The Museum restores the memory of people, places and events that shaped the appearance and identity of Wola, but it also studies and responds to the dynamic processes occurring in the district. It wants to jointly answer the question of what contemporary locality is. For Muzeum Woli, the residents of the district and, more broadly, of the capital are important. It supports the building of neighbourhood and district communities. It is a place where locality is defined by seniors, children and youth, foreigners and new residents of Warsaw.
