National Museum in Warsaw (MNW)
The museum was established on 20 May 1862, as the "Museum of Fine Arts, Warsaw". A new building was inaugurated on 18 June 1938. During World War II the building was damaged and the collection looted by German soldiers. After the war the Polish Government retrieved many of the works seized by the Germans. Still more than 5.000 artefacts are missing. Faras Saint Anne (detail) 01.jpg
