Czartoryska Museum10am to 3:30pm or 6pm, depending on the dayClosed MondaysAdmission: 9 zloty, 6 for studentsFree on ThursdaysI went to this museum on a Thursday, and several of the rooms were roped off. I don't know if it is like that just on Thursdays, or if there's another reason.There are a few old swords, armour, and saddles which are fairly interesting, but the paintings are the best. You can see some Rembrandt and Da Vinci's Portrait of a Lady with an Ermine—the museum's most famous work.The English captions are pretty sparse, which was disappointing.While I was there, there were two artists painting reproductions of two of the works. It was a lot of fun to watch them work—they're so precise! Such talent.
