Relatively small museum. Only 4 halls. It's great, because you will not get tired from the long exploration. And collections! Incredible! I could have watched and do nothing more. I have fallen in love with Polish Symbolism, Expressionism and Impressionism. Great pieces of works.

Wonderful experience. I would imagine a family visit would be worthwhile. Children can get involved with all the interactive features.

This gallery is situated in the Clothier's Hall in the Middle of the Market Square. It houses Polish paintings of the 19th-beginning 20th century. Especially interesting are paintings by Jan Matejko, Gierymski, Podkowiński, Malczewski.

Ok, I might have missed the signs that tell you to leave your coat before entering. But this doesn't excuse the fact that the ticket office person didn't tell us, the cloakroom attendant watched us walk by and when we went into the first room...More
