This is amongst the best modern designed museums currently in Poland. Most other museums could learn a lot from visiting. We found here everything we wanted to learn in a way which kept our enthusiasm throughout the tour. Interactive is perhaps the key word in describing this museum. Make time to visit.

For anyone interested in the archaeological history of Krakow its a great place to visit. All of the Square's previous incarnations are here buried below the Square and some skillful excavation work has been done to make this attraction worth visiting. Lots of information, some a little uninteresting and random but overall pretty good. It IS however very popular and... More

Only fairly recently opened, 2005. Entrance is in the Sukiennice opposite St Mary`s Basilica. There is a small admission charge. The exhibition contains artefacts discovered during excavations and the remains of footings of ancient buildings. A good place to escape to if it starts to rain.

We did enjoy our visit. Really great use of technology and media to make the experience more engaging. I'd question the layout of some of the exhibits as one doesn't get a sense of perspective until towards the end of the museum. Some of the exhibits are a bit random and don't always have an explanation or description, plus several... More

Rynek Underground is a great place to visit. Only thing that was a surprise was that tickets can be sold out; we tried to visit on Thursday but because tickets were already sold out at 16 o'clock we had to reschedule our visit We booked tickets for Friday instead. It did not do any harm for us to reschedule though.... More

This underground museum is simply amazing in the way it brings archaeology/history to life, and engages the viewer to experience what life was like in those lost eras. It took me a while to get the hang of how to explore this Museum, but once I got it, it was really interesting...we left only because it was closing time. I... More

If you want to find out about the history of the city, this is a cool place to go. Has some interactive stuff and everything is presented in a nice way.

Visiting this museum was the last thing I did in Krakow. The tickets are highly controlled and you are given a time to enter. I got the very last ticket of the day so I went in around 8 PM. The museum is modern and air-conditioned. There are interactive displays throughout the main floor. Visitors are meant to go in... More

I was really looking forward to visiting the Rynek Underground as I love historical museums. Unfortunately, the visit was a letdown. Maybe it was just me, but I couldn't find a coherent theme to the presentation and to the overall layout in the museum. Also, it was really dark at places and I couldn’t read some of the descriptions on... More

We visited the Rynek underground museum on our second day in the city. It was really interesting and different from a generic attraction/museum/cathedral. Only criticism would be that you can't take any photos.
