At The National Museum in Warsaw, see the largest Polish painting, "Battle of Grunwald" by Jan Matejko, and the largest European collection of artifacts of the Nubian culture. The museum features about 830,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, illustrations, photographs, numismatic items, and objects of applied arts. Do not miss the medieval art collection, including intricate altarpieces and painted wooden statues from all over Poland. Look for the paintings reclaimed after being stolen during World War II, such as "Jewish Woman Selling Oranges" and "Black Woman." Rest in a cafe or on one of the benches of an inside courtyard with a fountain. A park behind the building once served as prince's gardens.

  • This is the place that every Pole should visit. The art of the greatest Polish painters. More than 3 hours.

  • A huge Museum, all to view one day impossible, Bo does not have enough memory for impressions and RAM for evaluation. Were in the Gallery of 20 and 21 century and medieval Gallery. On the contrast. Yes, the best was in the 19 century, IMHO. In the Tuesday free of charge, although 15 zł and so little for Europe and European Museum level.

  • We went on a Thursday with free admission, not at all but, most important shows. Very interesting is the extensive picture gallery of Polish art including, of great interest "the Jew with oranges" by Aleksander Gierymski famous Polish painter said the poet of light (we went for that matter). Outstanding on the ground floor an exhibition of religious art, mostly composed of wooden works of unprecedented beauty. Exceptional, to spare time.

  • Would describe it more as a national gallery, it has mainly paintings but very good ones.
  • I was very enjoy the visit there. There are many artwork by Polish and Central European artists.
  • Haunting and enchanting 14-16 century art housed in small quiet and darkened galleries (to preserve rather than for atmosphere). Free WiFi and a descent coffee.
  • Dla osób które lubią malarstwo i rzeźbę.
  • Half of the museum was not open. They should call here national gallery.
