  • Krakow: The Ethnographic Museum Entry

    3. Krakow: The Ethnographic Museum Entry

    Discover Krakow's Ethnographic Museum. The Town Hall section features an exhibition which highlights Polish folk culture, while the museum's second building, the so-called Esterka's House, contains temporary displays in its beautifully-vaulted cellar. Derived from a small collection gathered by Seweryn Udziela, the current exhibitions consist of around 80,000 showpieces, the majority of which are from the end of the 19th century and the early 20th century. A certain haven for the peasant culture of Krakow, the Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum invites all visitors to have a look around its precious and extensive collections. These exhibits shed light on the artists' attraction to the liveliness of folklore, which they saw as an antidote to the stagnation and cultural crisis among Polish intelligentsia from the turn of the 20th century.

We stay a week in Krakow. With 3 days of city pass you can easily optimize it. If you stay short, it will be difficult to organize the visits with the opening hours etc because with 12 tourist districts it takes time to travel

Our hotel was located outer city so access to public transport (team) was great. Enjoyed visiting all o the museum's though the synagogue was under renovation (closes) and so too was the town hall

This is a fabulous deal we used the tram and bus and visited many of the sights. Well worth a look. We will but again when we go back.

very easy to use and saved time trying to buy tickets
