At first this seems a little boring mostly in Polish and about excavation, then as you follow the tour path the history of Poland through the centuries develops, how they excavated the underground areas are all amazing, little caves having different films running giving all the history with English subtitles and it is really worth stopping and watching.

When the square was excavated years ago, workers found coins, tools and artifacts of archaeological significance. So city opened a museum, at 12 feet below street level you get a look at medieval life in Karkow.

A very interesting exhibition, which requires a little concentration! It tells the story of how the city rose level upon level and is well illustrated with good animation.

This was a bit of a shot in the dark for us but we are so glad we went. The interactive stuff is delivered in most EU languages and was one of the best aspects. If my grand daughters were with me they would have loved it. Recommended

If you are interested in a lot of rocks this is the place for you as there is not much more to see than this! Some skeletons and a horses skull are the most interesting part... also the touchscreen interactive displays do not work properly

The place is suitable for people with wheelchairs and baby strollers. You can all access almost every place there the museum is quite big. It is also very modern with a lot of interactive tablets and interesting expositions. The tickets where 38zl for two persons and pre-reservation is definitely a must. We had made a reservation, but people who arrived... More

Went out of our way to find this as it had been recommended to us. Unless you find yourself with nothing else at all to do then please don't waste your time or your money on this.

Really good subject matter and the , but we think that the execution could have been better. The labelling was a little dull and most of the time we weren't totally sure what we were looking at. They could have told a much better story about what happened and what it used to be.

This museum is located under the Old Market. It is a huge place with a lot of interesting and interactive features. Man can see there actual ruins, pictures, examples of how it was in the past. I really liked it!
