Czartoryski Museum

  ul. Pijarska 15 ,   Old Town          (+48) 12 370 54 60     21 Nov 2019

**After almost 10 year, the Czartoryski Museum will reopen on December 20th, 2019!
Once renowned for its possession of Leonardo da Vinci's Lady with an Ermine - one of only three existent Da Vinci oil paintings and a sentimental favourite for Poles, reproduced and hung in many a living room, the Czartoryski was Kraków's most famous and most visited museum until its closure for renovations in 2010. In 2016 the Czartoryski collection was sold to the Polish state and became the property of the Kraków National Museum, which is finally planning to reopen the museum in December 2019. Currently Lady With an Ermine is on display at the main branch of the National Museum. Those with an interest in the Czartoryski collection other than da Vinci's varmint-holding muse should consider visiting the Europeum (Pl. Sikorskiego 6), which currently hosts the Czartoryski European painting collection.

Kérem, tájékoztassanak, hogy Leonardo da Vinci Hölgy Hermelinnel című képe a Krakkói Nemzeti Múzeumban látható-e 2018. húsvétján (30.03.2018.- 02.04.2018.) Nyitva tartási idő? Felnőtt belépő ára? Köszönettel: Ildikó Koncz

The simple answer is 'where's the fun in a sign?' Some people love a moan and they love to be able to put you right. Putting up a sign would put an end to hours of endless fun begrudgingly having to tell stupid foreigners like us that the place is closed. You should try checking the research in some of these places. What? You want information from us to print free in thousands of guidebooks which will inform lots of visitors...........leave us alone - we're too busy. <br /><br />It ought to be said that we love Poland and there are a number of great things about it. Old state employees generally don't fall into that group. That said it is changing rapidly as a visit to the Uprising Museum or Chopin museums in Warsaw will demonstrate. I guess that the Czartoryski Museum is likely to be markedly improved once the renovation work is done probably putting a few of these older people out of work - hence the bitterness.

I was in Krakow May this year and wanted to go to this museum and was grumpily told it was closed. If they don't want to speak to us why not put up a sign.I am going again next year and want to see the new museum under the market square the email I received says it opened on 24th September can anyone tell me if this is true.

The Czartoryski Museum will be CLOSED for remodelling till 2012. Part of its collections have been moved to the Niepolomice castle for an exhibition there open from April 2010. Leonardo da Vinci's Lady with an Ermine is to be temporarily displayed in the Cloth Hall gallery after its reopening.
