The National Museum in Krakow was established as Polandâ€™s first national art collecting institution in 1879, when the nation was stripped of its statehood and its country by the partitioning powers. Until the end of World War I, it was the only such large museum accessible to the public in Poland and still today it remains an institution with the biggest number of collections, buildings and permanent exhibitions.
