The renaissance castle nothing special but the Icon collection the best in Poland!
Aug 2020 • Family
Some staggering religious works here taken from the Ruthenian churches in the region. I particularly like the Uniate-style crosses as well as the simply carved but very powerful wooden statues.

This was a very interesting part of Polish history and the exhibition reflects this. There are also some rather impressive portraits of the Polish nobility and monarchy. A must see...

Must see place in Podkarpacie region
Jul 2020
I really liked the castle. It was renovated few years ago, which you can spot right away. The castle looks really nice, especially from outside. Muzeum inside is adjusted to people on wheelchairs as you can find elevators and toilets adjusted to their needs. Inside you can find the exhibition of Zbigniew Beksiński and Icon Gallery. In my opinion, both exhibitions could be more modern, but because I love the works of Beksiński I won't complain much. For sure it is a must-see place if you are visiting the region.

A lot of old icons and intriguing Beksiński's paintings

For me, icons were more interesting, but maybe others will be interested in Beksinski's work. The old, rebuilt castle serves as an old and new art museum - a great idea.

Great collection of Beksinski
Aug 2018 • Family
I’m not a big fan of icons although the collection in Sanok is impressive.
The main attraction for us was the exposition of Beksinski’s works. Great, interesting works. A must.

Lovely setting
May 2018 • Friends
I arrived late in the day so the museum was closed,but the scenery and setting is beautiful views of the countryside and river. The town of Sanok itself is very interesting and the church there is very ornate. There were lots of stalls selling food drink and ice cream in the market square,but as this was a special day first communion for children I don't know if this happens every week

My favourite painter gallery
Jan 2018 • Family
Sanok historical museum is located in interesting building, but the best views are inside. There are quite a lot icons and liturgical objects from Orthodox and Greek Catholic churches from different places in Poland, and some paintings, mostly XX century art, but there is also the biggest gallery of my favourite painter - Zdzisław Beksiński with his best works.

Worth a visit if in the area
Sep 2016 • Couples
Visited here recently and was pleasantly surprised! Everything written in English and a mix of things to see. Extensive collection of baginski if you are into art - it's quite dark work but interesting nonetheless. I wouldn't go out of my way for it though!
