A bit of everything happens here - photography, dance, craft fairs, jiu-jitsu classes, art exhibits, theatre performances, workshops, and more - but of most interest to tourists is the Zdzisław Beksiński Gallery, a permanent exhibit of paintings by the controversial 20th century Polish artist known for his images of grotesque, disfigured figures and landscapes which we absolutely recommend (open 11:00 - 19:00, Sun 12:00 - 19:00, closed Mon; admission 10/8zł). There's also a cheap restaurant in the basement, and the space in front of the building operates as a food truck park, making it arguably the best place to get food in the neighbourhood.
