  • Free Sunday. Interesting Museum with a lot of historic objects, beautiful collection. The essential of the moment is the Leonardo da Vinci "The Lady with the ermine".

  • We went to museums, especially the Lady with an ermine, a visit was worth it. I recommend to come right after the opening, before the Museum fills up the group tour and school tours. We had enough time to get a picture of calm. Other museum exhibitions are interesting, good facilities, refreshments-clean toilets. Entrance fees very reasonable.

  • I've been visiting this museum on and off for 20 years and it feels like it has hit a bit of a low point. Exhibition prices are higher than ever and each show carries a separate fee. The exhibitions can struggle to fill the vast rooms. Good venue for large touring exhibits that tend to be cheaper than in other European countries and the security measures are not too painful.
  • A must see in this beautiful city, not only for the Lady with an Ermine. It talks for all polish people, representing their fascinating culture and history with paintings, books, very rare objects exc. I don't wanna spoiler anything, come and see!
  • Quite nice. Permanent exhibition was free. Entrance note said all days 8:00-20:00, free entrance so I don't know which is right (Google maps seems to have a different schedule). What really did the trick for us was the space in front of the building. Really nice with lots of wooden structures for people to sit and relax and with a really cool exhibition made from wood and old Polish objects. The exhibition itself was good but only a few pieces really made it worth.
  • Fantastic museum. Leonardo is here :D but other galleries are also always worth it. Full recommendation.
  • Important place to visit. One small lack : explanations are not always clear. Beautiful pieces of Polish history.
