The article presents the results of eye-tracking research conducted at The District Museum in Toruń (Muzeum Okręgowe w Toruniu) at the Polish painting and sculpture from 1945 to 2010 in the collection of the District Museum of Toruń exhibition (Malarstwo i rzeźba polska od 1945 do 2010 roku w zbiorach Muzeum Okręgowego w Toruniu) in July 2016. Its aim was to register eyeball movements of eleven people whose task was to enjoy the exhibition without any time limits. The experiment was to provide answer to the question concerning the usefulness of eye-tracking for museology. The results turned out to be a valuable point of reference for discussion. Although the paper constitutes a form of prolegomena to the topic, some noteworthy issues do indeed appear, including: the question of what our strategy of viewing/looking at paintings is, the problem of viewer’s behaviour in a museum space, the usefulness of eye-tracking in preparing expositions, catalogues and guides. The article also deals with questions about the role of picture frame and the path of moving around the museum. The project was financed out of the budget of Toruń (the Mayor’s scholarship), conducted in cooperation with The District Museum in Toruń.
