It is one of the largest and oldest museums in Poland. It houses rich collections of art from antiquity to Polish avant-garde art. Here you can admire "The Beach in Pourville" - the only painting by the Impressionist Claude Monet in the Polish collection.

The Museum is a branch of the National Museum in Poznań and is located in two buildings.
