The building of the Museum of Poles Saving Jews was designed by Nizio Design International – a company acclaimed for its modern museum architecture projects. The structure of the building is minimalistic and austere, and its shape draws on a primitive house. The exhibition area is 117.3 m². In its centre, a 5 x 8 m glass cubicle is located which acts as the 1:1 mock-up of the Ulmas’ house. The original house was standing elsewhere and no longer exists.

In front of the Museum building there is a square with illuminated plaques with names of Poles killed for saving Jews. The middle of the square is taken up by a slab with an inscription – a monument to the memory of Jewish victims of the Shoah and their anonymous Polish succourers. On the wall next to the Museum building there are nameplates of Podkarpacie residents who helped the Jews.

In the vicinity of the Museum fruit trees were planted – it is a beginning of the Orchard of Remembrance devoted to the saved Jews.
