The Czartoryski Museum is a Polish museum, founded in Krakow in 1796 by Princess Izabela Czartoryska to preserve Polish heritage according to the princess's motto: "The past for the future." The main treasure of the institution is the painting Lady of the Ermine by Leonardo da Vinci.
After multiple adventures during World War II and the subsequent communist regime, in 1991 the ownership of the museum returned to the Czartoryski family, which kept it open to the public under the management of a foundation, until in December 2016 Prince Adam Karol Czartoryski signed an agreement to sell the whole to the Polish government for about one hundred million euros .
Until its recent sale, the museum received more than 12,000 visitors a year, being one of the best private museums in all of Europe and one of the tourist attractions of Krakow.
The museum has been closed since 2010 for remodeling and its opening is estimated for December 2019. Until then, The Lady of the Ermine is exhibited in the National Museum of Krakow.
