This is a pretty nice museum with lots of Polish Art in the upstairs level of the Cloth Hall. There are great views of the Market Square. It's definitely worth a visit. Lots of important works of Polish art.

Housed upstairs in the cloth hall, the museum houses many interesting works of art. Stop for a beer in the second floor Cafe and watch the activities below in the market square.

Situated inside the Cloth Hall, the museum had a fantastic range of art work by Polish painters. The terrace and terrace cafe also have a stunning view over the main market square below. Wouldn't recommend for young kids but definitely worth a visit for adults.

Relatively small museum. Only 4 halls. It's great, because you will not get tired from the long exploration. And collections! Incredible! I could have watched and do nothing more. I have fallen in love with Polish Symbolism, Expressionism and Impressionism. Great pieces of works.

An amazing jewel like collection of some stunning art! Only four rooms, each with a different theme but truly awe-inspiring. Fabulous opportunity to get really up close to master pieces (none are behind glass or barriers) to see the texture of the brush strokes. Some...More

There are some artists in this museum which should be better known, and were they French, say, they'd be famous. The best rooms are the ones first to the left when you enter and then the one to the right. Allow about 1 to 1...More

Wonderful experience. I would imagine a family visit would be worthwhile. Children can get involved with all the interactive features.

blown away by a great collection of really haunting art works. magnificent paintings on a massive scale, haunting images of eastern europe, great character studies.....i found the whole exhibition really absorbing.....even if you don't have much time its worth the 9 zloty entrance fee.

I agree with Andy B, you'll find that most places will be closed on 01 January, 31 Dec there will be lots of parties and I'm guessing that the next day everyone is too tired and/or hung over to do any sightseeing. However if... More
