The museum’s main collections comprise of ancient art, polish art, numismatics (coin collections), applied art and oriental art and all of these are quite extensive. The museum underwent some display changes recently, when the collections were rearranged by theme rather than by historical period.
Of special interest are the Faras Gallery, which displays early Christian Art and the Medieval Art Gallery of sculptures and goldwork from regions historically significant to Poland.

Think of the Metropolitan Museum in NYC or the National Gallery in London and you've got a familiar flavour of what to expect at the National Museum in Warsaw. There's a range of high quality art from the last 500 years or so, with some preference towards Dutch painters. There are at least three floors to cover in the large building with wings so you'll do well to reserve half a day to see as much as you can. There's a free cloakroom to store coats and bags either side of the entrance, and if you're lucky you can get free entry on the first Tuesday of the month.
Excellent art gallery with a fine permanent collection and interesting special exhibits. Occasional musical performances which are well worth attending. Heard three experts performing Gregorian Chants last year that completely reshaped my understanding of medieval music. This is a first rate big city museum. Photo is from a temporary exhibit of Józef Brandt... really worth seeing!
Visited on a Tuesday and was told it was free, yet other days you pay... Lucky :) This museum is absolutely fantastic with jaw dropping paintings. Was truly impressed with some. Would highly recommend spending 2 or 3 hours here to appreciate some world class paintings and other interesting stuff.
We really enjoyed this museum. It didn't have a lot of big name artists but the collection was interesting and varied. It's a little off the beaten path but definitely worth seeing. It's free to enter on Tuesdays.
It is nice. I especially liked the Sudan ancirnt church relics from Faras which a Polish archaeologist rescued from the Aswan dam floods to come. Too many exhibits are outside the basic ticket though. It makes no sense to buy given that the price difference to a ticket with the special features is not big. They shouldn't sell the basic one it is stupid.
