About
Guided tours in English: Tuesday - Saturday every hour from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. (last English tour 5:00 pm). In the Stained Glass Museum, exhibition spaces intertwine with the old stained glass workshop, functioning since 1902. The visitors can observe the process of stained glass creation, in the warm atmosphere of the historic workshop, directly above the heads of artists and craftsmen. For this reason visits can only be made by joining a guided tour. Ticket prices per person (including our English guide): adults 37 PLN, student 31 PLN, family (2+2) 124 PLN Visitors can also book workshops with master craftsmen and make their own stained glass souvenir. There are three workshops options: 2 hrs, 3 hrs or 2 days long, at the price 190 PLN, 260 PLN or 1100 PLN per person respectively. The price in each case includes: - guided tour of the museum and workshop - coffee break - creation of stained glass object under the artist's guidance - your own stained glass object to take home.

Not for the solo tourist or solo artist
Oct 2021 • Solo
As an artist and stained glass maker myself, this was one of my reasons for visiting Krakow. (I could have gone anywhere else in the world.)

I occasionally go on holiday alone. Although my partner or friends join me sometimes, I like to freedom to please myself and go alone. Their free time work commitments don't always suit mine.

On entering the reception I was told that one person isn't enough to do a tour. A single ticket might not bring in a much money but how many single tourists or visitors don't attend because of this. A year's worth of single entry does add up.

I was offered one further date, but I booked on a walk run by 'Guru walks' The walks are free but one can offer a donation at the end. I gave the guide 200 zlopty for a differently themed walk.

The box office said said 'I should bring another person', which isn't really practical to ask someone from Scotland to join me then are there.

There didn't seem further dates during my stay that I can attend.

When I tried to visit I had 5000 zloty, plus my bank card. Without a tour, I didn't seem to have much opportunity to buy anything else, or in a buying mood, while there.

I am often in a generous mood, such as the 200 zloty, for the guided walking tour yesterday. Depending on the stained glass and their attitude I might have given a substantial contribution for a private tour.

It's quite a bad attitude arrive alone you get nothing, if there's with more than one then you get access to the museum and workshop.

I have been extremely generous with money, high tips at cafes and I've tipped musicians at the end of concerts, despite having a paid a ticket, I've given musicians a lot of money to say thank you. There's the local economy tourist support: museums, restaurants, concerts, taxis.

The two person rule is on their website, but it isn't very prominent. I only discovered it after I left. It never occurred to me there would be such a rule. I've never experienced in this country or abroad. There's no way someone buying a ticket knows if there is one one that day.

For an art museum, and a working studio space, it seems to care more about money than allowing an artist ( painter) and I do stained glass too back home,

Artist, often work alone. Artists, also sometimes travel alone too.

Very disappointed. I'll not return to Krakow, and probably not Poland again.

A very unique tour
Sep 2021 • Friends
I had a wonderful time, the tour is a very unique experience as the workshop is still active and you can see the craftsmen at work. Our guide, Anna was extremely friendly and had a broad knowledge on the subject. Normally, I find guided tours rather uninteresting and bland but this was such a refreshing example! I would recommend it to everyone, even if someone is not well-aquainted with art in general.

Feel like a real craftsman
Aug 2021
Very individual workshop, I felt like a real student working with master and being introduced for work in a company. I could have done everything by myself, I used the same devices as are used by craftsmen. In the studio I felt like "one of them", not like an intruder. During the workshop you can freely talk to your master and get to know more than during regular group tour.

Will definetly revisit

Incredible opportunity to see from close-up how stained glass is made from very begging. Guided by Monika, we learned about history of the place and many details of craftsmanship. During my next visit in Cracow I would gladly take part in workshop and create my very own piece of art!

Absolutely fantastic. Something really different to do, great value for money, and the English tour and workshop with Gabriela is insightful and fun. She's very knowledgeable and we were having conversations the whole workshop. They also recommend buildings in the vicinity where there is stained glass windows (e.g. photo attached is from a residential building just down the road - stunning!). This was a highlight in one of the best cities in Poland, this place is a must do!

A great way to spend a rainy day
May 2021
In addition to doing the tour of the workshop and museum we had a two hour lesson where we made our own stained glass craft. Our guide, Gabriela did a great job in explaining everything. On our tour their was a young child who asked very thoughtful questions and Gabriela answered them in a way that all of us could understand. The hands on experience that some of us chose to do after the tour was really interesting. Again Gabriela was fantastic and very encouraging. A small break was also included in our package and the refreshments where very good. All in all I would recommend this museum, the tour and the hands on experience.

just magical

Stained Glass Museum maybe is not as obvious choice as Main Square or Wawel Castle, but definitely shoud be joined to your must-see list. That place is truly unique, consisted of still functioning workshop (yes, there's an opportunity to spy on the artists creating stained glass windows) and exhibition spaces. Here present meets the past.
Atmospheric and magical.

Amazing place full of people with passion. People who work in the studio are also guides, so they know all the details of the craft. I highly recommend.
