This Museum is not very great. The displays are strange not to mention the layout is weird. It is not very interesting and the descriptions are very misleading about the museum. The only part that was worth it were the documentaries playing at the very end. I would not recommend this museum.

A lot of people miss this as it is not widely advertised and the entrance is not obvious. It is opposite St Mary's Church at the end of the cloth hall. It has only been open 2 years so is only in new guide books. We spent 3 hours in here and even then we did not have time for... More

Very interesting museum underneath the market. The emphasis is on archeological artifacts but the movies at the end of the visit provide a full historic perspective of the city from foundation to WWII. Leave some time for them.

This museum is very good in showing the history of the city of Krakow. Together with The Schindler Museum, you can get a very good sense of what and why Krakow is the way it is. There are some boring and too detailed parts in the exhibition, but all in all, very informative. I would go even just for the... More

The Rynek Underground is an archaeologic musem beneath the main market square that showcases the finds of a "dig" from 2004-2006. In 2004, workers found some relics, and called in the experts. During the next two years, 2/3 of the main market square was dug up to reveal a thousand years of dwellings beneath it. Not only is it marvelous... More

This museum is okay but personally I preferred the Schindler museum. The focus though is obviously different. It was interesting seeing the centuries old cobbled pathways and old market stalls uncovered through the archaeological digs. The videos at the end are worth watching, providing a snapshot of krakow across the different centuries.

A fascinating museum and well worth doing on a rainy day. You don’t realise how big it is either. We went in expecting to spend an hour and we spent 3. They had some cool exhibitions, my favourite being #13 which determines your weight using medieval measurements. However, at all costs, avoid the audio guides. They are difficult to use... More

A magnificent subterranean archeological site. Give yourself at least 3-4 hours to get through it. Uses a lot of unexpected technology along side the real archeology to tell the story of Krakow. It's totally engaging and a must do.

This museum is the result of archaeological excavations that occurred in 2005. Extremely interesting material helpfully presented with the interactive screens, with the information available in different languages including English. When I visited there were large groups arriving, but there was plenty of room for everyone. There are a series of videos placing in the underground vaults which are really... More
