Sama lokalizacja muzeum jest już atrakcją. Umiejscowienie jego oddziału w dawnej Kopalni Katowice to już odwaga! Pomysł super! Dla ludzi z odległych stron Polski i innych krajów to stanowi już atrakcj... read more »The same location is already a museum attraction. Site its branch in Katowice old mine is already the courage! Super idea! For people from distant sites Polish and other countries it is already a landmark in its own right, and I think that Silesians themselves too! I personally enjoyed the part of the exhibition showing the life in times of PRL. My childhood, I could go back in time, to see the wall, chairs and other equipment housing from those years, not so distant to me. In this museum you can see a history of your Dziady, our and our grandchildren. Our Museum in Katowice in Katowice is a Polish and Silesian Museum, Our! After exploring, you can lift on a vantage point and admire the beautiful, green, regenerated areas and Katowice!show original
mówię oczywiście o nowym budynku przy NOSp-ie. Malarstwo może nie porywa nieczułych na sztuke ale reszta sal bardzo ciekawa, także dla dzieci, zwłaszcza wystawa dotycząca dziejów Polski.I'm talking of course about the new building at the ITO--ie. The painting may not kidnap unfeeling on art but the rest of the rooms very interesting, also for children, especially the exhibition on the history of Polish.show original
Spodziewałam się, że będzie wspaniałe, ale po wejściu "wow". Uwielbiam sztukę, więc zbiory na pierwszym poziomie były ucztą dla oczu. Niesamowite jest to, że każde dzieło można oglądać z bardzo bliska... read more »I expected that to be great, but after the entry into "wow". I love the art, so the collections on the first level were a feast for the eyes. Amazing is that each work can be viewed from very close up, without known from other museums and exhibitions, firewalls that keep the viewer in a "safe" distance. After the banquet we descend one level below and here begins the journey through centuries of history. Everything you touch, sink into the story. At the end of modern art and a test, do you know the "ślonsko godka" and do you remember anything from this lesson. Who is still little, can play in eurobiznes Silesia, go for a jackdaw or buy souvenirs. It's all underground and on the surface of the ... an observation tower, a restaurant and other attractions. Book a minimum of 3 hours. (without this, what on the surface).show original
