“Museum Under Rynek Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Had to visit two Tourist Information offices before being told correctly how to find the entrance to this museum. It's very poorly advertised and not signposted at all. Splendid exhibits but when we visited early evening there was no English guide so had to do the exhibits on our own. OK when English appeared by the exhibits but not the case for everything. Nevertheless this excavated area of the Square has been wonderfully presented and the pictures of the work undertaken very interesting. Well worth a visit but try to ensure joining a English guide.

“good for children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

nice "museum". It's rather cool place to visit than to know something about Kraków. There are many curiosity and interactive things. Ideal place for children but the adult may also like it.

“well laid out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

beautiful museum telling the history of krakow by displays and video explanations which i found to be very multi lingual so was easy to understand for english , well set out and lots of thought gone into this one and amazing as it is built under the main market square. would advise to purchase tickets either online or as soon as you arrive to avoid disappointment .

“Rynek Underground”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Really excellent museum, I disagree with the comments about the displays, all the ones we saw had translations into many languages, the timed entry meant we were not overrun with big tour parties, well worth a visit.

“Underground museum - stepping into history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Great way to spend time on a rainy day. Interactive boards provide information in several languages. Well laid out displays of artifacts and early town construction tell the story of Karkow through the ages. Video films chronicle Krakow history but rooms are small so may not be able to catch them all. Allow at least two hours.
