Are you coming to the Museum on the Vistula to see the exhibition A Tiger Came into the Garden: Art of Maria Prymachenko? Then this information is for you!

 


A Tiger Came into the Garden: Art of Maria Prymachenko is the first exhibition of this scale in Poland of the work of this Ukrainian artist. At the Museum on the Vistula we are showing 89 works from 1982–1994, from the private collection of Eduard Dymshyts, a Ukrainian curator and scholar of Prymachenko’s art.

Exhibition opening hours:
Tuesday–Thursday, 12:00–19:00
Friday, 12:00–20:00
Saturday, 11:00–20:00
Sunday, 11:00–18:00

Tickets
Tickets for the exhibition are available at PLN 25 (regular price) or PLN 15 (concessions).

The huge interest in this show requires us to introduce a system of time slots for weekend tickets. These changes also apply to the extended the long period 1–5 May 2024 and 30 May–2 June.

If you plan to visit the exhibition on the weekend, or during the long period (1–5 May and 30 May–2 June ), you will need to purchase tickets for a specific date and time on our website. A limit of 120 people per hour for individual viewing of the exhibition and 70 people for guided tours is designed to ensure you a comfortable and quality encounter with the art of Maria Prymachenko.

Please arrive punctually at the museum. You will be able to enter the exhibition only during the first 30 minutes of your reserved time slot. For example, if you selected a ticket from the 12:00–13:00 time slot, you can enter the show no earlier than 12:00 and no later than 12:30.

In addition to advance tickets online, available tickets will also be sold at the ticket counter at the Museum on the Vistula. However, on weekends the ticket counter will close one hour before the museum closes, i.e. on Saturdays the ticket counter will close at 19:00, and on Sundays at 17:00.

If you are visiting the museum from Tuesday–Friday (apart from the long May Day period), you can purchase tickets under the usual rules and view the exhibition without any hourly limits.
 

Relax, have fun, look at art
At the centre of the exhibition space there is comfortable seating where you can rest or find a new viewpoint on the art. There’s also room at the show for your own creativity. Using magnets of creatures and plants from Prymachenko’s colourful gouaches, you can create your own surrealistic garden. We’d be thrilled to see what you come up with, so if you want to share them on social media be sure to tag us in your posts:
