This museum was not widely publicized when researching our Krakow holiday, if it hadn't been for a mention from a friend we wouldn't have known to go looking for it. It is 'under' the main square below the cloth hall, on Krakow Old Town, well...More

A bit difficult to buy tickets, involved a bit of walking backwards and forwards but enjoyable. The interactive boards were great and allowed you to choose your language so could understand what was going on! Interesting to see how the city had evolved over time.

Found it a bit difficult to locate the ticket office which was the opposite side of the cloth hall to the entrance. Space is limited so you will probably need to get your ticket in advance. Touch screens in several languages guide you through the...More

Very beautiful old town: amazing buildings but you can explore The city with Uber or WoW Krakow. It’s an amazing old city and very good for Children as well.

We really enjoyed visiting this museum which is located under the Market Square. There's lots to see and it's well worth a couple of hours of your time to find out about the history of this fantastic city.

It was OK but nothing to write home about to be honest. It was clean and tidy. I would suspect it may be better for local people. Felt there was too much focus on 12th & 13th Century and I would have liked to have...More

Enjoyed the past time visit to this museum . Some of it was meaningless and repetitive . The highlight of the visit is towards the end of the visit when the underground history was discovered in 2005 . None of the security could speak any...More

I didn’t enjoy this at all. And I usually enjoy museums. I didn’t understand any of it, no plaques were in English. I’m guessing it’s the old towns foundations or something. Literally a load of rocks. For me it was a waste of my time...More

Well worth a visit, to see what Krakow was like before the present city built over everything and raised levels by a couple of metres...

Was all written in polish - so not good if you do not understand polish. Was not very interesting and over priced.

Hey. It's not in the cloth hall but in one of the doors on the outside of the building. You will need to book your slot online first and pick your tickets up on one side, then enter on the other (the entry is on the... More
