The PHC is for all of American Polonia, the eighth largest ethnic group in the United States, and our brethren in Poland. The center combines the concept of a museum with a cultural center focused on informing and educating visitors about Polish customs, traditions, history, and settlements.

The new state-of-the-art 16,500-square-foot center is a unique destination for families, educational groups, scholars, researchers, and visitors – both local and worldwide. The center has permanent and temporary gallery exhibits, a library, a genealogy research room, archives, theater, offices, and a conference room. PHC includes self-guided audio tours in English, Polish, Spanish, and one specifically for school groups. A library will have books in Polish and English for reading and research, and the archives and collections area will house and preserve artifacts and documents, while the genealogy room and oral history collection will offer opportunities for visitors to access family records and photos. PHC creates professional high-tech interactive and immersive experiences for visitors from early Polish history to the present. The Polish Heritage Center at Panna Maria relates the story of the Silesian Polish immigration to Texas through the “Polish Renaissance” that began in Texas in the late 1960s. The stories reflect our American history as a nation of immigrants and act as a lens to focus the meaning of faith, family, and community, and serve to rekindle a new generation’s interest in their Silesian and Polish heritage
