Each of us has probably visited at least one museum, based on various exhibition formats. Our Museum of Motorisation in Biała Olecka is built around the exhibits which are the object of both fascination and sentiment. Well, in the not so distant past, only a decade ago, having in mind the motorisation memories connected with my dad, I decided to collect the vehicles which he had driven and in which I had become a conscious passenger and soon – thanks to them – also a car and motorcycle enthusiast.
As it tends to be with every collection, the number of objects one would like to gather was only increasing. Within ten years, we managed to collect almost 200 exhibits. The richest collection consists, indeed, of Polish motor vehicles, starting from simple single-track vehicles to daily drivers, which were the indispensable building block of the People’s Republic of Poland. But there are also some “western” notes in this Polish accent. For our collection, we managed to obtain the Volvo limousine used by Lech Wałęsa during his presidency, and the British Humber that was at the disposal of the Primate of Poland, Stefan Cardinal Wyszyński.
