- Museum Visits
Regional Chamber in Makow Podhalanski contains a unique collection of things which are very important for Makow's history and tradition. The Chamber has been located in a mansion called Paczosowka from 1892-96. The museum was opened thanks to Emil Wacyk and Kazimierz Stopa.
The Regional Chamber in Makow Podhalanski is located in the main street but it is off the beaten path. Even citizens to not know that it exists! I asked several people and they said that they have no idea where to find it. This is probably because the Chamber is located in the same building where local public library is situated. And everyone knows where the library is...:)
