Established in 1899, Kraków’s History Museum - also known as Krzysztofory Palace - has undergone an extensive transformation, including the gradual restoration of the 17th century Baroque building that houses it, and the complete digitisation of the museum collection. While parts of the building remain under renovation, the new permanent exhibit is open: Cyberteka. Kraków - Time & Space chronicles the spatial and urban development of the city from its earliest beginnings until about 1915, via spiffy multimedia displays and 3D films (note this exhibit is free on Tues). This market square building is also home to a large museum shop with lots of souvenirs, posters, books and other information available.
