This museum offers a nice collection of Polish and other European paintings, it struck me as an alternate version of Louvre. They have a tour guide who walks you through all details in fluent English. You're also introduced to the fact that a lot of the museum's collection was stolen by Nazis during the second world war. Next time I... More

Love this museum - looking forward to coming back. I didn't know any Polish artists before coming here. I didn't know anything about their collection either. With surprise and joy I found out that Polish art in the beginning of 20th century may be characterised as a late impressionism with a light touch of romantism. Some are masterpieces. he portrait...

I was favorably impressed by the depth of their collection. Emphasis is on Polish artists. I don't think I had heard of any of them before but some excellent works, especially the impressionists. They also have a couple of French impressionist works alongside the Poles. Also a small but good collection of Italian medieval and Renaissance as well as Spanish.... More

I was here last week and I wish I had time to make several trips over a few days. It's a lot bigger than expected and I spent hours on the Polish art. I was seriously impressed by this place. The Polish art was refreshing and the rooms with Dutch/Flemish art and Italian art were great too. Admission is super... More

Not the most original museum in terms of set-up but its contemporary art collection contained a couple of impressive paintings by Polish artists.
