Were it not for the not-to-be-missed Hans Memling triptych The Final Judgement, most art buffs would give this art gallery a miss. There are a few minor works by the masters but you have to search them out. You will not find yourself over-awed by most of the artwork on display, as competent as it clearly is. There are remnants... More

It's an okay museum but it is rather small and does not have that many interesting art that you would expect...

One spectacular showpiece - huge Memling triptych of the Last Judgement. Some decent Flemish/Polish/German paintings, but jewellery section closed for reconstruction

Small but worth visiting if you'll find some time. The size of it makes it easy to see it in 30-45 min. The collection of paintings (it has also collection of ceramics or something on the ground floor, but I didn't see it), but it has the second most valuable painting in Poland - Last Judgement by Memling, so this...
