HISTORY HALL TAKES THE VISITOR TO THE BEGINNING OF THE PREVIOUS CENTURY TO LET YOU WITNESS THE BIRTH OF THE CONSTRUCTION REVOLUTION, AN ERA OF TECHNOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL CHANGE

History Hall takes the visitor to the beginning of the previous century to let you witness the birth of the construction revolution, an era of technological and social change. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries Wrocław aspired to be the most important economic center of Silesia. With the vision of Max Berg and Hans Poelzig, it became a landmark agglomeration of the region. The exposition presents the figures of architects and constructors who have shaped the city we now know and it shows major events in the history of the 20th-century Wrocław. It describes also the scale of the Centennial Hall’s design and the originality and innovativeness of its character at the time of its construction. n.
