The Archaeological Museum of Kraków (Polish: Muzeum Archeologiczne w Krakowie) is a historic museum in Kraków, Lesser Poland Voivodeship, Poland. It was established in 1850.
The Archaeological Museum in Kraków is the oldest archaeological museum in Poland. It was founded as the Muzeum of Antiquity, by a group of intellectuals and academics who belonged to the Kraków Scientific Society (Towarzystwo Naukowe Krakowskie, TNK) during the Partitions of Poland. The foreign rule in the Austrian Partition prohibited the existence of Polish patriotic organizations except for the learning societies like the TNK; which in turn, set up a museum as centre of Polish socio-cultural activities. The TNK society which sponsored the museum foundation, existed in Kraków since 1816. It has formed its own Division of Art and Archeology in 1848.

A very nice museum. Interesting expositions. Not much local artifacts, but the ancient Egyptian collection is great. The mummies room is very atmospheric. I did especially like the human culture evolution room, it have a beautifully done models.

Not bad, but if you have limited time there are tons of better options in Krakow for you. Maybe it's just because I am not that enthusiatic about Egpytian stuff.

Not a lot of local Archaeology. Lots of Egyptian. Recommend going to Rynek Underground instead

One of the coolest museums I've ever seen. Definitely don't miss this place if you like archaeology or history itself. Free entrance every Monday.
