The mission of the Polish Cultural Institute and Museum is to collect, exhibit, interpret and disseminate the heritage of the Kashubian Polish Culture.

Polish Constitution Day – May 3, 2015

On May 3, 1791 Poland became only the second nation in history to adopt a written constitution. Although the nation of Poland has suffered much since that time, Polish Constitution Day has always been an important event – in Poland and wherever Polish people live. Winona’s Kashubian Polish community first celebrated this event on its centennial: May 3, 1891. On Saturday, May 2, 2015, Dr. Joseph Hughes of Springfield, MO will speak at the Polish Museum about Polish Constitution Day and Winona’s Kashubian Polish community.

Joe Hughes is Professor of Classics at Missouri State University and webmaster for the Polish Museum; he is the son of former Winonans Raymond F. and Laura M. (Bambenek) Hughes. He has traveled extensively to Kashubia over the last few years, and is writing a history of Winona’s Kashubian Polish community. He is also planning to lead a tour of Kashubia in July 2016. The video from his June 27, 2014 presentation “Our Kashubian Polish Heritage” is now available on YouTube.
