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.

  • Something for fans of painting, many famous works that live are making a huge impression. For an additional fee, you can rent an audio guide. We are happy to recommend to get there again. The only downside are bothersome, some that make school trips.

  • A city that offers davevro so many things to see and do, both in the downtown area but also moving into other neighborhoods, from the most famous Kazimierz to others. Two or three days to devote stnano us all.

  • I admit that we arrived in Krakow poorly organized. The catch is that it is a very religious town on 24 and 25 December everything was closed:-) or almost. The rate is roughly 1/4 euro. The kitchen, Funnily enough, is almost discrete everywhere. I recommend Beer Hous of Tom and Greg (thanks Nico & Ile for the tip). Locals close all prestissimo, 22:00 maximum (except Tom and Greg). The Wi-Fi there is everywhere but I suggest you a Sim which costs 4slotti (1 euro) x 100 GB. The Mall is open to the 22:00 and it is immense. Sample local honey vodka Morskie Oko, one can also dine and yummy food. The cold weather in December is pungent, pointless cover you have to warm up in a PUB. If you see girls with red umbrella that will approach the night are not prostitutes but working girls in Strip Club Visits must: 1) Auschwitz (35 € per person), The Salt Mines (€ 30 per person), the FREE tour around the city (to offer). Views that you can avoid: 1) the underground city, 2) 3) Wax Museum on tour with the trimmer cord that might also sbrodare and leave you walking. Things I haven't seen: 1) Zakopane 2) Schindler's factory (given name) 3) new and old Jewish district. Note: the Polakki seem to seem cold, judge for yourself.
