National Museum.  Third in 3 best cultural places in Wroclaw

The National Museum in Wroclaw is one of the largest museums in Wrocław. The museum is not far from the city centre, and can be easily reached on foot. By the way, when you book your entrance to the Panorama, the same ticket entitles you to visit a couple of other museums, one of which is this one.

The permanent exposition is located on several floors and divided into various historical epochs. First is the “Silesian Art of the 12th to the 16th Century” showing the most valuable works of Gothic art.

Second part is “Silesian art from the 16th to the 19th century”: sculpture, painting from the Renaissance to romanticism. Third is “Polish Art of the 17th-19th Centuries”:  portraits, a collection of glass and porcelain. And, finally, “Polish contemporary art from the beginning of the 20th century”, so can see the works of Tadeusz Makovsky, Stanislav Vitkevich, Vladislav Strzeminsky, Jozef Shine and many others.
