Manggha (full name: Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology, until 2007: Manggha Centre of Japanese Art and Technology) is a museum in Kraków, Poland. Until 2005, it was a branch of the National Museum of Kraków.
In 1920, Feliks Jasieński—critic, writer and collector of art, whose penname was "Manggha"—donated his collection of artworks connected with Japan to the National Museum in Kraków. After his death, the collection was not exhibited, one reason being the lack of space to arrange the 6500 items. The lone exception was an exhibition in Cloth Hall of Kraków in 1944, organised by the Germans, who occupied Poland at the time. A young Andrzej Wajda saw the exhibition and became fascinated by Japanese art.

Great place with many interesting exhibitions about Japan. The layout changes a lot so don't miss anything you want to see there. Additionally there are great contemporary arts exhibitions which I really enjoy and can't recommend enough. I had a slight feeling of not enough information and items in the Japanese culture section, bit I will go back to check for sure.

Beautiful contemporary building, always interesting exhibitions, cafe with tasty tea, coffee and food and outstanding summer terrace with a view on Vistula river.

Interesting, interactive exhibition. Not big enough to satisfy my curiosity.

I love the tea! They have a tea master now and the prices are very affordable :)

Expectations/reality do not coincide in my case. The navigation around the museum is rather poor, I still have a feeling that we missed something there and we were not told that they have had more exhibitions on site, not sure. Maybe it was just unfortunate moment for me to visit (we have visited Confluence exhibition). Not sure if I will come back.

Very good museum and convention center. The terrace is incredible with views to the river and the old city
