It's a very interesting idea - the history of Krakow is to a large extent very well told by the museum, and it's all housed underground, directly below the city square. It's very informative, and you can easily spend hours reading every detail and watching the four long historical videos near the end of the museum. However the museum can... More

we spent about half an hour in this underground museum and learned a bit about artefacts found here, the history of Kraków and the Town Square. It's not a life changing museum but if your in the area and have time to visit, give it a go. I found it really intriguing watching the videos of how they excavated and... More

this was a great wee museum that takes you right beneath the main square in Krakow. It was very interesting to see how the town came to be the way it is today. We took the tour ourselves with out a guide so we could walk at our own pace.

If you have Claustrophobia skip it. Floor could kill you perceptually. I felt ill and left as soon as I could. Skip it

Very interesting modern museum with interactive items. Hire the audio guide. You "walk through" a wall of water and "jump" in a puddle!!! A very inventive way to show the layers of architecture. The videos at the end of the tour are very informative giving a history of Poland from the Middle Ages to the present.

An archeologist's dream. Takes you under the main square of Krakow to reveal what Krakow was like as a major trading center during the Middle Ages and later. Kids would love this if they know something about knights and traders.

This is a great museum. A bit tricky to find, as it's not well signposted: you need to buy a ticket on the clock tower side of the Cloth Hall in the booking office ( they will tell you when you can visit as numbers are restricted, also it's free on Tues) then the entrance to the museum is on...

Place is organized in really authentic way. You can literally feel like in middle ages. You hear sounds from the streets. You smell wood from these times. You see people. You feel that you are part of the town, just amazing. Plus museum is organized in really modern interactive way, so nobody would be bored

Well, it was difficult to find any signs leading us to the entrance from the market square. The Underground had seemed to be an interesting attraction but, to be honest, there was no "wow" effect. Some of the touch&play screens did not work properly and the exhibition was quite small. What's even worse, descriptions of the exhibits were very small,... More
