The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw is a new venue on the map of cultural attractions in Poland’s capital. It is located in the very centre of Warsaw (a short walking distance from the Central Railway Station), in a modernist pavilion from the 60’s, a former furniture store “Emilia” – you can feel the history flowing through your body. The Museum offers an opportunity to explore Polish and foreign, modern and contemporary art in a scale unusual for East-European institutions. Unconventional, interesting and full of surprises – like modern artistic visions, this place is full of surprises and is a must-see exhibition.

A must see

The current exhibition “In the Heart of the Country” shows over 150 exhibits from the Museum’s collection, covering themes such as the globalization of art history. There are also bits about links between cities and contemporary art and much more. Do you feel the thrill? It’s surely one of the most unique places in the whole city, where the “stiff-museum” rules are not followed and visitors can enjoy fresh design and the work of famous artists from our times. Unlike the most known interpretation of the word “museum”, this place is more than a room full of sculptures, paintings etc. Feel free to go there and see everything with your own eyes!
