with flowers, listen to the traditional songs, create the “flowery” map of Poland and even learn about the structure of the flower itself. The interactive experience combines perspectives from various fields, such as ethnography, cultural anthropology, botany and natural science. Why and how do we use flowers? How do we create and consume our culture and what role does nature play in the process? Children and parents – all are welcome to explore. 

The “Polish Flowers” exhibition marks 135 years of the National Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw and 10 years of Museum’s activities for the youngest audience. It is available in 3 languages – Polish, English and Ukrainian, and accompanied by a video guide in Polish sign language, scripts and alternative descriptions for multimedia, audio description and subtitled films. Creators prepared the exhibition taking into account the needs of persons with autism spectrum disorder. “Polish Flowers” is available for visitors until November 2025.
