History

Prudnicko region museum, a cultural institution of Prudnik town, was established in 1959 as a department of Opole Sileasian Museum. Since 1968, the museum is independent. The museum headquarters are defensive bastions from the 15th century and buildings neighbouring with medieval ramparts.

In the past, there used to be an armory, a jail, a water tower and also a gestapo jail during the occupation.  Archeological, historical, artistic and ethnographical collections present a material culture and a difficult history of Prudnik region inhabitants. Between 2001-2003, the building was reconstructed with a financial support by Opole Region fund and Prudnik town. A former third wing and courtyard covered with a glassed roof were also renovated, which enabled to organize cultural and social events. Since 2010, the museum is owned by one department and it also makes the lookout tower accessible. Prudnicko region museum consists of the following parts: The armory (headquarters), the weaving tradition center (department) and the Vok tower.
