It is a little hard to find the entrance to this underground museum but it is worth the effort. It details artifacts from hundreds of years ago that were accidentally found when performing street repair in front of cloth hall about a decade ago. The displays include holograms, projectors, and glass floors to explain life in medieval Krakow. It is... More

Visited after booking earlier in the day at the information desk on the outside of the hall. We booked our group in for 4pm and paid for our tickets. After a change of plan we returned to try to change out time but were not helped by one of the counter staff(rather unhelpful really). We asked another member who directed... More

Don't waste your time unless rocks and stone interest you. Museum of complete nothingness, we were waiting to get to the good part; spoiler: it doesn't come.

This underground museum has been very modernised and has lost touch with it's original purpose. Personally, I didn't enjoy this museum. It's definitely not a must see attraction whilst visiting Krákow.

Do not miss this exhibition - not only fascinating in its story of old Krakow but also a masterclass in how museums can be created to both educate and entertain.

Interesting but the museum has been made too modern and not really in keeping with the information it was telling.

A great modern day museum, about the old town square, very informative for all ages, nice to hear and see some off the old square history, done in a modern way, worth the entrance fee,

This msueum extends underground over half the market square so impressive in itself - the pictures of when they dug up the square to create the museum in 2010 were very impressive. You can see the foundations of the buildings. There are some good short films about Krakow over the eras which are worth a look. Good place to warm... More

We visited this museum on our last day in Krakow and found it very interesting so well worth spending a couple of hour going to this underground place.
