This was one of a great surprises for us. The museum is fantastic, with interactive exhibitions which will lead you through Krakow history. There is so much interesting things to see, and would be a shame to miss it. All you need is a little patience to reed all the descriptions and hour or two of your time. Not to... More

Amazing to me that some reviewers found this museum boring and overrated. We spent two hours here and would have remained longer if we didn't have dinner reservations. It is obvious from the very beginning that a great deal of thought, expertise and money was invested here. What some referred to as a "pile of rocks" are medieval stone buildings... More

The entrance was on the side facing the Xmas market, while tickets were bought on the opposite side of the building (We did not pay as it was included on the "Visit Krakow" Card). The museum has issued a booklet in English - "Rynek Underground - Tourist Route" which may be of interest before - or after. The exhibitions have... More

visit will last at least 2 hours, and if longer, you can take a break for coffee and pastries - there is a nice cafe in the basement. Take your time .. Treat yourself to fun;-)

While this looked great visually, we left feeling a little confused about all the amazing reviews this gets. The main issue is that it didnt explain until literally the very end what the ruins were, why they existed and how they had been discovered so we spent most the time in the museum having no context on what we were...

We stumbled across this site accidentally, very glad we did as it was fascinating. We could have stayed all day. The visual presentations were excellent and showed war footage of Cracow being invaded right at the location we were at. Well presented all round but the lighting could benefit from being a little brighter.

I understand that the intension of the architects of this place was to show and explain as much as possible about the history of Cracow but the final result is deceiving. The ground plan is messy, most of information is on TV screens and you do not feel there all these centuries of the history of the town. If your... More
