This small museum has had a makeover and is now known as The Szolayski House (Kamienica Szolayskich). It still houses information and paintings by Wyspianski but also has the household effects of Wislawa Szymborska who is known as the grand dame of poetry, she passed away in 2012. Free on Sundays. The exhibition is now called Forever Young Poland and it's art around 1900. Upstairs is where the art is, plenty of paintings including Wyspianski's self portrait. Well worth a visit.

Stanisław Wyspiański recived his introduction to art from painter Jan Matejko who often visited the house of his aunt.
The museum displays divided into several rooms a permanent exhibition, showing work Wyspiański as one of the greatest and most versatile artists of the Young Pololand. The museum focus is on the presentation of versatility Wyspiański: painter, architect, art designer, editor, and finally, playwright and director.

Seriously, how the hell didn't I know about this master modernist artist before - the equal if not superior of Toulouse-Lautrec. The museum dedicated to his life and work, just off the market square, is basic but quiet and very intimate, nothing grand, pretentious and overwhelming, just a simple space and Wyspianski's extraordinary paintings and other works. Only 8 PLN entrance and huge collection, easy to spend an hour there.
