If it's raining in Krákow it's an interesting visit. From y point of view to focused on an specific period of time (medieval times). Sometimes can be boring specially if you're on your own!

We took my young son here hoping to learn something about the history of the city here and were greatly disappointed. Most displays are in Polish (which would be fine if this wasn't marketed towards tourists) and it seems you see the exact same thing over and over again. Stones, stones and more stones with displays of relics having no... More

The layout of the museum is weird, a lot of the museum was in Polish which would be understandable if it weren't for the fact that Krakow has a lot of tourists who want to learn about the history. This tour needs to have English speaking scheduled guides to engage the visitors. Waste of time and money.

We went there with my Partner, spend over two hours walking and seeing all these things Underground Rynek. I love watch everything what we call PAST, especially when people put so much effort to create old buildings and entertainments for visitors. Enjoyed a lot movies, every single room tell different story... Funny thing, I found out where potatoes came from... More

Newly discovered and opened few years ago provide documentary info on history of town. This place was voted one of the best museums in Europe. Definitelylace to stop by. You will have choice of short route and longer one. Poor cell phone receptions and audio malfunctions are due to location. You are underground !!!

I am not normally a person who enjoys museums and I found Rynek Underground to be well-worth my time. If you are a frugal traveler, I recommend visiting this museum on a Tuesday because it is free! There is a lot of interesting information about the history of the Krakow area. The museum is very interactive and had a lot... More

Unusual museum....dark and uninteresting . The audio equipment seemed to do its own thing. One minute working ....next minute not. You need to book tickets in advance. It's one that's either for you or not....sadly it was not for us. Would not be rushing back!
