I was surprised by the amount of icons. Nicely presented, very interesting to see. Icons are located on few floors so some stairs climbing is necessary (I don't know if there's a lift to be honest - I wasn't looking for any).

You have to options in Bieszczady: go and see around many places all of the old Ortodox and Catholic churches or go here, in Sanok and see many icons. Both options are good to choose. Museum in Sanok is the quickest one.

Everybody knows Icons, but the story behind them and the different influences are interesting. Several religions have used this way to show the religeous history.

Great gallery with the biggest collection of Beksinski's art - paintings, sculptures, photography and more. It was worth coming here from Warsaw to see it! Another advantage was the guide we hired in the museum. He said lots of interesting things and showed us other parts of museum as well (including the huge icons collection). I highly recommend it to anyone at least mildly interested in Beksinski.

You can lear a lot about Sanok history. All in Polish and English language. The new wing with Beksinski paintings was fantastic, high standard. Must see if you in Sanok

The museum is small, but has wonderful exhibition. Of course icons are famous and fabulous, but it also features history as well as the largest collection of Zdzislaw Beksinski - famous Polish artist.

Icons from the 17th and 18th cent. are mostly low quality: too much Western influence. In Sanok museum they have a high quality collection of 15th and 16th cent. icons.

Perhaps only of interest to those with a serious interest this is a fascinating museum where Catholic and Orthodox icons meet.

Enjoyed the hundreds of religious icons on display from the past centuries. So glad this museum is there as many of the Eastern Orthodox Churches were closed in Poland after WWII -1947. Ironic just off the parking lot of this museum is an Orthodox Church, most after WWII were converted to Roman Catholic Churches or demolished. If fact one church in the present day Lesko cemetery about 13 km from Sanok was blow up and the huge concrete slabs still rise upward from the ground.
