  • Worth seeing place. And of course you can not forget out papal kremowki. On the right side ot the Papal figures I recommend cafeteria with delicious kremowkami in which equally is a koncik playground

  • Impressive to visit this House and its small museum which retraces the life of the Pope. This man and his amazing life are dramatized, described, explained in this if taking place. Personal items (even his skis), family apartment, austere, to imagine under the Communist era, and the Church which adjoins the House, in which he was baptized. Really to see.

  • A stage really must see places where began the history of God's athlete and know many details of his life. The town is easily accessible from Krakow bus station, with a short walk you will reach the main square where, next to the basilica, is the House of the Holy Father. Right on schedule with the booking we found waiting for a nun who took us around for over 1 hour in the Museum. We saw the House where he grew up, rebuilt in large part but with many original objects. Then a walk along the lesser known history, growth, the loss of her mother and brother, the University and work in the mines during the war, then the vocation and life at the head of the Catholic Church. There are also many of his objects and clothes, soil samples collected in over 100 pilgrimages, the gun for the attack in St Peter's square. It truly was a great experience.

  • Loved it because St. John Paul II had a huge influence in my catholic education... However, even though one of the sisters was really nice to us, the one that was giving the tour refused to speak in English, so we had to listen to everything in Polish. Of course, we didn't understand a thing and we had to go slower to try to read the English signs but (again) she refused to let us go slower (and yes, she did speak English to advise us to accompany the group). Well, it's still a great place to visit.
  • A beautiful tribute to a holy man. From such a simple beginning, he made a lasting impact on the world. St. John Paul II, pray for us!
  • Wadowice is such an amazing place - especially if you are interested in St John Paul the Great. His home has been meticulously reconstructed with so much history & artifacts of his life that have been carefully preserved...you have this incredible feeling of living the details of his life that were most important of shaping the life of this great man.
  • You will be amazed with this museum! I didn't expect it to be such a multimedia powerhouse as the tour began. In every new room my there was new surprise. It starts a bit slow but it gets better and better. Definitely worth a visit if you are near Wadowice.
  • beautiful small town perfectly clean the chapel where pjp preached was so peaceful
