The Treasure House

Originally, in the north-west corner of the castle courtyard two cylindrical towers were erected, each with the diameter of nearly 11 meters. In the 15th century the towers were pulled down and a storied building, known as the Treasure House was built in this place. It was probably a square defensive tower which was subsequently extended by a part supported by buttresses and added in 1528.

Ever since, the building served residential purposes. With time it was destroyed and then rebuilt in the years 1957-1960 and destined for cultural purposes.

Nowadays it houses a regional museum and a Public Library. There are the following exhibitions in the museum: geological, historical, archaeological, paintings of professor Marian Czapla and sculptures of Antoni Adamski. Besides, there are temporary exhibitions presented there related to the current cultural events in Szydłów - mostly paintings.
