Everybody knows Icons, but the story behind them and the different influences are interesting. Several religions have used this way to show the religeous history.

The museum is small, but has wonderful exhibition. Of course icons are famous and fabulous, but it also features history as well as the largest collection of Zdzislaw Beksinski - famous Polish artist.

Icons from the 17th and 18th cent. are mostly low quality: too much Western influence. In Sanok museum they have a high quality collection of 15th and 16th cent. icons.

We visited the museum with a group and had a guide - it was very interesting and beautiful even for someone who saw many icons in many museums. For people nee to this - better to have a guide

For art buffs like us, this museum was a delight. The icon section is very interesting and the contemporary artists on display are not to be missed. Excellent restoration of the castle itself.
