I recommend! Very nice service: staff can pull the child to have fun and show interesting exhibits, although the word "exhibit" does not quite fit to the museum (you can actually touch everything). A revelation to me!

My girlfriend and I decided to visit Rynek Underground on our recent visit to Kraków. The museum is very new and the exhibits are interactive with touchscreens at most important features, available in multiple languages. The museum allows you to walk at the old street level of medieval Kraków, exploring the old roads which fall directly beneath the ones above... More

This has the potential to be a really fun, educational experience. However, after spending two hours here, I was still confused about what I was meant to be learning. The displays are not well signposted at all, i.e., one display was of a book called the Balthasar Behem Codex but other than it's name there was no explanation given at... More

The original town square was ten / 20 feet lower than currently, and this museum is about what they have found under the current ground in the square. It is very dark around the museum - the lighting could be a lot better, and poorly described in English. It is actually a bit boring until you come to the section... More

An interesting exhibit. It is an excellent place to cool off if you are there in the heat of the summer. We had a guide who made the attraction more understanding and real. It discussed a lot about Poland in the medieval times. It is an archaeological ruin with other medium to make it fun for everyone. It is under... More

The Rynek Underground was a great family attraction with many kids and interactive displays. My wife and I went there on a rainly afternoon and had a quite educational and enjoyable visit. We learned a bit of history regarding the Krakow area during the middle ages to recent centuries. Not a must see, but a good informative distraction. Most displays... More

It tells you about the underground village and shows you layers of stone throughout the years and other items such as rings coins etc. It's interesting but slightly boring too.

Amazing place down the main square. You can see there how the old town looks like hundreds years ago.
