The museum building is easily recognizable thanks to a large graffiti on the elevation depicting the soldiers from the First World War period.
The museum has collected many exhibits associated with the Battle of Gorlice fought May 2–5, 1915. It was one of the most significant battles of the First World War, since it led to the one of the largest breakthroughs of the front in the history of Europe. As a result of the Battle of Gorlice, the Austrian and German forces finally drove the Russian army out to the east and forced it to retreat. The museum features e.g. a model of the battle with the marked positions of the fighting armies, as well as many elements of the uniform, military and combat equipment (rifles, bayonets, cartridge bags, mess-tins, and so on). Also noteworthy are memento items, made after the battle from the fragments of the military equipment; a monstrance made of Mauser rifle bullets and artillery shells stands out among them. The basement features an exhibition presenting the uniforms of the armies fighting in Galicia during the First World War. Among the wax figures are Emperor Franz Joseph and General Mackensen.
