I enjoyed this gallery it is small but contains a lot of history and well worth a quick visit even if art is not your thing. Look out for the lady on the horse.

Free on Sundays. Famous Polish artists. Nice to have a little chill time to have a look at some fantastic pieces of art. You don't have to be a Art critic to appreciate this little gem.

Set in a fine space, we enjoyed a couple of hours viewing and admiring this great collection. Beginning with more classical themes, the sculpture of Psyche reclining and paintings of Death of Ellenai, Wernyhora, Water Nymphs and Hebe were delightful. Other sculptures such as First...More

This is a pretty nice museum with lots of Polish Art in the upstairs level of the Cloth Hall. There are great views of the Market Square. It's definitely worth a visit. Lots of important works of Polish art.

Housed upstairs in the cloth hall, the museum houses many interesting works of art. Stop for a beer in the second floor Cafe and watch the activities below in the market square.

Situated inside the Cloth Hall, the museum had a fantastic range of art work by Polish painters. The terrace and terrace cafe also have a stunning view over the main market square below. Wouldn't recommend for young kids but definitely worth a visit for adults.

I agree with Andy B, you'll find that most places will be closed on 01 January, 31 Dec there will be lots of parties and I'm guessing that the next day everyone is too tired and/or hung over to do any sightseeing. However if... More
