About
The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw has two locations. The smaller space for public program & offices are on the ground floor of the residential building at ul. Panska 3, next to the InterContinental hotel (5 min. walk from the Central Railway Station, across from the Palace of Culture and Science). The multifunctional venue is used as auditorium, cinema or performance space, depending on the current program. The main, temporary exhibition space is called Museum by the Vistula and it is located at Wybrzeze Kosciuszkowskie 22, next to the Copernicus Science Centre and the University of Warsaw Library, in a pavillion designed by Austrian architect Adolf Krischanitz. The pavilion was previously used as a temporary abode of the Kunsthalle in Berlin. It was lent to the Museum free of charge by the Viennese Thyssen-Bornermisza Art Contemporary foundation. The Museum’s facade is covered with painting by artist Sławomir Pawszak. There is a bookshop & cafe in both locations.

Awesome little museum. This is their temporary seat and they only host temporary exhibitions that are a bit of a gamble – they're all very well made, but we're all different and there's gotta be hits and misses when it comes to personal taste. I can't wait for their move to the final museum building sometime next year!

Very good place for people who love art. You can also find a shop in which you can buy books, games etc. This Museum is small but definitely worth visiting. The exhibition is very interesting and beautiful.

The building, as you might expect from a temporary structure, is really just a large open room with high ceiling. The current exhibit (August 2022) is more a commentary on modern society than a riveting example of art. 'Angst and Despair' should be the name of the exhibit, as artist after artist presents dark, frightening portraits of... what, exactly? Apparently the fact that evil exists in the world is an overwhelming discovery by an entire generation of artists. The fact that good also exists (and, some would say, dominates) has been overlooked for the sake of drama and trendiness. Some examples of technical expertise can be found, but many more sacrifice craft for emotion, as if the two are somehow mutually exclusive. (The current exhibit at the Zacheta Gallery reaffirms the trend.)

This temporary exhibition space called “the Museum on the Vistula” was opened in 2017 next to the Copernicus Science Centre and the University of Warsaw Library.

There is a new museum building coming on the northern side of Plac Defilad next to the Palace of Culture and Science, the famous landmark of Warsaw. The new museum is scheduled to open in 2023.

I am sure that the new museum will be much better.

The current exhibit, "Never Again: Art Against Fascism in the 20 and 21st centuries," is a must see. The art and the message are powerful and relevant for our times. I was given a very informative personal tour of the exhibit by a super knowledgeable guide.

This is a one-(large-)room modernist building housing a modern arts museum. The exhibit we saw was on antifascist art. A small sample, with unclear selection criteria (there is much more I could think of) but what was there was very convincing.

The museum also features a café and a couple tables' and shelves' worth of a bookstore, with an excellent selection of high-quality literary works in English.

Overall, the experience is very nice, it is a truly wonderful, worthwhile experience for the whole family.

I had a much bigger expectations. The museum itself is small and it was not my luck with this specific exhibition. The works itself was nice, it’s just was too small and didn’t match my hopes.

We were a big group of design students who got a tour in English and it was very thorough and well thought out!

The museum is situated on beautiful place, near the river. It is small but the experience was amazing. “Never again” was a exhibition that I will not forget.

Wonderful place with great taste for art. Edgy, bold, world-class type of place. Committed, competent, art-loving staff. I spontaneously stepped in for out turned out to be a great exhibition of a unique artists, and was treated to a private tour. This is their temporary location, so don't expect a large venue, it is worth it nevertheless. Plus their location is superb (riverside) with plenty of nice cafes /bistros around.
In my view a must for any art lover, in fact any person with broad horizons.
