The theatre was designed by Karol Kozłowski in an eclectic style and built in the years 1884-1886. Despite many refurbishments and modernisations the building has preserved its original fin de siecle façade and interior décor of the hall and the auditorium.

The Lublin venue attracted the elite of the theatre stage including Juliusz Osterwa, Aleksander Zelwerowicz, Stefan Jaracz, Ludwik Solski, Helena Modrzejewska, Mieczysława Ćwiklińska, and Ryszarda Hanin.

Juliusz Osterwa Theatre continues to provide best-quality entertainment and acts as an important centre of culture for the city and the whole Lublin Region.
