Poland’s finest painter, Jan Matejko, lived in this house. Matejko has captured some of the country’s most iconic and significant moments in his paintings. Today, the house museum is a fascinating and delightful look into the mind of this mysterious man. It contains not only his art, but also his collection of furniture, interior decorations, personal artefacts, antique guns, and textiles. In addition to the permanent exhibits, the museum also organises special exhibitions and events. The staff is very charming. The house is small, so you visit should be quick, though it’s not unusual for people to want to take their times and pore over the details.

Jan Matejko was one of Poland's greatest artists. He was a painter and a designer. This is the house that he lived in and it has been restored to resemble the condition when he lived there. He was also an avid collector and many of the things he owed are on display. Of course there are quite a few of his paintings there too. It's free to visit on Sundays.
Great piece of Krakow, one of her finest artists and a good man. The tour of his house and art takes about one hour. I highly recommend.
Amazing, must see
Wasn't very special. I went because I had free time. It's free on sundays
