Villa Caro a branch of the Gliwice Museum, is a great example of a nineteenth-century industrialist mansion with rich furnishings and decorative interiors. In addition to furniture and original features, we will also see the ethnographic exhibition, showing the cross-sectional regional folk culture of Silesia.

The building itself was built in the eighties of the nineteenth century, the upper floor is more than four decades younger. Visitors can see how wealthy citizens of Silesia lived more than a hundred years ago, people, who built whole industries on these lands. An important element of the exhibition is a large collection of porcelain and other pottery, mainly German, but also Polish.

The very architecture of the building refers to the European Renaissance, making the building a real gem in this industrial city. The villa is often used as a place for meetings and events.
