  • We found it by coincidence and the best part - we go there on Sunday so it was for free! (they don't charge the fee on Sundays) I loved the exhibition about Egiptians. It has a great exhibition overal...  more »
  • We took a while to find this as it wasn't well signposted and the location on our map was that clear. There was plenty to see but it just wasn't that interesting. Some of the displays were past their ...  more »
  • Fine selection of mummies & sarcophagi. Not to mention the Peruvian and prehistory sections. My seven year old was at little scared of the full body skeletons in the floor with the glass covers "its r...  more »

  • Larger than it looks inside. Personally, the exhibits weren't very interesting and the museum was very dark (and slightly creepy due to this). There are automatic lights that turn on when you enter a new area but they take some time so I was walking in the dark into hallways alone most of the time. There's also a section where you can visit the underground prison. This was extremely creepy (again delayed light while you enter a prison cell) but fascinating as well.
  • Awesome museum. Would have given it 5 stars if it had the English audio tour available. The Egyptian display is amazing, with 2 mummies on display, plus many other awesome things.
  • Nice overview of the archaeology and history of Krakow, several hands on exhibits for the kids.
  • Very interesting for kids and parents. Free on Sunday.good egipt area
  • Not all that much to see, or presentations are dated, not that well done. Go on free day or your spend time & money seeing something else

Where to stay in Krakow

Krakow ranks among one of Europe's increasingly popular tourist destinations, which is reflected in the rising costs of comfortable lodgings. The best hotels are concentrated in and around the historical old town, where five-star luxury comes at a very steep price. Old town hotels place you just steps from fine shops and restaurants, as well as the city's main museums and galleries. However, if your trip involves a tight budget, avoid the central district and check out mid-range hotels and economical hostels in one of the outlying neighborhoods.
