Gorgeous interiors and a couple of temporary exhibits. It really takes you back in time. There is a small cafe within the museum with really nice terrasse.

The Museum is located in a fabulous building the Izrael Poznanski Palace demonstrating the wealth and riches enoyed by some in this Polish "Manchester". Much to see and enjoy but music fans will like the Artur Rubinstein exhibits and those interested in the Second World War will enjoy the exhibits relating to Jan Karski who was a hero of the...

A very heavy atmosphere and museum staff that keep a constant eye on you as you walk around, do nothing to engage the viewer with the exhibits. Famous Lodz citizens are venerated here and you can get a feel of what it must have been like to live in such an austere mansion at the corner of the vast textile... More

I think most people would nowadays say "meh..." if asked about this place. The lack of an English, or any other for that matter, translation, means if you have no knowledge of Polish you are going to struggle. Nice building, just a little boring in terms of a museum.

Go to see the inside of Poznanski's home. Otherwise, the expositions are pointless and boring. And the paintures and contemporary art expositions were embarrassing (but this is me perhaps!)

I was interested in the history of the city and this covered most of it but in some parts of the museum, things were thrown together! Lacking English so a knowledge of Polish is necessary

This museum is just the right size - i.e. small - and contains a rather random mix of relics of the house and its past glory as the Poznanski's palace, information and relics of former illustrious Lodz residents, and historical artefacts. All very interesting and beautifully presented. If you've seen Wajda's 'The Promised Land', this is a must, as are... More

We came to this museum mostly to see the Jan Karski room containing artifacts and honors given to this WWII Polish underground hero. That was wonderful, but the rest of the museum (formerly a very beautiful mansion) was very impressive as well. The location near Andel's Hotel and the Manufacktura shopping district is perfect as well.

This museum is located adjacent to Manufaktura and on the way to the city. It is also on the edge of the Litzmannstadt Ghetto, so a good place to start a day's trail. You have to pay for entry, and the art gallery section is extra. They occasionally host concerts in the lovely halls. Some of the history of the... More
