Great paintings, badly exhibited
Aug 2020
The violet room (late 19th to early20th century) is a true highlight that in one room shows one of the most iconic examples of the Polish painting, many of which are just breathtaking. The other rooms are a bit less interesting but it might be a matter of personal taste - it seemed to me though that the truly interesting paintings from the violet room would benefit a lot from being exhibited less crammed and with more space around them to allow them to breathe, even if less paintings is shown in the exhibition space overall. In my opinion the works from this one room could have been easily just hung better to fill the whole gallery and it'd be great! See how it's done in the Tates, Guggenheims, etc...
The second major problem is that none of the paintings have any descriptions and there is very little information provided - this is a real disappointment, as there's no good reason for it.
Overall, great paintings but badly curated - someone should really rethink how it's done.

Well worth the time if you appreciate paintings
Sep 2020
They had some great and memorable paintings here. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and took lots of pictures of the paintings. The day I visited, a Tuesday, was free and surprisingly with very few guests. It didn't seem like many people knew about it yet it's in the heart of the old town.

Museum of Polish art above the Cloth Hall...
Nov 2019 • Family
This small museum of Polish Art is located on the second floor above the Cloth Hall in Krakow Old Town Market Square. There are three rooms to view the impressive artworks before heading to the cafe on the floor below with an open air balcony overlooking the Basilica. 20 PLN entry (15 PLN for children) or 50 PLN for a family ticket. Worth a visit !

Great for art lovers AND balcony access
Sep 2019
This is a nice museum on the second floor of the Cloth Hall. Only four rooms but full of some great works and a good way to spend an hour or so. Very spacious and not very crowded when I was there. Rick Steves’ guidebook has an excellent section describing the major works in this museum, otherwise you can rent an audioguide.

When you leave the museum take the stairs on the right which will give you access to the balcony and a bird’s eye view of the square and St. Mary’s Church. A great place to take photos or just relax.

Art by Polish painters
Sep 2019 • Solo
My visit to this museum was by coincidence. Was on my way out of the Cloth Hall Market when I spotted the entrance. Free entry on Sundays. Close by 4pm. If you wanted to rent an audio guide, it’s costs 5-7 zloty (sorry, can’t remember).

Exhibitions are on the 2nd floor and divided into 4 rooms. Each room displays paintings and sculptures from different periods.

Was surprised by some larger than life artworks. Amazing. Did not know any of the painters before entering this exhibition, will definitely look them up after.

Outstanding art

Even if you know something about the Polish art from the 19th century, it is a graet visit to the Gallery. Very good works to watch and learn.

Well Done and Worth Visiting
May 2019 • Friends
We are extremely happy that we made the decision to visit the Gallery of 19th-Century Polish Art at Sukiennice (Galeria Sztuki Polskiej XIX wieku w Sukiennicach), a division of the National Museum, Kraków. The Gallery, which opened at 9:00 AM on the day of our visit, is housed on the upper floor of the Renaissance Sukiennice Cloth Hall in the center of the Main Market Square in the Old Town of Kraków. Founded in October 1879, the Gallery holds the largest permanent exhibit of the 19th century Polish painting and sculpture, in four large rooms. The majority of the collection at Sukiennice are the result of gifts from collectors, artists, and their families. This is an exceptionally well done museum in terms of layout, presentation, and management. Photographs are permitted.
