National Museum of Poland

"National Museum of Poland" is the common name for several of the country's largest and most notable museums. Poland's National Museum comprises several independent branches, each operating a number of smaller museums. The main branch is the National Museum in Kraków (Polish: Muzeum Narodowe w Krakowie), established in 1879 with permanent collections consisting of several hundred thousand items – kept in big part at the Main Building (along the 3 Maja St.), but also in the eight of its divisions around the city.[1][2]
