Pope John Paul II lived here, twice. Once as fledgling priest Karol Wojtyła, and later in grander, adjacent rooms as Bishop of Kraków. Today a museum, inside you'll see everyday objects and artefacts from the Pope's time here, as well as gifts he later received as Pope, exhibited in the very rooms he once lived in; plus lots of sacral art, and temporary exhibits. All very nice, and certainly the most accessible museum about the Pope in Kraków, but this one should probably be reserved for true papal enthusiasts. A second branch of the Archdiocesan Museum is located at the John Paul II Centre in Łagiewniki, while a third - the Wojtyła Apartment at ul. Tyniecka 10 - shows the apartment where the future pope lived with his father in the late 1930s (free admission).
