    We went to the museum to see the Di Vinci painting temporarily relocated to the main museum building. Great picture. Nice cafe, good coffee. Not sure about the piece of "art" outside though. Rest of m...  more »

    The "Lady with the Ermine" by DaVinci was the main reason we chose to make a major trek outside of the old town to get to the museum. We found the staff at the National Museum less than welcoming and ...  more »

    "The Lady with an ermine holding" Leonardo da Vinci has been moved to here. You can see this picture. I have the time, it did. It was a very beautiful picture. There was even crowded as the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, room make me one moment but (were guards).

  • Da Vinci exibition was great. The museum is big but feels quiet empty. There is a nice bar with good smoothies.
  • Absolutely fantastic place. Great collections, and super friendly staff. Everyone there was extremely pleasant from the cashier at the coffee shop, to the ticket salesperson and even the security. I left my wallet there and they kept it for me and I was able to pick it up. A+++++++++++
  • Not the best museum I have been to. It looks very interactive and great for Polish kids however. I wouldn't recommend as there are better choices but if you have free time, it's free on Sundays.
  • The permanent exhibit is less-than-enthralling. da Vinci is there at present!
  • Sumer's wheel was the first known invention of mankind 3500BC The Bronocice pot lies here. It is the first sign of the invention of the wheel.

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.
