This museum houses a beautiful collection of ecclesiastical art from the 12th-18th centuries. There are quite a few wood and stone carvings but the painted altarpieces are truly spectacular. Worth a visit even if you only have an hour to spare.

Amazing art and sculpture even if you are, like me, not religious. I was lucky enough (in February) to have the place to myself and saw some of the most lovely 'stuff'. Give that most of this art was produced hundreds of years ago and...More

All depends on the kind of museum you like. I am very interested in medieval art and, consequently, I found this museum absolutely fascinating. It has a rich collection of altars, religious paintings and statues. Currently, there is also an exhibition of Orthodox Polish art,...More

This smallish museum/gallery holds many religious related paintings, sculptures and relics from Krakow and Poland. Because of the age and condition of the artefacts the lighting is very subdued. As I recall, the exhibits are all labelled in Polish and English. Entry may be free...More

In this museum, which is located in an old Bishop's palace, you can learn of Polish medieval art up until the Baroque. It is displayed in a chronological order with good labels for information. Pleasing display. The building and artworks seem to be recently restored.

I was surprised to find so many exhibits so nicely... exposed. Interiors of the museum seem to stay in tune with the art collection they contain. I really liked it, although I can't really say I'm a huge medieval arts fan.

The museum isn't exactly huge but features an amazing collection of mostly devotional art from the Gothic and renaissance periods. There isn't only a plenty to see but much of what is there is amazing. Also, the palace itself with its carved wooden ceilings and...More
