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 that have been long built over. A lot of displays of artifacts and interpretational displays in Polish and English. Lots of areas to watch films if you wish as well. Some very clever displays and modern films of the local history. My wife absolutely loved the place. many commonplace medieval artifacts that one would not otherwise see. Admission was 60 zloty for both of us, about $20, a bargain.

Amazing museum with a lot of history. Very cosy and nice decoration. The museum is in the center of Krakow.

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. Do not get a tour here as they are ridiculous over priced. Do not get a taxi from out side as they are over double. I would recommend a uber or calling a service.

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.
