Krakow’s rich history comes to life in its museums. From underground archaeological dig sites to reveal the old medieval core of the town to fascinating journeys through Polish folklore to sobering memorials of the horrors of WWII, there’s oodles to see here. Here’s just 12 to set the cultural ball rolling…
Because this large museum occupies a place on the far side of the dual carriageway leading out from the Krakow Old Town, it’s often not visited by the crowds that its fascinating exhibits probably warrant. The good news is that it means patrons might just get the whole place to themselves, as they wander the restored railway depot unravelling the heroic story of Poland’s famous Armii Krajowej (the honoured national resistance movement that combatted first the Nazis and then the Soviets).
