First, make sure you get reservations in advance on-line or in-person, as it's popular. This is an underground bit of Krakow under the Cloth Market in the main square, and it's essentially the early Medieval cloth market stalls underground, plus some town huts and workshops...More

This is a very educational place but also heartbreaking. Only downfall is they need the clips and audio in English. There is over 2 hours worth or reading here. And most of the English is small print which would be a lot better if bigger....More

Our expectation was that an interesting account of Krakow was to be found here. The reality was far removed from that. The display space was quite limited and what was exhibited was a somewhat desultory assemblage of pieces, without any obvious theme or continuity.

We came here because they had a brilliant exhibition on krakow advent scenes which were truly remarkable. The museum itself has a film on the castle and interactive screens to learn more mainly about krakow during the medieval period. It's a good history lesson.

A wonderful undergronded museum. Ancient rest of wall toghether with modern technology create an very exciting tour. You can try the scales and chose the measures of ancient times...ounce, pound. Conceived as a modern museum you can interact with antient times

However, it might be a good starting point for a foreigner who has no idea of the beginnings of Cracow.

It is extremely difficult to find words in which to express ones feelings having visited this museum which use to be the headquarters of the Gestapo. It certainly brings to light the extent of the autrocities people underwent in these buildings. The messages written on...More
