The Szołayski House, with its magnificent façade facing Szczepański Square, adjoins the buildings of the National Stary Theatre and the Palace of Art. It houses a branch of the National Museum in Kraków. The name of the Szołayski House is linked to its donors.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the building belonged to the Szołayski family, who bequeathed it to the National Museum in Kraków. In 1934, a branch was opened here named after Feliks 'Manggha' Jasieński, one of the museum's greatest benefactors, a patron of the arts and a promoter of modernism. His collections, including European graphics and ceramics, a collection of textiles from Europe and the Far East, numerous antiques and a sizeable collection of Japanese art. In 2003, the Stanisław Wyspiański Museum, relocated from Kanonicza Street, was opened in the Szołayski Tenement House and a permanent exhibition devoted to Jasieński was organised. In addition to permanent and temporary exhibitions, the department hosts lectures, concerts, theatre performances and art classes for children and teenagers.
