Visiting regulations during pandemic

Visiting regulations during pandemic

We invite you to our “In focus. Photo reportages from ITD 1960–1990” exhibition! It’s presenting almost 200 pictures of outstanding photographers who collaborated with the itd student magazine. Actually the bookstore will be open just on Sundays. We encourage you to see the open-air exhibition "Maria Piechotkowa - one hundred years", which we present in front of the  District Office Bielany (Urząd Dzielnicy Bielany). We will still function online and all events will be available on our Facebook and YouTube.

We have changed the opening hours and the visiting regulations to ensure your safety and comfort. Everyday there are technical breaks, during which we disinfect the institution. Please remember about face masks and disinfecting your hands. We would also like to ask you to leave your contact details using the forms available at the Reception desk. This will allow us to contact you in a situation that requires it.

Due to the epidemic situation and imposed restrictions:

1. Opening hours:

During maintenance breaks the exhibition and bookstore will be closed to visitors.
