Worth visiting if you like contemporary polish art. There's also a good bookshop inside. The building itself is great as well, but now is being renovated.

Beautiful building with good contemporary art exhibition. It was a pity 2 of the 3 exhibitions were only in Polish - and did not have english subtitles - so I couldn't understand the videos and documentaries. Worth visiting if you are an art lover.

Zachęta offers a great artistic experience almost every time for stupid cheap (1pln if you're a student with Thursdays free for everyone). Nothing to loose and a lot to gain, as the gallery often hosts up to three separate exhibitions, catering to a wide range of tastes.

The setting is a beautiful neo-Renaissance building from the nineteen hundreds, one of the few buildings that survived the Nazi occupation, but on the inside you get the most contemporary of polish art, with some Balkan and generally European artists too. It's a really enjoyable experience and one you wouldn't want to miss if you enjoy great contemporary art.

Very small exhibition, uninteresting exhibition. There is so much to see in this town that I would say this is not worth a minute of your time. Very poor.

If you are really, really into conceptual art, you might find some rooms offering something of interest. I found most of it quite boring, repetitive, unemotional. Waste of time really.

I have been in Zachęta many times, but I don't recall if there was at least one thing worth seeing. Exhibition changes few times a year, but it is really nothing intresting.

The gallery is getting poorer every time I visit and that is a real shame. I wished I saw more modern art in there, my expectations were just too high.
