In Maków Podhalański, located south of Wadowice, you should obligatorily see the Emil Wacyk Regional Chamber of the Maków Land. The chamber is located in the “Paczosówka manor” and you can see the documents and photos concerning the history of the town and the surrounding area (also related to the period of the Nazi occupation). There are also old household items and works of folk artists, including sculptures, paintings, wooden toys and examples of the unique white Maków embroidery.

In Lanckorona, located in the north of Maków, you will find the Museum Chamber named after Antoni Krajewski, a professor form Kraków. This facility is housed in a wooden building, that survived the town fire in 1896. The museum was founded on the initiative of the Friends of Lanckorona Society, and you can see there exhibits from excavations at the Lanckorona castle as well as everyday objects and folk handicrafts of the local residents from the beginning of the 20th century. Part of the exhibition is dedicated to the Bar Confederation.

Other museums worth visiting include the Municipal Museum in Sucha Beskidzka, the Local Product Gallery in Stryszów, the Municipal Museum in Wadowice and the Polish-American private museum Hell's Angel. The exhibition presents, among others, fragments of the American B-24 “Liberator” bomber, which was shot down in Zygodowice during World War II after an air raid on the chemical plant in Oświęcim.
