  • I think at the beginning that I am not a fan of museums, so by reading reviews and hearing so much ochów and achów I thought that go to this type of activities. ... Unfortunately not yet this time. Definitely noteworthy is a permanent exhibition about the history of Upper Silesia, impressive, presented in an interesting way. There are some interesting temporary exhibitions, so it was for example. in the case of installation of Dani Karavana ... Reflection/reflection/אָפּשפּיגלונג. For me, however, the most impressive is doing the same on the outside environment .... a modern and beautiful. Great shows you how you can boost the industrial. For sure I will come back even on the lookout towers.

  • A little skeptical at the entrance, I must admit that I came out very pleased. If you like the story in detail, you will pass without difficulty 3 or 4 hours, at least. Dziękuję szwagierka, great pomysł. The presentation is the same level as that of the Museum of the uprising in Warsaw for those who know. No audio guide however but excellent reviews along the way with a video system in 4 languages, no french text cedi said: Polish, German, English and, which deserves to be mentioned, the 'real' Silesian, the latter available in audio and more. Many photographs, objects too (the Neolithic-> 90s) accompanied by detailed explanatory texts (PL/GE/UK). The framework general, inside and out, in addition, is representative of that Poles arrive to do their Brownfields. If you go to Katowice, I really recommend it. The Museum also houses accessories temporary exhibitions; so plan some time for a visit 'uncomfortable'. PS: we went there on a Tuesday, the entry there was more free.

  • Outstanding experience. If you want to do all exhibitions, allow at least 4-5 hours. The one on the history of Silesia took me 3+ hours; it's extremely informative, interesting and well made. Great permanent collection of 19 and 20 century Polish art. The architecture & design of the place are fabulous.
  • Well designed and never boring - a very good place if you want learn/show to someone the history and culture of Silesia without having to study pages and pages of books or wikipedia. Very interactive, very modern and equipped with all you need if you visit with children or if you are on a wheelchair. The area around the underground museum is a great place for a walk - both during the day and at night. I recommend to visit on Tuesday - it's free! You will need 2 - 3h to fully enjoy all of it.
  • Fabulous modern museum, nicely organized in an entertaining way. Huge collection of Polish paintings that can easily consume few hours to explore. History of Silesia region, some theatre costumes, example of typical Polish apartment from communist times. This place is worth to visit even if you are not planning to stay in Katowice.
  • Great museum with a variety of exhibits including art and history. Exhibits are expertly currated with good accessibility accommodation.
  • The permanent exhibit about the history of the region is great for adults and children alike. Temporary exhibitions are always worth the visit
