This review is for the 19th Century Polish Art Gallery above the Cloth Hall. Various rooms with plenty of paintings covering a large selection of Polish artists. Free on a Sunday. Some lovely paintings here and an hour well spent. When you finish you end up on the terrace which there is usually a charge for which is an added bonus as you get great views of the market square. Café up there is rather expensive.

Interesting small museum / gallery. Note, most of the reviews below are for the underground museum, which is not to be missed. This is a small gallery above the Cloth Hall in the Market Square. Great terrace view of the Market Square and cafe.

I was pleased to have the opportunity to visit this Museum which opened very recently. Walking through the Museum you see parts of life in Poland going back to thousands of years. The excavations have uncovered parts of buildings which are now covered with walk on glass, fully illuminated and with short descriptions. You have to pay a small amount to enter it but I recommend it.

Vibrant, the street food was amazing and inexpensive. The people polite with excellent English, Lots of cultural activities too, we watched an orchestral performance and operatic performance from the comfort of one of the many restaurants lining all sides of the square.

Being proud of your artwork is one thing. Being precious about average artwork is akin to saying your village hall is like Versailles. The guides were rude and bored. The rooms were poorly lit to be able to examine the art in any detail, and while disappointing in size, it was also disappointing in quality. EXCEPT for the outstanding room of Matjeko's work. (Thank the patron saint of Poland -Pope John Paul the 2nd- who seems to have a following close to idolatry) But be warned. When you get up to the gallery(NOT a museum) you will then be asked to return to remove the dressing room a floor below, to remove coats and hats etc- BUT then when you go up to the gallery again, you will be asked for your ticket- CUE another trip downstairs to collect said ticket. Somehow all of this is never mentioned to a tourist who is paying to see a great deal of mostly village art. But back to Matjeko- an artist of verve and passion, his paintings were an example of real Polish talent unlike the Bruegel like guides.
