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.

You can see this museum, but it is not obligatory at all. Collecions of Polish medals are pretty nice and from time to time there is quite intersting temporary exhibitions, but mostly is boring. In case of any updates about exhibitions please look http://www.muzeum.rzeszow.pl/wystawy

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.

In the leaflet “Rzeszów Tourist Attractions”, which is supplied by the Tourist Office, this Museum is incidentally mentioned as an appendage of the Holy Cross Church and of the Lyceum school. Actually, I wonder why and how the Holy Cross Church and the Lyceum could arouse the interest of a tourist, whereas the Museum is certainly worth attention.

First of all, don’t be mislead by the belittling name of this museum (“District Museum”) which seems to evoke narrow cultural horizons and limited scope. On the contrary, the museum presents a profusion of paintings (I have not counted them, but they probably are far more than a hundred) dating from the early 16th century up to the 20th century. Many of them are from Polish artists, but there are also several Dutch, Flemish and Italian works. Although the quality of the paintings is not sublime, the overall presentation and the setting are attractive, since the exhibition is installed along the corridors of a former convent (presumably of the 17th century). The museum also contains additional exhibits: a collection of prehistoric artefacts, and an interesting documentation of the liberation wars carried out in Poland between 1914 and 1945. There is also an ancient pharmacy, but it was closed at the time of my visit. In my opinion it is possible to spend one pleasant hour or so in this museum.

The museum is located in the elegant “3 Maja” street. It has a rather irregular opening schedule, mostly from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and is closed on Saturday and Monday. Closing the museum in the early afternoon may result in a comfortable working schedule for the staff, but is certainly a big inconvenience for the tourists. Admission is 8 Złoty (about 2 €), with reduction to 6 Złoty for the elders. A useful and illustrated leaflet is distributed to all visitors. It is allowed to take photos: most of the paintings are well lighted by daylight, otherwise an efficient lighting system makes up for. There are toilets. It is difficult, if not impossible, to communicate in English.

The museum is rich in  interesting paintings by European and Polish artists. I will definitely visit it again.
One hour will be enough to visit the museum.

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

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.
