The National Museum in Warsaw Reviews
Wczoraj nie wpuszczono mnie do muzeum, ponieważ w ręce trzymałem cieniutką kurtkę. W tym czasie wpuszczano setki osób w kurtkach. Dlaczego, bo inni założyli je na siebie. Oto logika tego miejsca.

Why, because others founded them on each other. Here is the logic of this place. The word "regulations" treated by personnel freely and obscure man. Great profession. Two hours of waiting for a meeting with someone from the directorate and the conversation, was a waste of time. I was not interested in this situation, I and my problems. Please write a complaint-I heard it repeatedly. Nobody wanted to talk substantive and solve the problem on the spot. It is unpleasant how a public institution serves to hold employees, mainly the same.
The National Museum in Warsaw has an amazing collection that really stunned me. It was my absolute favourite in Warsaw and well worth a visit. more »
Great museum! It is a huge building with lots of stairs. Lots of art, rooms and things to see. All very nicely displayed and easy to see. Highly recommend for tourists that aren't native to Poland. Think it's great if you're from Poland too.
Loved it.. such a beautiful museum with an amazing repertoire of diverse artists. I just do not understand why they force you to leave the jacket upfront. Nevertheless, the exposition is very interesting..pretty dark art of the war time but very interesting.
