Manggha was the penname of Feliks Jasiensk, a collector of Japanese Art, who donated his life collection to the National Museum in Krakow. But the collection was so large there was no place to exhibit it. Half a century later, an amateur filmmaker, Andrzej Wajda, donated the entirety of his winnings from a Japanese film award to the National Museum so that a museum for this collection could be created. Japanese collaboration helped to build to the building. Thus, various features of the architecture and the garden are complementary to the style of the arts in Japan. In addition to the 6500-item art collection, the center also organizes temporary exhibitions. If you really want to go for an in-depth experience the center provides courses on the Japanese tea ceremony and the language. the museum is also the headquarters of the city Bonsai Club. Sometimes there are classical music and jazz concerts.

Never been to a Japanese museum before and certainly didn't expect to find one in Poland! The place is nicely located along the river and the exhibitions were quite interesting. The cafeteria is a nice place for coffee with a great view!
Great experience, more "modern" than I would expect, a thing to note it's that all expositions are temporary. If I could change one thing I would add some historical pieces from Japanese culture like iconic kimonos and other articles of clothing and various traditional swords.
A beautiful place in a beautiful setting. The museum is really nice, all the staff is very kind and friendly and the café-restaurant is a dream. Not only it offers a beautifully curated choice of food and drinks, but it is also vegan friendly. And it has a stunning view of the Wawel. Highly recommended.
This place left me speechless. If you’re a fan of anything Japanese, Manggha Centre is a must see. Beautiful building decorated in a very modern minimalist way. Three different exhibitions. Beautiful view on the river and Wawel castle. One of the top museums in Krakow.
A fitting architecture enclosing an interesting collection, the manggha centre suffers in terms of raw quantity of exposed art. Still a suggestive stop on our tour of Krakow
