The National Museum in Warsaw has launched a special summer program with activities for all age groups.

Visitors can take part in the Summer at the National Museum program on weekdays except Mondays. Activities include watching a museum conservator at work and opportunities to create a work of art of your own.

On Tuesdays, the museum offers workshops focused on items that the Gessel Foundation has purchased for the National Museum’s collection of modern art.

The workshops include meetings with contemporary artists.

Adult visitors can find out that exploring museum galleries can be exciting. The museum offers guided tours of the Aleksander Gierymski 1850-1901 temporary exhibition (closes Aug. 10) and of permanent exhibitions, including a tour of the finest masterpieces on show at the National Museum. This tour is available in English once a week.

On Thursday evenings, visitors can attend meetings dealing with different themes, techniques and trends in art.

The Summer at the National Museum program will continue until the end of August. For further information on the activities and workshops, go to the museum’s website at www.mnw.art.pl (click on “Edukacja”, “Aktualnie” and then “Lato w MNW”).
