The Chicago Metro area has the largest Polish population of any city outside Warsaw, and this museum celebrates that fact. Take a trip to the old country by strolling through exhibits of folk costumes, memorabilia from Pope John Paul II, American Revolutionary War heroes Tadeusz Kosciuszko and Casimir Pulaski, and pianist and composer Ignacy Paderewski. There's also Hussar armor and an 8-foot-long sleigh in the shape of a dolphin. A good place to catch up on your reading;
the library has almost 100,000 volumes in Polish and English.
