The two storey Szolayski family house was built in the 17th century and was expanded over the next few centuries. In the 2000s this was the location of the Stanislaw Wyspianski Muzeum. Now, though the name has changed, the original collection remains here. Wyspianski’s personal artefacts, sketches, last self-portrait and other artworks are in exhibit. See the reconstructed meeting room of the Polish Arts Society. There’s also a reconstruction of his workshop from the time he was working on the Krakow Franciscan Church. This is a brilliant and well thought-out look into one of Poland's most influential intellectual artists. The museum organizes lectures, concert and theater performances. Remember to check out the souvenir shop in the cafe.

Small art museum, rotating exhibits. May 2018 had 2 exhibits. Basement exhibit an avant garde Polish painter. Upstairs exhibit was a variety of Polish modern art, almost all paintings. Many abstract, a few landscapes and still lives. Very little info posted in English.
2 very nice exhibitions: modern art and wislawa szymborska. LIKE
One of my favourite museums + Szymborska's drawer exhibition especially recommended.
The exhibition The Power of the Avant-Garde is amazing.
Only the Symborska exhibit was open when we went, but this was decent enough.
