  • Decent museum with a lot to do, good for an afternoon. Mainly features medieval to early modern art, with a few things from the early 1900s. Temporary exhibition was ok.

  • Lovely collection of art, and free on Tuesdays! Just be aware that every art class in Poland is there on the free day, the massive hoards of children can make exploring the museum a challenge. Inside there are some very stunning pieces by Polish painters, with a few additional galleries on world art. The paintings are by far the most impressive thing to see. The restaurant is in the lower levels and is a bit classier than one might expect at a museum. If there is a gift shop, we couldn't find it.
  • 99% of the museum closed. No indication.
