The Lace Museum was opened in 1962 as a memorial of late Maria Gwarek. Here you can admire many interesting exhibits: coifs, headscarf trimmings, ruffs, collars, bed linen ornaments, sheer curtains, triangular shaped shelf doilies; each one of these being of different pattern and shape inspired by the nature and tradition. One of the most interesting exhibits is an unfinished doily – a gift for the British Queen, Elisabeth II. The place is well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of the Koniaków lace-making tradition.
