Museum Gallery of the 19th Century Polish Art, Krakow
(4.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Hidden out of sight underneath the market square, Museum Gallery of the 19th Century Polish Art traces the history of the city via archaeological exhibits. Passageways through excavated structures help to demonstrate how people lived and what trade and industry were like in Krakow generations ago. Although it showcases centuries-old artifacts, the museum is quite modern in design and uses videos and interactive displays. Because the entrance can be hard to find, seek out the visitor center at Cloth Hall on the square and inquire there about how to access the museum. Use our Krakow trip itinerary planner to visit Museum Gallery of the 19th Century Polish Art on your trip to Krakow, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • The gallery presents the most famous images of Polish artists. There are monumental works Matejko, Podkowiński Frenzy and others. A must have. Breathtaking views of the city from the restaurant on the cloth Hall. Good and affordable meals.

  • The previous visit to the Krakow Cloth combine of stalls with crap for tourists. Just yesterday I discovered that these shops is the Museum, about which I knew, that is in Krakówie but did not know where. So the same information about the Museum is not enough. Must see Museum necessarily consists of 4 rooms. In one of them we have brilliant images by Jan Matejko, shocking its enormity and genius. You can stand and admire. A must on a map of Krakow!
