Krakow

Jan Matejko House

  ul. Floriańska 41 ,   Old Town          (+48) 12 433 59 60     27 Sep 2019

Jan Matejko was Poland's greatest historical painter whose work and life is honoured in the house where he was born, lived and would eventually die in the 1890s. As well as some witty imaginings of Kraków medieval life, studies for gargoyles, and collections of Renaissance furniture and antique guns and ammo, the minutiae of Matejko's life is preserved, right down to his eyeglasses in this relatively small museum. A fascinating tribute to a genuine Polish master, and a man of many parts. Those with a special interest in Matejko may want to visit his workshop and manor house in Nowa Huta (see Nowa Huta Museums), and the 19th Century Polish Art Gallery where many of his greatest works are displayed.
