Defrosting museums and galleries - where can we go already this weekend?

14 of May '20

Over the past weeks, we've been writing about all sorts of cultural activities you could attend online. Movies, exhibitions, lectures, webinars, podcasts, etc. However, it is finally time to "unfreeze" Polish cultural institutions. All galleries and museums that have decided to open their doors to visitors again must follow safety rules.

In masks, gloves, a few people at a time, on their own - this is how visiting cultural institutions will be done. Centers with relatively small spaces are in the best situation. However, each must individually establish the conditions for reopening with the Chief Sanitary Inspector.

Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw

At the moment in Warsaw, visitors are welcomed by the Museum of Polish Vodka and the Museum of Life in the People's Republic. The Royal Castle is also operational, and the Museum of Modern Art and Zachęta are slowly opening their doors.

In Cracow, the National Museum has partially opened - you can visit the Gallery of 19th Century Polish Art in the Cloth Hall and the Royal Castle. The Museum of the City of Cracow has resumed operations, inviting visitors to the Barbican and the defensive walls. Next week there will be an exhibition presented at the International Cultural Center, "Plants and Animals. Atlases of Natural History in the Age of Linnaeus." MOCAK and the Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology are also opening.

The National Museum in Wroclaw, the Ethnographic Museum and the "Panorama Racławicka" Museum also welcome all visitors. And starting tomorrow, the Pavilion of the Four Domes of the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Although visiting these cultural institutions will not be the same as it was a few months ago, this situation has its good points. I guess it's never been possible before to take a solo stroll through the chambers of the Royal Castle for the price of a ticket?
