The Abbot's Palace & Museum of Modern Art
The Palace itself consists of two parts - The Old Palace, in Gothic style, dating back to the 15th century, and the New Palace, in Rococo style, dating from the early 17th century. Destroyed during WWII, but rebuilt in the 1960s, today the palace houses the Gdańsk National Museum's Modern Art collection, consisting of works by Polish artists from the 19th and 20th centuries (Matejko, Boznańska, Gierymski, Podkowiński, Malczewski and more), plus French artists (Georges Braque, Wassily Kandinsky and Marc Chagall), and over 65 works by Günter Grass. The palace also includes temporary exhibitions, as well as hosting concerts of early and contemporary music, readings, symposia and meetings with artists.
