Jagiellonian University Museum is located in Collegium Maius. Between 1949 and 1964, on the personal initiative of Prof. Karol Estreicher Jr., the whole building of Collegium Maius underwent a major refurbishment and conservation, shedding all superfluous neogothic additions, that effectively blurred the austere elegance of its original structure.


It this time the Collegium Maius was also designated as the seat of the Jagellonian University Museum, home to ancient university collections, including the collection of the old scientific instruments. Most interesting treasures include: royal scepters, moon rock, an Oscar, a Nobel prize, the first globe to show North America and the astronomical instruments of Copernicus. There are rooms showing professors’ lifestyles over the centuries and the ceremonial halls are still used to grant doctorates or greet visiting dignitaries.
