I had no interest in the religious aspect, but was interested to see the tribute to Krakow's pride, Pope John Paul II, and this was very well done from that perspective. This is a museum essentially dedicated to someone who lived his life during a...More

Being a fan of St. John Paul II a visit here was a must see. Plenty of vestments and items relating to his time particularly as Archbishop. Nobody else in the museum and you get real close to the works of art.
