The house where Matejko was born, lived and passed away was transformed into the first Polish biographical museum that reflects his life and work.
Exploring the house
The Museum is extremely complete and shows all the sides of the artist’s life: as a husband, student, painter, traveler and collector. The house museum features objects once owned by the well-known artist and some of his major works, as well as a beautiful collection which he put together during his lifetime. The selection is made up of paintings, weaponry, militaria and fabrics, among a lot of other rare items.
The Jan Matejko House is an independent branch of the National Museum in Kraków. Visitors will find the visit quiet entertaining, since some of the rooms have been reconstructed as they used to be while the painter lived and the collection is extremely varied and unusual.
