The Polish Heritage Trust Museum is a GLAM (Gallery Library Archive Museum) with three gallery spaces on two levels. Curated exhibits of national and international significance are nestled amongst an eclectic mix of personal objects donated by the community.
Visitors can feast their eyes on a wide variety of artisan crafts, tapestries and ceramics. Eye-catching folk costumes, lacework and pottery are complemented by crystal ware, amber jewellery and inlay woodwork.
Also experience stunning original artworks by artist Lindy Fisher, who depicts the story of Polish children forcibly deported to the Soviet Union in World War 2, as told in the award-winning children’s book “Stefania’s Dancing Slippers” authored by Jennifer Beck.
The visual archive includes selections from these wartime journeys, as well as contemporary Poland and places of interest.
This is the only museum of its type in the Pacific.
