Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Loved everything about the museum, the architecture, the exhibits and the friendly welcome from staff. I am disabled and they helped me every step of the way. The museum is easily accessible and their permanent exhibitions (which are free on Saturdays) have raised pictures, braille and a textured path for the visually impaired. I was very impressed, definitely worth a visit.

Museum opened after a lockdown welcomes visitors in a sanitary regime. Everyone wears masks and keeps social distance. Disinfectants are readily available.
Feeling safe facilitates visiting the museum.

Three permanent exhibits which show the regional culture (14-15 century sculpture), European and Polish paintings. Worth visiting.

This museum contains an incredible collection of artwork of all kinds (paintings, sculptures - stone and wood, reliefs, stained-glass, decorative arts) mostly focused on Wroclaw and Silesia and particularly strong on pre-1600s religious art pieces. Normally this wouldn't particularly interest me, but the quality and depth of the works are significant, and teach us how evolved Central European art was in that period.
The museum is very well laid out, and the guides helpfully point you in the recommended direction on each floor.

An excellent visit.
We headed straight for the 3rd floor and the 'Miracle Workers' exhibition. It is housed in what appeared to be a recent and inspired modernisation of the attic space of the building. The exhibits were beautifully housed and information was in Polish and English. Each gallery was small enough to enjoy everything on offer and there were places to sit and admire. The docent of the furniture gallery was really informative and happy to engage with us. We thank him.
We ran out of time to visit everything the museum had to offer...We highly recommend it.

The National Museum in Wrocław has a great collection of Polish art, from 17th to 19th century (ie great art of Makowski, Wyczolkowski, Chelmonski, Pruszkowski). It was also great to see collection of Silesian stone sculpture and art from 16th to 19th century. The collection called European art from 15th to 20th century was quite modest, but nice and well curated (Breughel, Cranach, Kemmer, Altdorfer).

A must see if in Wroclaw.

Loved this museum though parts of it were confusing. Some exhibits you had to pay additional for. At times, it was like a maze going through but there was usually someone there to guide you. The building is beautiful and the permanent collection with all of the Polish art works was just breath-taking. I loved visiting and with I had more time there.

Came here before panorama as trips booked up for next couple of hours ( had to go back across road to buy multi pass ticket as not available in museum and nobody told us at panorama entrance ! )

Interesting collection of exhibits especially if you are into church artifices and religious paintings. The balance of the exhibits are made up of a mixture of weaponry , ancient household goods with comparison pieces throughout the ages and also entertainment , clothing , and historic pieces from the region including the Wroclaw merchant market scales.
Not the best museum you will have been to but worth a visit.
Note , like most polish museums they have a person in each exhibit hall. Keep your ticket they may want to see it !!

This Museum is full of religious artefacts, Mary holding the baby Jesus, Mary holding her dying son and then more of the same. It seemed to be over staffed and the staff did not interact with visitors.

My wife and I spent about 2 1/2 hours visiting this museum, and we enjoyed it very much. In our opinion is a better and larger display of Polish Art than the Krakow Museums. But for some reason, it does not seem to have much popularity with the locals or visitors. We visited on a Sunday, and there were few others around. This is in sharp contrast with the Raclawice Panorama nearby which seems to be always crowded.

I particularly enjoyed the landscape paintings as well as those related to the Polish struggles to forge a nation. This Museum is certainly not the Louvre or the London National Gallery, but if you have found your way to Wroclaw, it should be a priority to visit it, particularly if you are a history or art lover.

By the way, when you book your entrance to the Panorama, the same ticket entitles you to visit a couple of other museums, one of which is this one. Unless you are very lucky, most likely your timed entrance to Panorama will be several hours away after purchase. Therefore you can use a couple of hours to visit and enjoy the National Museum, or walk along the Odra River, and then head back to the Panorama.

Another tip I can offer is to take a few minutes when you are in the area to visit the Memorial Monument to the Victims of the Katyn Massacre. It is just outside the Panorama.

Lots of different galleries in here rather than just one or two themes, which we found good as we're not specifically into any form of art but just came for a nose around.
