On December 11th the long awaited renovated Medieval Art Gallery in the National Museum in Warsaw was opened. The exhibition impresses by its richness (almost one hundred exhibits), what is more its an unforgettable collection of unique polish Gothic works.


The exhibition was rearranged to make the presented collection look even more appealing to today's public, regardless of their age. The works presented in the exhibition dates back mostly to the late medieval period and come from various Polish regions. We can find here also some of the Western European works.
Among the exhibits we can admire works that were originally supposed to introduce common people to the sphere of sacrum – sculptures, pillars, paintings or altars.
The arrangement of the exhibition has really changed – a lot of things have been more exposed for the public. For example sculptures were removed from the walls – so you can admire them from each side. Also, the works which earlier were rather rarely shown, now are accessible for the visitors. Inside the halls some walls were demolished, which resulted in a significant difference in the perception of the presented works. Definitely a big meaning was given to the light which with no doubt is an important feature contributing to the reception of this exhibition. All these efforts are aimed at bringing the contemporary audience to the Middle Ages, introduce them to this time. Thus exhibition is extremely fascinating and worth seeing. Additionally, various cultural events will be also organised – for example some free concerts of medieval music will take place on every Sunday untill May. Tickets to the Museum cost 15 PLN (normal) and 10 PLN (reduced).
