Opera was brought to Poland only twenty years after it first appeared in Florence, by Royal Prince Ladislaus IV Vasa, who in 1628 invited the first Italian opera troupe to Warsaw. As soon as he ascended the Polish throne in 1632, he had a theatre hall built in his castle, where regular opera performances were produced by an Italian company directed by Marco Scacchi.

The Theatre Museum is located in the west wing of the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera building in the historical Reduta Rooms, and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and during intermissions of spectacles at the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera.
