Re-opening of the Princes Czartoryski Museum in Cracow

The Lady with an Ermine by Leonardo da Vinci or the Landscape with the Good Samaritan by Rembrandt van Rijn will again be displayed at Pijarska Street in Krakow. The most valuable Polish art collection will once again appear in the renovated Palace. The Princes Czartoryski Museum, a branch of the National Museum in Krakow, will be inviting visitors from December 20, 2019.

What makes the Czartoryski Museum stand out is the collection's historical nature, boasting of many unique works of art: paintings, medieval enamels, sculptures in ivory, amber and coral, ceramics, Venetian glassware and Augsburg silverware, Persian carpets, fabrics, Oriental and Polish military items, works of unusual beauty and both artistic and historical value.

The Princes Czartoryski Museum has been closed for almost ten years, which is why its re-opening is one of this year's major cultural events. The museum has not only undergone extensive renovation, but also gained additional exhibition space - from now on, works of art will be displayed on two floors of the Palace and in its outbuildings. Apart from the most famous objects from the Czartoryski collection, the exhibition also includes those less frequently displayed, yet unique works of art.
