Since its inception in 2005, the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw has collected 1022 works of art (as of: December 2019) by contemporary Polish and foreign artists.


The Museum enhances its collection above all through the acquisition of works of art by purchase – realized as part of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage program called “National Collections of Modern Art”, as well as through gift, bequest and deposit from artists, businesses and private people – including gift-givers from the Society of Friends of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw. Numerous works of art in the collection were created during the exhibitions and public projects realized by our institution. The Museum’s resources also include the artistic archives as well as the Filmoteka Muzeum – a collection of artists’ films comprising of a few hundred titles, available online.


Please be informed that access to all museum collections is suspended until 31 December 2024. This is due to the relocation and the need to arrange new museum space for the public. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
