Krakow: The Ethnographic Museum ticket

3. Krakow: The Ethnographic Museum ticket

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.

4. Ethnographic Museum - Esther's House ticket

W tym miejscu, u zbiegu ulicy Krakowskiej oraz Trynitarskiej, stały wpierw gotycka kamienica, wybudowany w XIV w. Z tego czasu zniszczenia się piwnice. Czasy późniejsze (XV i XVI w.) pamiętane z części murów na następstwa, a także na wydarzenia związane z pozostałościami kamieniarki datowanej na ok. 1430 r. Potoczna nazwa, „Dom Esterki”, związana z legendą o miłości Kazimierza Wielkiego do Żydów Estery, a dom miał być miejscem ich potajemnych schadzek. W XVI w. architekt kamienicy był Bartolommeo Berrecci, włoski architekt i rzeźbiarz wczesnego renesansu, krytyczny na dworzec króla polskiego Zygmunta I Starego. (Otrzymany na obywatelstwo Krakowa, był nawet rajcą miejskim i posiadał w mieście kilka kamienic. Spoczywa w pobliskim kościele Bożego Ciała.) Berrecci kamienicę charakterystyczną z kolei córce Annie, a ta w 1543 r. sprzedała ją ławnikowi kazimierskiemu Stanisławowi Foxowi. Dom został wyremontowany i przebudowany w XIX wieku, w latach 1978–1985 gruntownie remont, podczas gdy zostały zrekonstruowane detale kamieniarki, obramienia okienek piwnicznych oraz cokół z okładziny z płyty piaskowca. Kamieniarka źródłowa pochodzi z przełomu XVII i XVIII wieku. W wyniku tego remontu kamienicy, przywrócono formy z przebudowy dokonanej w XIX w. W roku 1987 budynek przekazano Muzeum Etnograficznemu w Krakowie. Obecnie jest miejscem wystaw czasowych, przedmiotów edukacyjnych, mieszczących się także w części naukowej, w tym specjalistycznej Bibliotece Muzeum, oraz biurze.

Our meeting point was easy to find and Mathew arrived on time. We were a group of four and two other people joined us which really made the tour. He was a wonderful guide and we saw all the main areas of Krakow. The tour also gives you a background to Krakow. If we wanted to take pictures or go inside a Church Mathew said we had time. He was a knowledgeable guide who answered our questions and smiled the whole time. We would definitely recommend this tour. Thankyou

Excellent choice for orientation. Especially if you are visiting the city for the first time, courtesy and availability at the info points. It was not so clear at the beginning that to get the card you need to show up with the paper or send an email with the voucher to the info point, but this is a detail.

Absolutely fantastic couple of hours. Driver/guise extremely knowledgeable. Very friendly and so very funny. Went above and beyond to make our sight seeing trip a most pleasant experience.

Filip was amazing super knowledgable about the city and its history! We loved the ease of being able to explore smaller streets in the buggy so we recommend this!

A great tour which was very informative and our tour guide Phillip was very knowledgeable.
