Dom Tkacza

The Weavers House is a unique


example of the 18th-century
craftsman architecture. Located in
Bielsko-Biaa, it is situated in the Old
Uptown in a log cabin with its
characteristic hay store. The
building is a museum branch
belonging to the Museum in BielskoBiaa.

The building functioned as a house


and a workshop until the beginnings
of the 20th century. The information
about its tenants is incomplete.
When in 1992 the long-lasting
renovation works finished, the
District Museum in Bielsko-Biaa
opened the exhibition to the public.
