Zacheta gallery is in a old beautiful palace and offers the interested visitor a great experience in modern art. Changing exhibitions are always interestingly curated.

When visiting Galeria Zacheta during January 2017 I found great interest in the temporary Folk Art exhibition. It provided an interesting view of art under communism and reminded me my childhood in Israel, which was a socialistic country under strong Russian influence.

I visited the gallery one evening and there were four exhibitions there, one of which was of Polish folklore following WWII. There is a cloak room at the entrance that doesn't charge. I purchased the standard entry with the exhibition brochure, which describes all of the exhibitions in further detail. The architecture of building is worth seeing inside and out.... More

Worth visiting if you like contemporary polish art. There's also a good bookshop inside. The building itself is great as well, but now is being renovated.

Beautiful building with good contemporary art exhibition. It was a pity 2 of the 3 exhibitions were only in Polish - and did not have english subtitles - so I couldn't understand the videos and documentaries. Worth visiting if you are an art lover.

Zachęta offers a great artistic experience almost every time for stupid cheap (1pln if you're a student with Thursdays free for everyone). Nothing to loose and a lot to gain, as the gallery often hosts up to three separate exhibitions, catering to a wide range of tastes.

The setting is a beautiful neo-Renaissance building from the nineteen hundreds, one of the few buildings that survived the Nazi occupation, but on the inside you get the most contemporary of polish art, with some Balkan and generally European artists too. It's a really enjoyable experience and one you wouldn't want to miss if you enjoy great contemporary art.

Very small exhibition, uninteresting exhibition. There is so much to see in this town that I would say this is not worth a minute of your time. Very poor.
