THE MUSEUM OF ST. JOSEPH SEBASTIAN PELCZAR IN CRACOW Dedicated to Saint Józef Sebastian Pelczar (1842–1924), professor and rector of the Jagiellonian University, founder of the Congregation of the Servants of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, and bishop of Przemyśl, the museum boasts an interesting collection of his manuscripts, letters, first editions, memorabilia and personal belongings. The museum features the life and career of J. S. Pelczar by documenting his accomplishments with photographs, pictures and relics, focusing on his many years in Krakow. The idea of founding the museum arose at the beginning of the 80-ties of the XX century in connection with the process of canonization and a wider interest in the personage of J.S. Pelczar. This place has its own character. It presents a collection of memorabilia whereas the sheer variety of the exhibits constitutes an attempt to reconcile the educational and formational function of the museum. The exposition is addressed to a wide range of visitors and has the character of a permanent exposition. Temporary exhibitions are organized but occasionally at the museum and are related to the activity of the Congregation of the Servants of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Visitors to the above-mentioned museum can also become acquainted with the person who cocreated the congregation together with St. J.S. Pelczar, that is with venerable mother Klara Ludwika Szczęsna; in the last part of the museum they can see some mementos related to Pope John Paul II, who the sisters of the congregation attended to when he was bishop of Cracow and afterwards when he moved to the Holy See in the Vatican.
