This rather bonkers branch of the Kraków History Museum, located in a small park near the bus station, is dedicated to the history of the uniquely Cracovian 'Fowler Brotherhood' - essentially a male-only cult of hunters and marksmen who wear strange hats, worship a silver chicken and have their very own king. In existence since the end of the 13th century, the history of the Brotherhood and their role in the defence of the city is laid out courtesy of a series of oil paintings, guns, teapots, photographs and other relics, while inside the Sharpshooters’ Hall you'll see the object of their adoration - a mystical silver chicken from the 16th century. There's plenty of fodder for a parody here, and the cock jokes literally write themselves; we'll just say that despite being well-presented, we left wondering why we had visited sober on a nice day.
