The old and new buildings merge beautifully. Pity no lift in old part and no cafe. The air conditioning in modern part very welcome on a hot day You are allowed to take photos. There is a small shop with art work for sale.

Superb building for a start. Artwork superbly displayed. It has a wonderful collection of 19th and 20th century art and an internationally-worthy collection of great European art-masters.

Most of the museum are actually paintings. I would classify it as a gallery. In a National Museum, I would expect to learn about the nation and country history through a collection of its arts and artefacts. This is not the case in this institution....More

The National Museum offers several exhibitions connected with local and national history and art. What's more there's always a special, temporary exhibition.

A large collection of mostly paintings and some sculptures. Polish and foreign. Especially worth attention are the great works of impressionists and expressionists. The museum is divided into the old historic building with beautiful ornaments and the new modern three-story house. Perfect to immerse yourself...More
