Like many towns of the area, Opatow has a vast network of underground tunnels and cellars underneath its unsuspecting townscape. Many segments of this brick lined maze are privately own, with some of them still being used as storage facilities. The city does offer guided tours of a publicly owned part though, which consists of an impressive segment located under the local market that was restored in the 1960s after a collapse caused by heavy truck traffic. The tour lasts a little over an hour and offers insights into the local culture and heritage, which is especially notable for its many foreign influences and the prosperity that the town once commanded. The chambers themselves are full of exhibits of tools, fossil finds and examples of merchandise that was produced or traded locally. Alas, the guide was only available in Polish when we visited, so I needed my wife to translate for me, which possibly resulted in things getting lost in translation. There didn't seem to be any fixed times that the tour would take place at. Groups can call ahead and agree on a time, while individuals have to wait until a sufficient group gathers for the guides to take them. If you are in the latter category, I suggest planning to go at the weekend, when there are more tourists. Alternatively, you can call ahead and ask them when they think they will have enough participants, which will most likely be the case in the later afternoon, e.g. 3 or 4 pm. The tunnels include lots of stairs and are by no means wheelchair accessible of course. Ventilation is good, but temperatures suggest that you should take a least a warm sweater.
