The Minister of Culture and National Heritage, in turn, noted that the Polish History Museum in Warsaw is “the largest investment of the Polish state in the field of culture and the most important among 300 museum projects and almost eight thousand investments in culture, implemented over the last less than eight years.” – This is exactly what a place that will tell the story of over a thousand years of history of Poland and Poles should look like – concluded Gliński.
