Czartoryski Museum - Review

The collection was founded in 1796 by Princess Isabela Czartoryska. Its most famous exhibit is Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, Lady with an Ermine. There are treasures here from the Wawel Cathedral, the Royal Castle, and Polish noble families. But other, nearly as awesome treasures included:

  • The books of the Duke of Brabant, Tadeusz Czacki, and Stanislaw August Poniatowski.
  • Shakespeare's chair
  • Fragments from what are allegedly the graves of Romeo and Juliet.
  • Relics of Abelard and Heloise
  • Relics of Petrarch and his Laura

Sadly, many of these were scattered in the 1831 November uprising. Still you can still see Raphael’s, Portrait of a Young Man; The Mother of God with the Child; and a 14th century Madonna with Child triptych.

  • i am really not happy I made a long travel to see this museum. it is close for renovation and on Google it is open I live in a house I France where the Czartorisky previously live It was very interesting for to see the correlation .

  • Lovely museum that saved me from the endless queue at the Main Art Museum where the Dame with the Ermine was collocated. The museum is currently under restoration but it's really worth a visit for its eclectic collection of different items: from canvases to treasure chests, armours and religious objects.

  • One of the best in cracow

  • This is a biased review :)

  • closed due to renovation
