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.

Warsaw National Museum Reviews & Ratings
Great museum. Nice polish painting, statues are artistic. Ticket entry. For normal adult it costs 20zł (polish currency). Totally worth it. Monday it closed.
Great museum. Amazing mediaeval art gallery. Very good presentation of Polish painters. Definitely worth visiting. Norman ticket for adults costs 20 zł, audio guide 10 zł. Elevators for disabled people, great gift shop with interesting books both in Polish and English. I guess you need at least 4 full hours to fully check everything. Pros: 1) great visual art from classical styles and periods to postmodern 2) availability, prices, audio guide explanations and exhibition design 3) representation of Polish art Problems: 1) at some levels the floor squeaks too much; 2) general Polish attitude towards strangers; 3) weird map.
Today we went and it was free admission! There are three levels, masters at the top, impressionist snd then modern. There’s also planes outside in a garden. There’s a bookstore on the second floor as well. It had a bunch of lovely pieces and I loved the tickets how you could find the pieces in the museum. I wish there was better directions of which way to go. Otherwise a hit!
Beautiful architecture, well lit in areas of importance and full of information! Worth going.
I love the Polish art on display esp. the historical works. At least this fits the bill as a “real” museum with genuine displays and all.
