Jan Matejko House Tours

Welcome to Jan Matejko’s universe! The famous artist, counted among the most famous Polish painters, is celebrated for his vivid depictions of political and military events inspired from Polish history. Some of his most famous works include the Battle of Grunwald, Union of Lublin, Rejtan, as well as several portraits of Polish kings, which are exposed in various National Museums across Poland.

The three-story town house is where the painter used to work and live, and has been transformed into a biographical museum in the late 1800s, shortly after his death. The house is still adorned with artwork commissioned by Matejko himself, which is now particularly valuable, seeing as he was quite the collector. Hundreds of objects and trinkets that belonged to Matejko, collected throughout the years, make up the relatively small but highly significant collection – from his reading glasses to Renaissance furniture, and from antique firearms to books documenting his fascination for gargoyles.

Practical Info

The Jan Matejko House is located at Floriańska 41, halfway between the train station and Krakow’s old market square Rynek Glowny. It is therefore easily reachable by foot from anywhere within the city center, or by tram via lines 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, and 15 at stop Dworzec Główny. The house is open between Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10 AM to 6 PM, and on Sundays from 10 AM to 4 PM. Admission costs 9 złoty per adult, and 1 złoty per child aged 7-16 and for students under 26 years old. Entry is free for kids under the age of 7.
