The Center occupies one room. The volunteers are friendly and accommodating. The admission is free, and there is a small gift shop. It was enjoyable to learn about the history of the Polish people.

This museum is small, free, air conditioned (many surrounding sights are not), and has items from a variety of influential Polish people, including Copernicus, Curie, St. John Paul II, Pulaski, etc. Other pieces show life in Poland and Poland in World War II.

You can make it through this free museum in a half hour. It is really only one large room, but has some nice Polish things for sale and has some interesting displays. Nothing amazing but nice for free.

Nice little museum. My husband is 1/4 Polish so he and the kids enjoyed looking at some of the exhibits. Takes about 10-15 minutes.
