The National Museum offers several exhibitions connected with local and national history and art. What's more there's always a special, temporary exhibition.

A large collection of mostly paintings and some sculptures. Polish and foreign. Especially worth attention are the great works of impressionists and expressionists. The museum is divided into the old historic building with beautiful ornaments and the new modern three-story house. Perfect to immerse yourself into the thick atmosphere of art on a rainy day.

Didn't have a lot of time but I spent about 90 minutes skimming the museum. Mostly Polish art with which I am not familiar. Pleased to find some wonderful examples of impressionism as well as some early Church and Political art

This museum offers a nice collection of Polish and other European paintings, it struck me as an alternate version of Louvre. They have a tour guide who walks you through all details in fluent English. You're also introduced to the fact that a lot of the museum's collection was stolen by Nazis during the second world war. Next time I... More

Love this museum - looking forward to coming back. I didn't know any Polish artists before coming here. I didn't know anything about their collection either. With surprise and joy I found out that Polish art in the beginning of 20th century may be characterised as a late impressionism with a light touch of romantism. Some are masterpieces. he portrait...

I was favorably impressed by the depth of their collection. Emphasis is on Polish artists. I don't think I had heard of any of them before but some excellent works, especially the impressionists. They also have a couple of French impressionist works alongside the Poles. Also a small but good collection of Italian medieval and Renaissance as well as Spanish.... More
