During the eighteen eighties, they were presented to the Provincial Museum of Western Prussia in Gdańsk. After Poland regained independence, Kościerzyna organised an exhibition entitled “A presentation of the folk industry and rural areas”. Thanks to the initiative of Dr. Jerzy Knyb, the regional chamber was established in the high school in 1963, which was followed by the Chamber of National Remembrance years later.
At the beginning of the nineteen nineties, the collections gathered in the Chambers were relocated to the Kościerzyna Community Centre on Długa Street. However, it turned out that this place was too small. The decision was made to renovate the Kościerzyna City Hall for the new quarters. The work performed in the years 1995-2000 allowed the recvelation of the oldest public utility monument in Kościerzyna. The official opening took place on 17 July 2000, and the The Museum of the Kościerzyna Land in Kościerzyna was appointed on 27 October 2006.
A department of the Museum of the Kościerzyna Land is the Railway Museum and Poland’s only Accordion Museum.
