Musée Adam Mickiewicz Museum In Paris France

Adam Mickiewicz was a great Polish romantic poet born in Poland in the year 1798 and went to the University of Vilnius where he studied between the years of 1815 and 1819 and the Musée Adam Mickiewicz is dedicated to his works and him.

Adam Mickiewicz had a very eventful life and was a publicist as well as a political figure, which ended in him getting arrested and deported to Russia.
He spent a year in a Russian prison and after his release he remained in Russia for a while before going to Western Europe where he travelled before eventually settling down in Paris in August 1832.

Musée Adam Mickiewicz Museum In Paris France

During the reign of Napoleon III, Adam Mickiewicz gave up his political activity and became a librarian in the Parisian Library of the Arsenal, but it was during the Crimean war that he once again returned to political activity.

He was sent to Turkey to support the formation of Polish troops to fight against Russia and mediate between different fraction of Polish, and he arrived in Constantinople in September 1855 for this task.

During his time in the City of Paris and whilst abroad, Adam Mickiewicz created lots of lyrics, ballads, poems, dramas and poetic tales and all had a profound meaning, especially with his love for his own country, which has meant a lot more to the people that have read his works since his death.

However, he attempted to publish two dramas in French, but these were unsuccessful and they were then translated into Polish and published after his death in 1866 and although he was initially buried in France, his remains were moved and re-buried in the vault of Wawel Cathedral in Krakow, which is the same place that many of the Polish Kings buried.

The work of Adam Mickiewicz has inspired many composers, painters, writers, poets, and sculptors from numerous countries and you will be able to see monuments and visit museums dedicated to him in lots of cities in Poland, plus places like Paris and Istanbul.

In fact, within the 8th Arrondissement of Paris in the Cours Albert Garden along the River Seine you will see a monument that was produced by Emile Antoine Bourdelle who was captivated by Adam Mickiewicz's works.

The Musée Adam Mickiewicz is situated in the 4th Arrondissement of Paris within the Polish library and was created by Adam Mickiewicz's Son in 1903.  The museum contains personal memorabilia, documents, letters and correspondence, manuscripts, portraits, souvenirs and other items that relate to his time as a publicist, plus as the romantic Polish poet and when he was involved with political activity.

The Musée Adam Mickiewicz is only open for guided tours on a Thursday from 2pm to 6pm and these are conducted by prior appointment.
