The Museum of Independence in Warsaw

COMPLETION DATE: 2019
LOCATION: POLAND

The Museum of Independence in Warsaw was established on 30 January 1990. Originally, it was called the Museum of the History of Polish Independence and Social Movements and it was established as results of the transformation of the Museum of the History of the Polish Revolutionary Movement and the Lenin Museum. The current name was given on 12 August 1991.

The works in the building have been ongoing since 2018 and had to be carried out in stages due to the fact that they covered the whole building – from basements to the roof and the surrounding area.

 

During the works, which lasted 21 months, we have managed, among others, to recover the rooms in the buried basements. We have dried them, removed mold from them and executed new ceilings and floors. As a result, we have removed rubble from more than half of the building. New ceilings and floors have been made in the entire building, together with staircases, which we have adapted to applicable regulations, while the old ones have undergone renovation. 

 

The facility has received completely new electrical, water and sewer, central heating and process heat installations along with ventilation and air conditioning adapted to museum facilities. We have also assembled a new stylized woodwork and refurbished its existing elements.

The works have also taken place on the facade of the building. Along with the terraces, it has undergone a thorough renovation. The area around has been redeveloped. We have planted new plants, made new sculptures and renovated the old ones adorning the garden facade.

The facility will serve not only as a museum, its administration department and management will have their seat there as well. Thanks to the works carried out by us, the facility can be reopened to visitors.

We put our heart in stone.
