Some Worthwhile Temporary Exhibitions in Krakow

The Power of Nature. Henry Moore in Poland.

 The National Museum in Krakow shows Henry Moore’s sculptures at its four branches features: his monumental works in the open air as well as smaller ones indoors. They are exhibited in the Main Building (Gmach Glowny) at 1, 3 Maja street, Europeum at Plac Sikorskiego square, the Szolayski House at Plac Szczepanski square, and The Czapski Museum at 12 Pilsudskiego street. Henry Moore is often referred to as “arguably the greatest sculptor of the 20th century” and till the end of June one may see his works free of charge in Krakow, yet the scattered exhibition requires a good amount of walking.
