National Museum

Located inside a huge and decidedly bizarre inter-war building, this museum is a must for anyone visiting the city. Dating from 1862 and operating under its current name since 1916, there’s a huge array of permanent exhibitions and antiquities. Visitors will find a wealth of delightful 15th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings as well as several Botticellis in the Gallery of Old Masters (open Tue, Thu, Fri & Sun) which also includes several galleries of Polish art from the 16th century onwards, including some of the best work by the country’s leading painters - Chełmoński and Matejko to name a few. This leads nicely on to the Gallery of 19th Century Art (Tue, Thu, Fri & Sun). The Gallery of Polish Design (Tue, Thu, Fri & Sun) and Professor Kazimierz Michałowski Faras Gallery (Tue, Wed & Sat) are the newest permanent exhibitions to open, the latter being the only exhibition in Europe featuring Medieval Nubian paintings from the Nile River Valley south of the First Cataract. All in all, it's worth seeing. Make sure to check their website for more info, and please note, due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, strict restrictions are in place to prevent overcrowding with each gallery open on a rotational basis, noted above.
