This place might be one of the most distant museums in Warsaw (based near the Wilanów Palace, also in the middle of a posh residential area of Warsaw) but it is definitely worth looking at. It is a branch of the National Museum (check the Muzeum Narodowe w Warszawie article) consisting of two very interesting one-storey buildings, one of which is leaning on huge grey pencils. The other one is a spacious designer room with a great, wide staircase.
In 2013 the Poster Museum hosted a great exhibition: a retrospective of works by Stefan Norblin (1892-1952), a multi-talented Polish artist (hence the title of the exhibition). There are of course posters, but also paintings of a pre-war society, politicians, influential residents of Warsaw, the USA and India (emigration) where Norblin also accepted a huge commission to paint the whole interior of a Maharaja’s palace – parts of his work were to be seen in the Poster Museum.
Until 15 May 2018 the exhibition concentrates on the topic of independence. The topic was worked on by artists from all over the world.
