Holy Father John Paul II Family Home
ul. Kościelna 7, Wadowice
A modern exhibition featuring mementoes and a variety of multimedia exhibits constructs the life story of the Polish Pope.
During his visit to Wadowice, already as the Pope, John Paul II recalled: “my home was behind the place where I stand, on Kościelna Street. And when I looked through the window, I could see the sundial on the church wall and the inscription reading ‘Time is flying, eternity is waiting’.”
The building mentioned by the Pope has been turned into a museum devoted to him. A modern exhibition replete with mementoes and many multimedia exhibits constructs the life story of the Polish Pope: from Wadowice – his “little homeland” – through the Kraków period to the Vatican. The heart of the museum is the reconstructed flat of the Wojtyłas, where the future Pope was born.
