One of the best things in Rzeszow!

This museum is very nice. It is small, but has interesting military exhibits. The staff is often friendly. They offer a variety of special events throughout the year.

Fine Local Museum worth a visit
Oct 2019
An impressive local museum housed in a former monastery. It contains a fine collection of historical and cultural artifacts providing a brief glimpse into past centuries of Polish life and struggle. There are also two small but interesting art collections. Its Polish gallery has some impressive 18th to 20th century paintings, portraits of civic leaders and half a dozen powerful studies of men and women at everyday tasks. The portrait of the “Needlewoman and Cat” is particularly evocative. The Italian collection features works from the 17th century. “Dianna and Callisto” by Francesco Furini (1600-1642), Florence, is a great acquisition. Another of the galleries contains an engaging and illuminating history of the Polish Soldier from 1914 to 1945 with some striking original material relating to the Second World War. The prehistory of south eastern Poland is well re-created in the “Past Unearthed” section. The city deserves great credit for assembling such an homage to its past and displaying it in an easy to experience setting. A better multi lingual brochure explaining the individual pieces would be very useful. An hour long visit should cover the galleries which are located on two floors of the fine old building. You won’t be overwhelmed by this museum but it is a great starting place to look through an open window or two into Rzeszow’s past.

Home to some stunningly poor art
May 2019 • Friends
The principal requirement for getting on the walls here (for the last two centuries) appears to be a total lack of technical painterly ability. That's when you can actually see the elementary errors in the (perhaps wisely) gloomy lighting. We were the only visitors and were followed the whole way at 10 paces by the gallery attendant. Not that we were contemplating stealing an artwork. Truly dreadful

Lots of art and interesting artefacts

We were about 45 minutes here, however admission as very cheap. A number of the paintings had the literal English translation but unless you know your Polish art and history it was difficult to get the most from the visit. Perhaps it’s only aimed at Polish tourist and school groups but if there was enhanced information and translation an increased admission would be perfectly acceptable. Worth a visit

Lovely big collection of artwork and historic uniforms (mainly military). Also a prehistoric section with skeletons, pottery, early tools etc.... Virtually no English signage or descriptions unfortunately but still worth a visit.

Excellent Museum

District or Regional museum do not do this museum justice. The museum has a fabulous collection of old paintings and artefacts.

The staff at the museum are very attentive and knowledgeable on the collections within the museum. Well worth the entrance fee to this surprising mueseum.

unique in many ways

This museum, located in a former monastery, is special mostly because of its collection of paintings. There are some hidden gems by famous Polish artists in the upstairs Polish paintings exhibit, but this exhibit also includes some relatively little known names (Feliks Hanusz, Wladyslaw Czahorski, Hipolit Lipinski, Wincenty Wodzinowski, Erno Erb, Henryk Uziemblo, Iwan Trusz). The collection of foreig artists includes mostly unknown names. Where will you go to see van Diepenbeeck, Snayers, Todeschini, Francisco Giuseppe Casanova (the brother of THE Casanova), Jan van Gool, Johann Heinrich Roos, de Hamilton, Ruthart, Wutky or d'Arthois? They are all of different quality. Unfortunately, some of the paintings are displayed in such a way that during some parts of the day it is to bright in the room to actually see them.
The museum also has an archeological section and a section devoted to Polish Legions from the WWI and Polish Army in the UK from the WWII. There are temporary exhibits as well. Altogether, a very good place to visit.

Good to see all the old painting of people from long ago and to see the old ceilings decorated so beautifully on a par with Michael Angelo.

Old monastery
May 2016 • Family
Didn't go in this time. This old monastery building hosts a district museum. Exhibits everything what's got anything to do with Rzeszów - from archeology through all armed uprisings and wars to art galeries. But even if you don't want to go in - it's still a great building and it will definitelly draw your attention when wandering around Rzeszów.
