  • the Museum contains collections of art, painting and sculpture, but also audiovisual, exhibitions, permanent, temporary, associated with the history of Silesia. An extremely attractive place, that also provides access to the window, overlooking the panorama of Katowice. The buildings form a museum attraction in its own right.

  • There is no in Poland such a Museum, as the WORLD CUP considering the complex. Visit the institution if you want to see the Museum other than all. And that's it. Just behind it are the three dots. Same Exposition is screwed. Nothing in memory. I did not understand what the author had in mind. The history of Upper Silesia or there is no beginning, or a string. There are a few steps that I think are not related. Given the vastness of space, the history of Silesia is pushed here. Silesian Museum should focus on the history of Upper Silesia, and does not present the painting at the turn of history. Multimedia is also ridiculous. One word for connoisseurs of history (real connoisseurs, who, however, do not expect to see many exhibits, because their is simply no). My kids were bored with this museum. And want to venture out and do not have to give you comedy is such places.

  • The only Museum in the premises of the old mine and not at all related to coal, however, are accents related to how coal mine. Recommend Gallery of Polish painting and the history of Upper Silesia. "Gorolom" ruminant origin falls!!

  • Great museum of Silesia, its people and culture. Very well made exhibition containing art, fashion and how people lived over decades. Not only pictures, videos and text is used but also real models of technology and industry as well. If you spend some time in Katowice, this definitely needs to be on your list.
  • Uuper floor was boring. Lot of paintings. Lot of them were "modern art" which understand only people on drugs. When you will ho one floor lower there are very nice interactive expositions. And I believe lot of people will like it. Parking is free
  • Cool museum, very interesting exhibitions. Big place because it is build in the coil mine. Also there is interesting game at the lowest level.
  • Excellent Polish art, especially modern. We are going back to see the rest of the exhibitions tomorrow. And very nice food in the Bistro.
  • A great museum! I was very impressed by it, from the moment I entered the amazing building I was intrigued. All the paintings and artwork were amazing, as well as the ground floor with all the history of Silesia. Highly recommended from someone who isn't always interested in museums.
