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.

A pleasant place to visit, it features works of art from different countries and epochs, but it's main focus is on Polish art and painting. You can see the expositions from ancient Egypt to modern creators. The old part of the museum is great architectonic masterpiece itself. It features some great pieces of Polish authors, so it is especially interesting... More

I used to visit weekly when I was in high school. The old part is especially interesting but the new part includes some of Polish most famous painters' works. Located right in the heart of the city a perfect alternative if it begins to rain. Very quiet and not crowded, you don't hear the busy streets outside...

The collection contains quite numerous pieces of polish paintings such as Gierymski and Wyspiański masterpieces. Do not miss Matejko corner. The national museum in Poznań is said to have the biggest collection of the polish symbolist Malczewski. Also I have found the Claude Monet and Botticelli. Visit on Saturday is free of charge.

We’ve visited the museum in mid-September. Being familiar with Polish history and culture it was good to see such an impressive collection of art. Many Polish and other European artists are featured there spanning across centuries. Entry fee is very affordable. It is a large museum, well kept, and definitely not crowded. Smaller rooms connected through doorways may at times... More

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
