Kazimierz Dolny is perhaps not the most famous town in Poland but it certainly is with locals and especially people from Warsaw who flock there on the weekends. It is a jewel of a town and perhaps our favourite spot in Poland. We went to this town en route through the Polish countryside as we had been told about its artistic history and there was a particular artist who had lived there and about whose work we were curious. This place was a total discovery and we would love to go back. One of the most beautiful attractions we saw was the small but spectacular museum on the main street called in English - The House of the Celej Family although there is not too much English advertising.

Before even knowing what the building was, the architecture on the outside is so remarkable that it one wonders what this place could be. Because Kazimierz Dolny has always been and still is a popular artists' colony, we were curious if there was a museum with art from the inter-war years. There are quite a few art galleries in town with current as well as more historic art.

The owner of the delightful B&B where we stayed, Hody & Crass, told us the House of the Celej Family was just around the corner and would be the place to start our visit.

It was not a disappointment but a total delight. The kind and helpful staff did not speak much English but we somehow made ourselves understood. They took us around ( no charge!) and showed us some amazing art.

This is not a large museum but the quality of the paintings and artifacts are truly world-class. We have been to many of the great museums of the world -- but this one should really be discovered. Art is very personal but for us, this was an epiphany.

For over a century Kazimierz has been a source of inspiration for Warsaw artists and this great merchant's house has a great collection of works by artists little-known outside Poland (err... unknown to me at least :)

Celej Family Home is a superb example of renaissance architecture. Youcan admire the building itself as well as the exhibition. Wonderful surroundings with art galleries and good restaurants.
