Museum Gallery of the 19th Century Polish Art, Krakow

(400 reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
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.
