We mainly went to see the leonardo da Vinci, which was great to see with no crowds. The wyspianski exhibition is also a draw but generally we thought there were too few paintings of note to give this more than an average rating. The armoury...More

While Krakow as a whole is a largely undiscovered gem, the National Museum is a treasure that shouldn't be missed. The national collection is scattered among several different locations but the pride of Krakow is Leonardo Da Vinci's 'Lady With an Ermine'; This magnificent painting...More

OK this is not the normal home for Da Vinci's iconic painting, but do take the trouble to visit this museum and its collection. There are also some great examples of modern Polish artists and a superb collection of items from Polands varied past.

The museum is okay. I had the pleasure of seeing the 'Lady and the Ermine' from Da Vinci as well as some renowned Polish painters from the 19th-20th century. Other than that, you're not missing out on anything. There were other exhibitions in different halls,...More

Good Wyspianski exhibition and the Lady in Ermine is a must see but there's not much else. We walked about thinking we'd missed something. There was much confusion about which ticket were needed so clarify what you are paying for. Apart from the two exhibitions...More
