“Rather confusing”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a place where you have to book and get allocated a time. You pay 17zl to enter and from the moment we arrived we felt rather confused about the setup. There didn't seem any logical route to walk around and the exhibits were rather strange, although there are lots of interactive screens to touch it didnt help. I was expecting great things for this place. The pits towards the end were interesting but I think if you were Polish you may find this more enjoyable than I did.

“Underground museum.”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Well worth a visit, especially on Tuesdays when it's free. Very interesting for Children (and adults) as there are lots of touch screens, holograms, small cinema areas, also open archiology pits with the relics visible.

“great for kids”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

I have visited this place with my girlfriend last summer. I have to say that we were really excited about it. New museum, good reviews. But we were disapointed. We are both adults and we were not impressed at all. Theres not much out there really. It's a great place for kids because they can almost 'touch' old Krakow and have a general view of the past. For adults it may be boring experience.

“Rynek underground museum Krakow”
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...
