Love this museum - looking forward to coming back. I didn't know any Polish artists before coming here. I didn't know anything about their collection either. With surprise and joy I found out that Polish art in the beginning of 20th century may be characterised as a late impressionism with a light touch of romantism. Some are masterpieces. he portrait...

I was favorably impressed by the depth of their collection. Emphasis is on Polish artists. I don't think I had heard of any of them before but some excellent works, especially the impressionists. They also have a couple of French impressionist works alongside the Poles. Also a small but good collection of Italian medieval and Renaissance as well as Spanish.... More

I was here last week and I wish I had time to make several trips over a few days. It's a lot bigger than expected and I spent hours on the Polish art. I was seriously impressed by this place. The Polish art was refreshing and the rooms with Dutch/Flemish art and Italian art were great too. Admission is super... More

Not the most original museum in terms of set-up but its contemporary art collection contained a couple of impressive paintings by Polish artists.

The national museum is a very nice gallery. The rooms are large and most of the art is Polish There are some English information but it probably is a good idea to get an audio guide

Very nice gallery of European and polish art. There is even Monet, Franz von Stuck, Bassano, Tintoretto, Jose Ribeira and others. Very interesting to see TADEUSZ MAKOWSKI, Jozef Mehoffer, Marian Wawrzeniecki obras. Recommended to everyone who is interested in arts and culture.

On my first visit I went to see their Monet, only to learn that it had been stolen. During our years in Poznan, the Monet was recovered, so I did finally get to see it. In the end, it was disappointing. There were other pieces I enjoyed more, maybe it was one of his early works. They have a huge... More

There are many many pieces of art from Poland and all over Europe. Gives a interesting view into Polish history. Its a huge very quiet place. The only thing I did not like about it was the lack of explanation.
