The museum is very large, you can spend almost all day around it.
The museum is located in two buildings. The old headquarters from 1904 shows on the ground floor the Polish Art Gallery 16-18 century with a unique collection of coffin portraits and the Gallery of Medieval Art. In the basement of the old building is a collection of the Roman imperial portrait unique in Polish collectionsand ancient art gallery. On the first floor there are collections of Western European painting, with the only painting by Claude Monet in Poland ''Beach in Pourville''. The new wing exhibits works of the Gallery of Polish Art since the time of enlightenment by the arts of romanticism, academism, impressionism, symbolism - including the largest collection of paintings by Jacek Malczewski in Poland - paintings by Olga Boznańska, Wojciech Weiss, Witold Wojtkiewicz, Stanisław Wyspiański, Leon Wyczółkowski, Piotr Potworowski, Władysław Podkowiński, Jan Matejko. Fantastic permanent exhibition. An amazing collection of paintings and sculptures from ancient times to the present day. Huge art collection, it is worth booking a few hours for sightseeing, because there is really something to watch. Free admission on Saturdays.

Amazing museum housed in a beautiful building. Gives a very deep look into Polish art through the ages. Great collection, clearly displayes in a structured fashion. Polish art in the best possible form.

The local Poznan national museum, http://www.mnp.art.pl/en has a fine collection of older paintings (including a Monet, a Boticelli and a number of other masters) and often interesting well-curated exhibitions like the present Titian/Veronese/Tiepolo-exhibition. Free entrance for the normal exhibition on Saturdays, btw.

The English website is not updated properly - at least at the moment - but don't let that scare you aware.

Photography is allowed without flash. (Very good, btw!)

First, this is an ART MUSEUM, as others have noted. I consider myself knowledgeable about Western European art in general; not an expert, but with broad superficial knowledge. But I was blown away by the quality and quantity of paintings I had never heard of by artists I have never heard of that rival much of what is in the Louvre or the Tate. If you like art, particularly of the 19th and 20th century, this is a *don't miss* in Poznan. Reasonable prices *BUT CASH ONLY* and in local currency. Fortunately there are ATMs not too far away.

On my first visit I went to see their Monet, only to learn that it had been stolen. During our years in Poznan, the Monet was recovered, so I did finally get to see it. In the end, it was disappointing. There were other pieces I enjoyed more, maybe it was one of his early works.

They have a huge collection of Polish art in an interesting building.

I have been meaning to go to the museum for a long time, as I live in Poznan - finally I went, on a Saturday when the entrance to the museum is free... I am so glad I didn't pay!! I was very interested in the Polish artists art (luckily I did some research before going because there isn't any there for visitors except the names). I heard that there was also a monet but when I went there were a lot of renovations being done and the upstairs was closed - when i tried to ask one of the women who worked there for some directions (she was sat lazily on a chair doing nothing btw) she just grunted back without even looking at me "CLOSED"... nice... As we went to the toilet before leaving we noticed an available lift, so we decided to get in it and see where it would take us! We found a whole other area with more classical art... which was surprising because there was NO information at all about this, despite all the renovations, no one offered help and there was no map available! I'm so happy we went exploring!
But the worst thing we experienced on that day was the exhibition of installation - which I hate, personally, but was imposed on all the 'secret' part of the museum because of the screens that were installed in inappropriate places (including the classical arts section!) and in the central part of the museum, so the soundtrack/NOISE could be heard everywhere and completely destroyed my whole visit... my only question - WHY???!!

There are two building, the new and the old museum. In the new part mainly Polish painters with excellent works. We found some new names and paintings, what we have to learn. In the old part European art - Spanish, German, French, Flamish - practically all old masters. IT IS A MUST VISIT FOR ART LOVERS!

I often visit the art museum and the most profound paintings are located at the uppermost floor- polish style paintings from late 1800s-early 1900s in all it's glory, with paintings by Malczewski, Axentowicz and Wyspiański. There is a section with old german, dutch and italian paintings which are also nice. On the base floor there is a bookshop and they also have prints (in various sizes) if you would like to pick up even a little postcard of your favorite work as a souvenir.
