Krakow National Museum - Review

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.

Krakow National Museum, Krakow Reviews

  • Unfortunately, I cannot review the exhibitions of this museum, as I didn’t even manage to get in and see it. I do understand that today (August the 15th) is a national holiday for Poland. However, I am not Polish and I didn’t know about this when planning my trip. There was no information whatsoever about the change in opening hours on the official website of the museum. So I went to the museum, expecting it to be open. After 20 minutes of waiting with a big crowd of people, an angry security man came out, arguing with the locals and pointing at a very small sign that said the museum is closed for the holiday. It was tiny in Polish, even smaller in English. Considering we already had to pay for expensive parking, I was pretty upset. There was no way of preparing for this despite my best effort to do my planning right. What angers me even more is that the museum is closed on Monday (every Monday) and today on Wednesday too. This inconvenience complicates things not only for tourists but for locals who want to enjoy the day off as well... Overall a horrible experience.

  • Very well prepared exhibition, nice coffee and refreshment. Just the queue to get the tickets was a bit slow. There is the possibility to buy the tickets online, however we can not load the page properly. And toilets lacks fresh air. But the exhibition was awesome anyway.

  • Museum has nice exhibitions but it is confusing. You need to buy different tickets to different exhibitions so it's worth looking up which exhibitions you wish to see well in advance. At the moment it also houses the Leonardo painting "Lady with an Ermine" that's worth seeing for sure. It is located near the old town so it's easy to get to. Because of the confusing and uncomfortable design of the museum, it does not get more stars from me.

  • Big with a lot of interesting old artefacts to look at. The paintings are a bit boring in my opinion, but amongst them were some nice window glass art. In general a nice place to visit after one have been some days in the old city.

  • Beautiful, classical museum near the city centre, with some incredible well laid out special exhibitions. Worth a visit to enjoy some exceptional Polish and international art.
