The Porcelain Museum in Wałbrzych – a museum founded in 1908 on the initiative of the Altertumsverein für das Waldenburger Gebirgsland, established on the initiative of Julius Joppich and given the name Altertumsmuseum für das Waldenburger Gebirgsland. In 1926, the care of the museum, which changed its name to Heimatmuseum in Waldenburg, was taken over by the then Municipal Board in Wałbrzych. The collections were moved to the representative Alberti Palace (Albertihaus) in Wałbrzych at 1 Maja Street, then Gottesbergerstraße 23. Friedrich Stelter became the first full-time manager of the museum, and from 1936 this function was held by Heinrich Bartsch.

The Nazi gold train or Wałbrzych gold train is an urban legend about a train laden with gold and treasure that was hidden by the Nazis in southwest Poland during the last days of World War II. The apocryphal tale claims the train full of valuables, including artwork, was concealed in a sealed-up rail tunnel or mine in the Central Sudetes by retreating Nazis. Despite numerous searches since 1945, including by the Polish Army during the Cold War, no evidence of the train, its tracks or treasure have ever been found. Historians believe the train never existed. However, some people believe it is true.
