This department of the City of Krakow Historical Museum was opened in 2005, and its collection gathers relics and memorabilia concerning Nowa Huta (photographs, archive materials and objects) as well as exhibits connected with this area from before the town and industrial complex were created, i.e. pre-1949. The temporary exhibitions on display here are connected with the history and monuments of this youngest district of Krakow. Museum lectures are held, as well as academic conferences dedicated to Nowa Huta.

The museum offers its guests themed car excursions around Nowa Huta and its environs. The themes of those tour include: "socio-realistic" architecture of Nowa Huta, introduction to the cultural landscape of the area of today's Nowa Huta with the title "Nowa Huta Wasn't Built in a Day" - visits to the cloister in Mogiła, the manor houses in Branice, Krzesławice, Łuczanowice, and Ruszcza and the Palaces in Pleszów and Kościelniki, places associated with such august personages as Tadeusz Kościuszko, Hugo Kołłątaj, Jan Matejko or Piotr Michałowski.

Tour participants can also learn about the archaeological discoveries in Nowa Huta, and the role of Mogiła as a cloister and fortress in the Republic of Poland, the history of Nowa Huta’s forts and the airport in Czyżyny.
