  • We visited this museum on a city break to Krakow. A little disappointing. Nothing was really explained clearly and it was difficult to read the descriptions of the displays as it was so dark.  more »
  • First time in Poland and I couldn't help but start from Krakow, the birthplace of John Paul II. Truly a beautiful city. On a human scale

  • Nothing to see really, only the stone outlines of later middle ages buildings, and a few findings such as jewelry and tools. Great work has been done on the texts describing life of the era, but this is something that can be easily be found on the Internet. A visit should take anything from 30 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the time spent reading the descriptions and the texts.
  • Good museum which is well laid out. Not sure the film was that good as it could have done with some captions. Glad we went but was maybe expecting a little more. Timed tickets made our visit not too crowded which was great but you do need to buy your tickets at least a few days in advance if you want to be sure of entry.
