My wife and I visited here while we were in Detroit. When we walked in it felt like we traveled to Poland. The store at first is very overwhelming. My great grandparents came from Poland in the last 1800's and I am proud of my Polish heritage. We ended up buying some nice gifts for our house and for future... More

Located in a little store, you have an amazing shop. The inventory of gift items, decorative arts, jewelry, music, religious items, sweets, pottery is expansive. Staff is very hospitable and knowledgeable. Occasionally, they have classes for creating the art.

Located in Hamtramck, a long time Polish enclave, is where you'll find this wonderful shop. The rather large store is filled with a wide assortment of goods made in Poland. Everything from inexpensive cards to books to some rather expensive ceramics can be found here. I was able to pick up some nice gifts for friends and family. The owners... More

My husband and I stopped in and had a wonderful time with the lovely couple who own the shop. There were so many beautiful and original pieces of art, jewelry, clothing and books. It felt like you had taken a step back into a kinder and gentle time in history. As our purchases were being rung up she made us... More

We had a little one with us and I was worried about her touching and breaking things, but as it turned out, they had sample toys out and she... More

My wife and I took a trip to Detroit to attend an event one evening. This left us with the day following to explore other places around the area. In the office of the hotel we stayed at there was a brochure of the Polish Art Center. Since I am of Polish decent, we were intrigued to see what this... More
