Krakow is a nice town with lot to see, even if I can't say there's something really unmissable. Guided tour only. If you have time, it's ok. Otherwise don't regret it - at least the short tour we had.

Beautiful exposure and many original furniture and documents, especially, knowing that during the World War II everything has been stollen from Krakow. Also, very interesting explanation about the Polish academia beginning and the Polish Crowned members involvement into it.

Definitely captures the feel of an old academic institution with a lovely central courtyard. And don't miss the excellent café in the basement.

A lovely quite courtyard stop on our walk around Kraków. University museum on site. Small downstairs canteen. Worth a stop for a coffee and a cake. Not really somewhere to make a special trip to visit.

The unique seclusion of scholarly lives was brought alive on a tour through this oasis-like small museum. It is the old residence, refectory and library of Jagiellonian academics. Until well into the 19th century, they were like monks: not allowed to marry, dining together, their...More

The museum tour is well worth scheduling your day around. Tour guide was knowledgeable and witty, and I left feeling lucky to have had the opportunity to be here. The museum highlights the strength of the human spirit.

I would also recommend doing the guided tour in English, it was very informative and the cost was minimal - just over £2 (and half price for me as a senior).
