I really enjoyed the Stanley Kubrick exhibition, and wondering around at the permanent exhibitions. I was really surprised there weren't more people in the museum, I had it nearly all to myself. Worth a visit!

Was a very affordable and enjoyable exhibition. Showcasing props, information, photographs and memorabilia from all his popular movies. A must for any Kubrick fan.

Surprisingly, very modern and interesting. Strongly attracted attention.
Worth recommending.
The exhibition, which involved criminal offenses watched, aroused admiration in my eyes and sometimes horror. Surprising ideas present act of murder meant that I spent half a day at the museum!. really great

Been several times and always interesting. It takes about 2 hours to cover it all and takes you through the history of krakow and Poland generally. Really ignores ww2 but everything before. A must see in my opinion. Leave time for the tribecca cafe. Coffee and a cake is a must

The National Museum as a piece of architecture is downright ugly. It looks like a product of the Stalin era but was in fact built in the 1930s. It is a grim concrete block. Inside the interior is generally a reflection of the exterior particularly in the front foyer and the coat check area which looks like the entrance to a Stalinist interogation room.

Despite this the collection of furniture, paintings and ther artifacts on the ground floor is breath taking. Top Quality pieces from the Gothic period up to the mid 20th century. There was a special exhibition on architecture of the Art Deco period and that was extremely interesting.

I did not have time to see the second floor which contained Modern Polish Art but this is not my thing anyway. This museum is not to be missed.
