This museum is free on Sundays, and worth a visit. The exhibition's were interesting where there were photos that you could pull out from draws and place into the light.

Overall good

My husband and I visited today and got lucky as admission on Sundays is free. What a nice surprise. On other days, I believe it’s only around $4.00. Not bad at all. Be sure to eat and drink before arriving, as there is no where to purchase anything at all. There are restrooms. The museum is arranged over 3 floors. They have lots to look at and is well done. The videos and most everything is in polish. If you don’t speak polish, it’s difficult. Some of the signs are in English though. We still enjoyed it overall. Upon going to the upper floor where the guns are, I was hit with a wave of bad bad energy and had to go sit down as I felt I’d pass out. Once I went back downstairs felt fine again. My husband got a very bad headache up there and felt fine after going back downstairs. Something isn’t right up there. Overall, good museum. There were lots of school groups even on a Sunday. We spent about an hour there.

Home army museum visit
Nov 2019 • Family
Me and my.son (11yrs) visited this museum as it was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel. We only paid 26 zlty , just over £5. We got a tour route for the museum which is on 3 floors, this was in English and all of the displays were labelled in Polish and English. In the basement there were scenarios set up with a good variety of artefacts including a mock up of the V2 rocket. The ground floor goes through the war years of Poland. The upper floor is mainly glass cases full of weapons,some older ,most wartime and a few modern.
Access to all floors was by stairs but there was also a lift. The layout means it will be suitable for visitors with disabilities of wheelchair bound. Good toilet facilities on site as well.
For the price, it was a very good museum to visit.

Well laid out Muesum
Nov 2019 • Family
It's a little off the beaten track but well worth finding to visit. The displays inside are well laid out and the whole museum is well presented. A lot of the signage is in Polish only but you get the gist of what's happening. Interesting and informative it shows what the people of Kraków had to endure during and after the 2nd World War

An eye opener, sobering history
Oct 2019
Firstly, location is out to the east, aim for tunnel under main Kraków train station, big brick building, left at first round about. Paid about £4. As other comments note: very dim lighting. An audio tour in English was not yet available. Little English on one level, better on the other floor. 2.5 levels to see. A snap shot of Polish times when the Nazi's arrived and then as WW2 ended the equally oppressive communist times. A real education. Great to see school children there. I was the only adult at that time ! Thick fog on the day, made it hard to find.
Some excellent exhibits and a vast variety of guns.
Labelling could be massively improved and more artefacts added, hopefully with time....

If interested in military history

This is a great museum for my interests. There is a lot of information about the exhibits and what happened, so book at least 2-3 hours for it. it's quite big. Some exhibits are not well lit, so your phone's lantern may be useful from time to time. But it's really worth it, as some exhibits are very impressive like the the V2 rocket.
Tickets were quite affordable too. The museum is close to the bus/train station, just cross a tunnel under the railway track and you're there. Google maps does a good job to take you there.

Very Interesting

We took a Uber cab from Kazimierz to the museum, a bit too far to walk.

The museum is very interesting indeed but would benefit from better lighting. Unfortunately according to the lady at reception the only guided tours are in Polish.

I'm glad I visited.

Amazing information worth a visit
Jun 2019 • Friends
We did not expect to see so much because when you enter the building it seemed quite sparse although laid out very well. It was not until we went down stairs that we got the full story about the Polish Army and underground resistance fighters. I have to say very impressed by the bravery of the Polish people. We went on a Sunday and the admission was free so saved £22 each worth a visit. There is a lift.

Brilliant Museum

A little our of the way but a fascinating insight into the Polish Home Army and resistance. You could spend hours in here if you are at all interested in history. Glad we made the effort.
