In operation since 1953, it is the only gallery of children’s and youth art of its kind. Its rich collection of works by children and youth is open to the public. The Jutrzenka Gallery is located in a historic Zakopane style villa. The Jutrzenka villa was built in the Zakopane style in 1900 in what is now the city park. In 1903, it was sold by owner Maria Ochorowiczowa and became a guest house, equipped with its own stable, horses, carriages, and photo workshop. Before World War I, the owners changed repeatedly. In 1918, Jutrzenka was confiscated by the High Mountain Company, and a year later it was bought by the local government.In the interwar years it housed the the Municipal Health Office and veterans’ organizations. After the Second World War, various youth organisations moved into Jutrzenka, including the Association of Polish Youth and the Scouts. In 1998 (after the reform of the educational system) the villa was taken over by the city. It currently houses the Tatra Culture and Sport Centre, the ArtPark Gallery, the Museum of Children’s and Youth art, and numerous children and youth interest groups. The facility is supervised by Tatra County.
The villa also hosts folklore classes put on by the folk band Zornica band, as well as highlander bands and bagpipe bands.
Led by professional pedagogical staff, participants take part in numerous artistic competitions of various scope, presentations of children's and youth art, regional competitions and artistic festivals, presenting their artistic achievements both at home and abroad.
