Cartography Room

Under the authentic Renaissance ceiling relocated from the house at Szpitalna 4 Street, visitors can see a collection related to the history of cartography. The valuable drawing instruments mostly date to the 18th and 19th centuries, but there is also a printing block with a celestial map made in Kraków before 1585 according to Albrecht Dürer’s design, as well as a replica of the oldest terrestrial globe made by Martin Behaim in 1492 (the original globe is located in Nuremberg).

The stained-glass window in this room came from the Church of Our Lady in Kraków (ca. 1400).
