  • The incentive is one of my favorite places in Warsaw. Located in the Centre of the city, in a beautiful building. Amazing not only exhibitions, but the Interior. On Thursday the entrance for free.

  • Brilliant and shocking exhibitions when I went here. It doesn't even get a mention in most guides but it's worth a visit if you're interested in modern art. Cafe and restaurant too. Enthusiastic staff...  more »
  • I've been to many and I believe it is good. Naturally, a lot depends on the current exhibitions. Breakfast, air conditioning, silence, lack of crowd encourage. Kozakiewicz invites!

  • World standard for art galleries. Beautiful building. Spectacular exhibition that was the best I've ever seen, I'll never forget it.
  • Thinking this was the National gallery, we paid our 15zl to look around. Well, they should pay you to look around. What a potential load of rubbish. It's a modern art gallery with a load of old junk in it. I'm often very polarised when it comes to modern art. Something that has time and effort and skill in its making I quite like. But this gallery is much the opposite. Don't waste your money. Go on a Thursday when it's free and if you are like me won't feel as though you've wasted money and time. A nice building though. Shame about the content.
  • Great gallery. A lot depends on the temporary exhibitions, therefore I would recommend visiting it several times a year.
  • Very kind stuff inside, inspiring art exhibitions, nice interior. We will surely revisit this National Gallery of Art! Fully recommended!
  • Amazing temporary exhibitions, wonderful space...Highly recommended...For all those moaners who are saying they didn't find it that interesting maybe you should have checked the exhibitions before actually going? Great restaurant downstairs...

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
