Welcome to the »Görlitzer Sammlungen für Geschichte und Kultur« (Görlitz collections for history and culture), which are located right in the heart of our european city of Görlitz-Zgorzelec!
The Görlitzer Sammlungen, consisting of the Cultural History Museum and the »Oberlausitzische Bibliothek der Wissenschaften« (Upper Lusatia Library of Science), are housed in a total of six buildings.
They are the city's largest cultural complex and an important institution for science, education and the history of science, archaeology, art and cultural history between Dresden, Wroclaw and Prague. Its origin goes far back into the 18th century. The collections of the Cultural History Museum and the Upper Lusatia Library of Science are combined in the Görlitzer Sammlungen.
You are cordially invited to immerse yourself in the world of experience of the Görlitzer Sammlungen, to discover new things and to be inspired in a variety of ways. We are looking forward to you!

Unfortunately, due to the historical structure of the building, not all of our exhibition buildings can be visited by people with restricted mobility. This applies to the Reichenbacher and Nikolai Towers as well as to the Biblical House.
All of our exhibition houses are located in the historic old town of Görlitz, can be easily reached by foot and are only a few hundred meters apart.
