Found the content somewhat mediocre. Fine reprentation of bunches of cobblestone... Nice videos at the end. We didn't have a guide, since the tickets had a time of arrival, we thought that was when the tour started

See Kraków as it existed my years ago. An engaging multimedia tour with videos and computers. Some walking involved, but not onerous. Buy your ticket on the other side of the entrance beforehand.

The place to go on a rainy day in Krakow. The museum tells the history of the development of the city from around 10th century. It is located underground beneath the main square and is good value.

Allow up to 60 minutes at this museum as there is so much to see and marvel at. Good for kids too as it is inter-active.

The first section has interactive touch screens in different languages with information about transport, water supply, history, trades etc but the part with the photos of... More
