It's not like the Louvre, Prada or Rijksmuseum where you stumble from one masterpiece to the other and run a risk of getting overdosed. Here in Poznan you can really sharpen you sense for art. Great mix of crap and masterpieces.

Very concedrvative museum and exhibitions quality depends only on showpieces, but not on inventions, on curators attitude.

I came here on a Saturday when entrance is free. Unfortunately they did not have any audio guides neither book guides to buy. I must say that the collection is very interesting and I really liked it and enjoyed it. But I think it would have been better to have guide (at least a little book or anything). I was... More

Excellent opportunity to know more about Poland. Entrance fee is very cheap too. You will also be bale to find arts from other parts of Europe, such as from Germany and Italy.

This museum contains a large collection of European Art as well as ancient art from Egypt and Greece. The collections are extensive. It also features major Polish painters that are not well known in Western European museums but are worth seeing. The art is beautifully displayed and very easy to view. It is worth a journey for any art student... More

Certainly one of the very best collections of Polish art (a large number of true masterpieces, both of old masters and contemporary artists), which also possesses a good number of good European paintings. Could be open longer during week days.

It is a great size - small enough to see everything in one visit but big enough to host a wide range of art. Mostly Polish paintings, both modern and old. Some really beautiful artwork in here. I felt inspired. Plus, the basement has some great ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman works. This isn't the kind of place I would... More

I was very interested in the Polish artists art (luckily I did some research before going because there isn't any... More

The local Poznan national museum, http://www.mnp.art.pl/en has a fine collection of older paintings (including a Monet, a Boticelli and a number of other masters) and often interesting well-curated exhibitions like the present Titian/Veronese/Tiepolo-exhibition. Free entrance for the normal exhibition on Saturdays, btw. The English website is not updated properly - at least at the moment - but don't let that... More
