This is a history museum where all the exhibits talk about the history of Cracow. You can get a ton of well presented information inside. The creators strived to keep the place modern and interactive. Some of the data you'll see and touch, some you'll browse using touch screens. I liked the section with documentary movies the most. They have... More

Unfourtanely this beautiful city is ignored by people. They prefer to visit much more 'touristic' cities, but I have to say that this is a terrible mistake. You should definetely change your route and see this gorgeous, historical city..I miss that so much!!

Very cool view of the old city. The videos at the end were probably the most interesting part. Some very cool models of Krakow to check out too. All built around the actual structures from the last few 100's of years.

After reading mixed reviews about this place I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I am so glad we visited. The entire exhibition is built around the original excavation site and through a combination of videos and artefacts you could really imagine what life was back in the medieval times. It was actually a nice break to see this... More

We had no idea what was hiding beneath our feet when we shopping around the vendors on the Main Square. This excavated cite turned museum is a must see for history fanatics and regular tourists alike. Make sure to get tickets, there appear to be very limited walk-in times. We did not have a tour guide, but the majority of... More

Excellent for tourist who want know more about history of Cracow. Some interactive attractions - for me quite good. Oh, in season you should have reservation, because it's difficult to find free hours.

Who knew what lay below us as we wandered over the cobbles of the Main Square? An excellent, well designed and managed museum located below the main square. Tickets are reasonably priced for the attraction and are free on Tuesday. We went on a Tuesday and it was very busy, it would be a better option to pay and it... More

This is our third time to krakow, and we had the heard of this place but never found it! Well it's right under your nose literally! It's a large museum under the main square building, As is usual in Poland very little signs seems to be the order of the day, it's amazing how many places you pass without knowing... More

This museum is underneath the cloth hall. The tickets we bought were fairly cheap and they were timed. It is quite dark down there and some of the exhibits are a bit hard to read but all have an english translation. Not the most stimulating of museums but as it is open till 8pm it is a good place to... More
