The National Museum in Warsaw is preparing to celebrate its 150th anniversary this year. The former Gallery of Polish Painting, now the Gallery of 19th-Century Art, was recently repainted and renovation work is under way at all the museum’s galleries.

“A new lighting system is being installed, the floors are being sanded and exhibition screens are being put in place,” said Zuzanna Jamrozik, coordinator of the renovation project at the museum. “We have replaced the windows and taken down previous furnishings and now we are starting to install new ventilation and air-conditioning systems.”

Visitors who come to the museum May 18 will be able to see three revamped rooms: the Gallery of 19th-Century Art, the Gallery of Early European Painting and the Gallery of Traditional Polish and European Portraits. The Gallery of Medieval Art and the Gallery of 20th- and 21st-Century Art will be opened in the latter half of this year.

The rearrangement of the National Museum’s permanent exhibitions began July 18 last year as part of preparations for the 150th anniversary. The main, three-day anniversary celebrations will begin May 17, comprising cultural and artistic events held at the museum’s Main Courtyard and the newly opened Stanisław Lorentz Courtyard.
