Archaeology Museum

  ul. Poselska 3 ,   Old Town          (+48) 12 422 75 60     08 Oct 2018

Housed in an old monastery, the biggest highlight of the Archaeology Museum may be its beautiful garden (2zł charge if you aren't visiting the museum) - a great place to relax with fantastic views of Wawel in the distance. As for exhibits, they are a bit dated, but the museum does boast a big claim to fame - the Zbruch Idol - the only sculpture of a Slavic god in existence, and part of an exhibit on the prehistory of Małopolska. Other permanent exhibits include prehistoric pottery, Peruvian artefacts, and ancient Egypt - the latter including some beautiful shrouds, a number of intricately decorated sarcophagi and some mummified cats. Additionally, you'll find a permanent exhibit on the history of the museum itself and the monastery that houses it, for which a separate ticket is required (4/3zł), plus temporary exhibits.

The garden is nice...but it could also be a whole lot nicer. We paid 2 zloty each to go in thinking we would have a picnic there, read and relax...but there aren't any benches. There are some random communist-era sculptures around the place, but nothing special or unique. We were really disappointed that there were no benches and we just ended up walking around for a few minutes and leaving. What do they charge for?
