Krakow

Gallery of Steel Figures

  Pl. Jana Nowaka-Jeziorańskiego 3 ,   Old Town          (+48) 500 50 01 00     20 Nov 2018
The initiative of Mariusz 'Jose' Olejnik, who began the GSF in Pruszków, this sculpture art exhibit features over 50 figures and sculptures made entirely by hand from recycled scrap metal - springs, nuts, bolts, gears, and chains - the components of which are still visible. Inspired by Madame Tussaud's, most of the exhibit is figures made on a 1:1 scale, but rather than simply celebrities the collection is more of a pop culture grab bag that includes Transformers, superheroes, cartoon and film characters, plus full-sized cars and motorcycles - and you can touch all of them without reproach. Today the GSF employs about 120 artists all over the world to expand the collection, which has additional exhibits in Pruszków, Warsaw, Prague and Gliwice. Kraków's exhibit is a quick diversion, and though the sculptures are impressive on first view, their uniformity begins to blunt their impact after about a dozen. Located in Kraków's former train station, honestly we were just as impressed by how great the old station now looks with its elegant chandeliers and balconies. Inside you'll also find the similarly over-priced Historyland, but there's a combined ticket for both attractions: 45/32, family ticket 135zł.

For something that takes 10 minutes to see, this is way overpriced.
