    Absolutely amazing place. Lot of arcade games and pinball machines. Time flies when you have fun and in here you can't get enough of those games. You always want.to take a new game with your friends. Keep up the good work. We Finns loved the place and people who works here 🥳❤️😍

    The Jagiellonian University is one of the oldest universities in the world,its a series of 15 magnificent looking faculty buildings throughout Planty Park.

    Spent an hour or so looking around here, a great place to visit if medieval art is your thing, we almost had the whole place to ourselves which was nice but a shame more people don't check it out.

    The museum was very interesting, we particularly enjoyed the Peruvian exhibit and the scale models of different civilisations per time period.

    Unfortunately some of the exhibits were closed including the garden, however we still had a lovely visit.

    The staff were very friendly and guided us around the exhibits.

    Overall, we would recommend (particularly for the good price!) But maybe check which exhibits are open ahead of time.

    It's a beatiful building, right in the centre of Cracow. Good to visit from history and art perspective.

    I appreciate Art Nouveau and since admission was included with my National Museum ticket I decided to pay a visit. There are numerous sketches and paintings on display as well as period furniture and personal photos. It is apparent that the curators went through some effort to make the house look like it did when Mehoffer lived in it and yet the space allows his work to be showcased. It is a great glimpse into the late 19th/early 20th century and definitely worth an hour or two of your time.

    I rather enjoyed this small gallery, which had a fair entrance fee, and a small but valuable collection of European art, which included a Rembrandt, to Brueghel's, as well as a Canova bust, amongst other great pieces.

    We were lucky enough to visit for free as it was a Wednesday, don't know if it would be worth paying for at full price though.
    We were surprised by how well preserved everything was.
    The rooms were all well looked after and there was information on each one in English as well as other languages, it is a good insight as to how well off and influential families lived.
    We really enjoyed our short visit here.
