The Craft Museum in Krosno has its seat in the building which, in the years 1901-1938, housed the First National Factory of Tower Clocks, owned and run by Michał Mięsowicz.
The permanent exhibition in the museum, entitled “The History of the South-Eastern Poland’s Craft” is composed of craft and trade-related documents dating from the period of the 18th to 20th centuries and the 19th- and 20th-century craft products and tools, especially representing Krosno and its environs. The display is arranged in 6 rooms in the form of small workshops presenting: shoemaking, leather craft / saddlery, carpentry and joinery, woodcarving, cooperage, foundry, watch-making, metalwork and smithery, bee-keeping, millinery and fashion-related businesses, tailoring, sewing and dressmaking, weaving, hairdressing and food-processing trades. The cosy atmosphere of the small exhibition and the possibility to have a direct contact with the exhibit items and showpieces provide unforgettable impressions.

The Museum’s educational offer is prepared on the basis of the permanent exhibition, current temporary exhibitions and the issues connected with the history of the town and the region. It is an interesting proposal of supplementing the regular educational process carried out at schools, additionally enriched with competitions and quizzes for pupils and students.
The Museum organizes various cultural and community events, including “Z krosna do Krosna”* International Biennial Exhibition of Artistic Linen Tapestries – a prestigious artistic tapestry event and All-Poland Biennial Exhibition of Artistic Photographs: “Miasto i Ludzie” (The Town and the People).
* “z krosna do Krosna” is a pun which means: “from a loom to Krosno”, as “krosno” means a “loom” in Polish)
