From the very beginning of its existence, i.e. 1982, the CCE in Bytom is a co-host of the building at Powstańców ¦l±skich 10.
The building was erected in the beginning of the XX century as a girls’ catholic pedagogical seminar. A four-storey building creates a letter C in an urban planning. Even nowadays its eclectic style draws the attention of architecture connoisseurs.
Within the building there is The School Museum. It includes the collection documenting the history of The Centre of Continuing Education in Bytom and The State Building Schools as well as the history of Silesia region and its people.
On the roof of the building there is an observation deck modernised by the CCE. When the weather is good one can admire the lovely sights of Bytom and its area. The sights are available live on the Internet.
