Much-awaited goodies have arrived at the Polish Museum in Elliot Street, Howick in time for the school holidays.
A donation museum staff were expecting from Poland for the Polish Comics and their Creators exhibition arrived at the Polish Museum in Howick this week from cultural attaché Zofia Halwic at the Polish Embassy in Wellington.
She organised this donation for the Polish Museum’s participation in the East Auckland Art Trail exhibition and family craft workshops on these topics.
The themes coincide with the Polish Parliament’s 2023 Year of Polish Comics, as well as popular author and illustrator Henryk Chmielewski and his Copernicus adventure issue of the comic Tytus, Romek and A’Tomek in Polish and English.
These themes commemorate 100 years since the author’s birth and 550 years since the astronomer’s birth.
As well, the museum now has a copy of the Academy of Superheroes book about famous Poles with two boxed card game sets in English.
“I am sure these will be most appreciated by some of our younger visitors to the Polish Museum in Howick,” a museum spokesperson said.
