In December 2020, the Association of University Museums published the catalog “Treasure Houses of Polish Academic Heritage”.

The catalog was part of the “Treasures of the Polish University Heritage” project, which also included the creation of the English-language Association of Univeristy Museums website. Apart from the paper version, the catalog is available free of charge at: “Treasures of the Polish University Heritage”.

 The project was co-financed by the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sport from the Culture Promotion Fund.


In 2020 The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage has granted additional funding as part of the Support for Museal activity program. The project submitted by the Association of University Museums made it to the top of this list with the greatest number of points. Additional funding of 141,500 PLN was distributed. The “TREASURES OF THE POLISH UNIVERSITY HERITAGE” project concerns the design and publishing of an English language catalog detailing the most valuable specimens of the 102 museum facilities affiliated with institutions of higher learning. We extend our thanks to all of our members for their engagement and help. This success must be credited to all AUM members involved in the promotion of academic heritage in Poland. The project concludes on December 31st of 2020.
