Construction Projects

At the State Archives, we consistently invest in modern and functional buildings for secure and long-term storage and sharing of archival materials. Thanks to the financial help from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, since 2013 we have been able to open state-of-the-art State Archives offices in Gorzów Wielkopolski, Radom, Zielona Góra, Bielsko-Biała, Rzeszów, Białystok and Kraków. We have also altered and modernized archives in Bolesławiec, Lublin, Gdańsk, Międzyzdroje and Suwałki. Currently ongoing projects include archive buildings in Nowy Sącz and Bydgoszcz, in addition to a comprehensive electrical modernization of 27 State Archives buildings.

Our projects in Katowice, Koszalin, Łódź, Piotrków Trybunalski, Poznań and Szczecin are currently in their early stages.

  • environmental conditions conducive to long-term document storage,
  • low environmental footprint and energy consumption thanks to the use of renewable energy sources and cutting-edge technologies,
  • state-of-the-art conservation and digitization workshops for even more effective preservation of valuable archival materials.


  • spaces for meetings and cultural events in state-of-the-art exhibition and conference rooms,
  • spacious and comfortably furnished reading rooms with computers and self-service scanners,
