“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Great visit. Loads of history. Very interactive. Suitable for all. Brilliantly put together. Great if you want to escape from inclement weather and the crowds. Our second visit and would still love to see again

“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Interesting, also worth a visit to the art gallery next door. Some days are free to gain entry, but only around two pounds sterling each to visit, in the main square, so visit the market and have a drink in the main square and watch the world go,by.

“Innovative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Rynek Underground is one of my favourite museums - interactive and innovative, yet historical at the same time. This is one of the best examples of integrating technology into such an environment, using motion sensors, holograms, 180 degree projections, and moving portraits (not unlike something out of Harry Potter) to educate visitors on medieval Krakow. The museum has also retained the archeological remains of the square's foundations and it is simply astounding to learn the entire main square was dug up for this purpose only within the last 10 years. We also went on a Tuesday, which has free admission.

“Perfect for kids on a rainy day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Excavations of the market are very cleverly displayed. The interior is interesting but the exhibits resort to fun activities (holograms, hunt for 10 buried objects) to engage. It is not educational enough for the adult visitor interested in life in the middle ages to merit a strong recommendation. Number of visitors limited, so reservation is probably a good idea, especially for more than just a solo visitor.
