    We visited and had the tour. The guide was knowledgeable and answered all the groups questions. The tour was about an hour and then we visited the free exhibit below. There were steps and stairs to get to and around the tour.

    Also on site are toilets, a small café and gift shop.

    It was one of the highlights of our holiday

    "Muzeum Książąt Czartoryskich" (Princes Czartoryski Museum) opened in 1878, and it is now a division of the National Museum in Kraków.

    The most renowned painting at the Museum is Leonardo da Vinci's "Lady with an Ermine", and this painting only is worth a visit to the museum.
    Other artists represented include Rembrandt, Hans Holbein the Younger, Jacob Jordaens, Luca Giordano, Pieter Brueghel the Younger, Albrecht Dürer, Dieric Bouts, Joos van Cleve, Lorenzo Lotto, Lucas Cranach the Younger, Lorenzo Monaco, Andrea Mantegna, Palma il Vecchio, Jan Matejko and many others.

    In this museum you can find not only paintings, but also engravings, drawings, statues, applied art objects, furniture, miniatures, weapons and armors, coins and medals, archaeological findings, and more.

    Beautiful building, nice staff, but I just don't get contemporary art. some weird things fro my brain and after Schindlers factory, it was too much to make it work to interpret all the art.

    The National museum in Krakow is the largest museum in Poland and has a substantial permanent collection that includes paintings and sculpture, plus militaria as well as decorative arts and crafts.
    The building is not far outside the Old Town and is served by quite a few bus routes as well as trams 15 and 18. We were able to get there in a few minutes on the number 18 tram which passed our hotel.
    Choosing to see the permanent collection we were certainly not disappointed.
    Starting with the 19th century painters of a movement called “Young Poland”. We were amazed and delighted by the very high standard of paintings by artists that we were unfamiliar with. This group of painters were working at about the same time as the French Impressionists and a lot of similarities can been seen in their work. These Polish artists produced images that were in my view on a par with their more famous contemporaries. The same could also be said of more modern works that were from periods such as Cubism and Abstract art. Seeing the quality of Polish art was great. The collection also then featured some excellent modern sculpture before moving on to other rooms that displayed military objects and 19th century women’s clothing and furniture, plus decorative arts such as jewellery, clocks , ceramics and glass and some musical instruments.
    Truly a splendid museum and art gallery where you could spend hours browsing through the many faceted displays.

    Museum was next door to our hotel. Well worth a visit. To see most of his work displayed well in urban rooms was fun.The paintings all well documented and described. Listing when and where they first appeared in the world. A fun afternoon looking at a very talented artists work. The gift shop was well priced with a good selection of items to purchase.

    This gallery in the heart of Krakow old town, i.e. on the south side of the Rynek main square, has as its name suggests small international exhibitions, currently 3 months of Hungarian Art Nouveau Ceramics. Previously for example there was Max Ernst, Scandinavian folk craft, and then others of that ilk.
