The Gallery of Maria Ritter in Nowy Sącz is at the same time the Museum of Bourgeois Interiors. It is located on the first floor of a tenement house that belonged to the family of the prominent Sącz painter.

Her studio was reconstructed here, along with a display of paintings. The remaining rooms were furnished in such a way as to reconstruct the drawing rooms of the former bourgeois houses. The Ritter family actually utilised much of the furniture and many of the objects, today regarded as memorabilia, that are on display in the house. Maria Ritter was a painter from a Sącz bourgeois family. They lived on a corner of the Sącz Market Square in a tenement house dating from the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, it houses a gallery dedicated to Maria Ritter. Some of the rooms on the first floor of the tenement house have been decorated in the style of the interior of a nineteenth-century bourgeois house. Two 19th-century lounge rooms have been reconstructed, one of which is called 'Green' and is done in Biedermeier style with heavy furniture and many trinkets. Paintings by Maria Ritter hang on the walls. Her paintings also decorate the smaller 'white' lounge room with light furniture from the late 19th century. In the last room, is a simulacrum of the bedroom of Maria Ritter's grandparents, Felix and Josephine, decorated in Viennese style. A separate room is occupied by the artist's former studio with her paintings. The filming of the film 'My Nikifor' ('Mój Nikifor') took place in the Gallery.
