“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I wasn't in Kraków for a long time. I remember when almost half of Main Market Square was closed because of archeological works. And when I came back I had an opportunity to go and see the Underground Museum. It is wonderful - interesting, entertaining and smart. You can really see how did it look the Centre of Krakow in the past. With some animations, movies and moquettes you can easily time travel.
Before going there check on the museum website promotional ticket prices.
I recommend it for everyone. Not to be missed!

“Must see when in Krakow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

When you enter the underground you feel like you stepped into Medieval times. I was getting goose bumps while looking at the old stones that the streets were paved with. How many souls have walked them? How was life back then? It was so interesting to see the old tools and objects of everyday use. It was truly a fantastic experience.

“underwhelming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

they really did try to make something out of nothing here and we commend them for their effort. the ruins of ancient walls were neat to see but some exhibits were difficult to see as it was dark. the pyramid a la the Louvre was a nice touch but did nothing to add to the space below.
