Muzeum Izba Polska
  • A bit of historyIn the years 1893 – 1912, Polish seasonal workers were coming to Denmark, mostly from Galicia, which was then the north-western part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and to a lesser extent from Prussia and Russia (from partitioned Poland under Prussian and Russian rule).
  • Polish House in MariboFriday the 13th of May was a very sad day in the history of Polish Association in Maribo. The 90th anniversary of the association was celebrated. But at the same time it was that day, where the association followed the decision that was ruled at the general meeting on the 18th of March, which said the association was to be closed.
  • Beet girls in SakskøbingAround year 1900 a large group of Polish immigrants - mostly young women - came to Denmark to work here. For many of these persons concerned they worked on the islands of Lolland and Falster in the fields of sugar beets, and one started to call them “roepiger”, which means “beet girls”.

Museum The Polish Barrack is ready for the summer season. We open July 1st and stay open tentatively until the end of August. The museum is open every day, except Mondays, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The preseason with many Corona virus canceled group visits has been expensive for the museum. We are missing revenue for around DKK 30,000, and are not covered by the state aid packages. Therefore, we hope that many locals and guests from outside will visit us this summer.
