Nice ethnographic museum. 3 floors of permanent exhibition include reconstructions of vilage houses, school, mills and pottery workshop, classical ethnographic exhibition themed by crafts and an excellent naive art collection. The museum offers lockers and open wardrobe. The environment is kid friendly.

This museum is different to a lot of others in Krakow in that it features reconstructed interiors of traditional Polish peasant cottages and workshops. Also folk costumes, craft and trade exhibitions, beautiful Nativity scenes, religious paintings and woodcarving. It is actually housed within the former...More
