situated in the middle of the largest square in Bialystok, the Podlachia Museum is located in the former "town hall". Actually this building never used to be a city hall, but a commercial building built in the 18th Century for the towns' Jews to develop trade. It was extended with several side aisles which housed about 100 different Jewish sellers and shops. The actual building was destroyed under Communist times, and later rebuilt according to the original plans. The Museum of the region of Podlachia has several other branches, but this particular one has an exhibit of Polish paintings and temporary exhibits. Unfortunately, nothing about Jewish history !
