Time travel through Solothurn: Baroque splendour on old postcards

On Saturday 14 October, the opening of the exhibition "Solothurn on old postcards" took place at the Solothurn Central Library. The Kościuszko Museum, in collaboration with the Central Library of Solothurn, organised an exhibition showing the most important buildings and squares of this beautiful baroque city. The exhibition shows the city from the Kościuszko period.

We can travel back to the era and atmosphere of times gone by and imagine Kościuszko moving through the picturesque streets on foot or on his horse "Dobry".

The form of the panel exhibition is intended to encourage visitors to discover the unknown and to inform them about the integration and mutual cooperation in the field of culture that is developing in Europe and the world.
The exhibition was funded by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland as part of its support for museums, archives and libraries outside the country in 2023.
