The Society of Friends of Museum

Museum, in accordance with its statutory assumptions, specifically directs its activities to the local community, transferring in a variety of forms the accumulated knowledge about Wieliczka's past. Therefore, in December 1993, at the initiative of the Museum, the Society of Friends of the Krakow Saltworks Museum was established, bringing together all those interested in the history of the city, research conducted by the museum's academic staff and current cultural events. Magdalena Waśniowska-Nowak is the president of the Society.

Currently, the Society has over 100 members, for whom monthly meetings are organized (on the penultimate Wednesdays of the month) in the Wieliczka Saltworks Castle and integration and sightseeing tours.
