The oldest and largest fort of the Krakow Fortress (1850–56) is home to this museum’s collections. They are dedicated to the life of Tadeusz Kościuszko (1746–1817) general and national hero for both Poles and Americans, the man who participated in the American Revolution, staged an anti-Russian uprising in Poland and was the High Commander of the National Armed Forces during the 1794 insurrection. The items in the collection are connected with the most important events in the Commander’s life: The American Revolution, the Polish-Russian War, the Constitution of the 3rd of May, the insurrection named after him, his imprisonment by the Russian authorities, and his time in London, France, and Switzerland. It also highlights Kościuszko’s legacy in Poland and in Krakow, including the events surrounding his stay in Krakow, his funeral in 1818, the construction of the Kościuszko Mound (1820–23) and major events which took place on the Kościuszko Mound in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including the dramatic period of rebuilding the mound in 1997 – 2002. On the ground floor of bastion V there’s an exhibition called. “Krakow Mounds”.
