The main building was erected in stages between 1934–89, according to plans by Czesław Boratyński, Edward Kreisler and Bolesław Schmidt. It houses three permanent galleries. Its “Gallery of twentieth Century Polish Art” is the most comprehensive in Poland. It features selected phenomena in Polish art, from Young Poland to today. “The Gallery of Artistic Craftsmanship” is the largest permanent exhibition of its kind in Poland. It presents the richness of Polish and Western European craftsmanship from the early Middle Ages to Art Nouveau, complemented with an impressive collection of Judaica. “The Arms and Uniforms in Poland Gallery” showcases military items from the medieval period up to the second World War.

In the temporary exhibit rooms – in accordance with the museum’s mission – other shows are organized, presenting both the works of the museums collections and those on loan from other institutions and individual collectors.

For children and young people there is the modern educational room called “the Goat Room" [Pod Kozami] with an area of about 100 m2 and outfitted with multimedia equipment (a screen with a multimedia projector and an interactive board).
