“Rynek underground museum Krakow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

visited here while over in Krakow for a few days with my daughter....lots of info,displays and state of the art interactive things interesting for all ages....the halls you see above ground have been built over more ancient streets and shops/living quarters from many ages ago and the museum is the excavations of all this interwoven with the various reconstructions and interactive displays and panels....very reasonable indeed to get in and I would compare it to the viking centre in York,for anyone that has visited that...but this is a fraction of the cost....we have visited in in February so it is probably alot busier during the summer months....tickets can be bought from the office at the opposite side of the cloth halls....and only a certain number of people are allowed in at each visit..
well worth a visit when in Krakow...

New museum under the Silk Hall in Krakow's main square. Very informative and with state-of-the-art presentation techniques. Well worth spending an hour so there.

“Good museum, videos at the end are highly recommended!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Interesting museum underneath the famous square. A lot of information about which part of the city was at what depth and how they researched this.

I really recommend saving enough time (45 - 60 minutes) to view all the videos at the end of the exhibition. They are beautifully shot and cover different subjects.

“Worth seeing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Very well designed museum that gives you a real impression of the Square throughout the history of the city. Today it's full of souvenir shops and trendy cafes and restaurants, but the Museum shows you what the place was like when it was a real commercial center in Central Europe. Easily accessible for non-Polish speaking visitors. Recommended.
