The Frog Museum is the first museum in Poland dedicated to all types of frogs. The museum is located in a building next to the Directorate of the Table Mountain National Park in the Polish city of Kudowa-Zdroj and was opened in 2002. The purpose of creating this unusual museum is to preserve the population of amphibians on our land, as well as to study the peculiarities of their life.
The first part of the collection was transferred to Kudowa-Zdroj from Berlin. Currently, the permanent exhibition of the museum has more than 3000 exhibits brought from 20 countries from all continents. Here you can see the most different types of frogs, exhibits mummified in formaldehyde, as well as a wide variety of household items made in the form of frogs. Among the exhibits of the museum are: piggy banks, a diving mask, sunglasses, various brooches and hairpins, soap dishes, wooden toys in the shape of frogs, ties with their image, ceramic pots and much, much more. The museum is always ready to accept as a gift any item made in the form of a frog or having a similar image.
