Maria Grzegorzewska was an educator who introduced a special programme in Poland which addressed the needs of disabled children and provided training programmes for teachers. The museum consists of two rooms. The first contains memorabilia connected to Maria Grzegorzewska (manuscripts and items found in her room at the time of her death in 1967, including paintings, prints, books, a typewriter, state decorations, cabinets and various home furnishings). The second room presents the most important events in the history of the university from 1922 until today. There are photographs of the buildings which housed the school, then the Higher Specialist Teacher Training School which
later became the Academy of Special Education, as well as a calendar of events and reproductions of photographs of the university staff. At the museum you can listen to a recording of a radio interview with Maria Grzegorzewska, as well as view a film in which she participated.
