  Pl. Jana Nowaka-Jeziorańskiego 3 ,   Old Town          (+48) 530 90 30 53     18 Mar 2019

This pricey family attraction inside Kraków's former main train station attempts to bring Polish history to life in a way that will appeal to kids - via multimedia displays with LEGO. There are exactly 10 detailed displays of PL's proudest historical moments, from the Battle of Grunwald to the Gdańsk shipyard protests. Each is enhanced to moderate success with some sort of animation, interactive play, or VR technology (in one case); our favourite by far was the game where you get to try and play Kraków's bugle call yourself. There are also touchscreens with long historical info in English (and Spanish) for those who don't know what they're looking at, but we found the texts to be overly exhaustive and too much to read (especially if you're with kids). Separately, there's also a fancy LEGO shop on site where nothing has a price tag (hmmm...), and a play area where you can hang and build with three different types of LEGOs for as long as you want; being free, the latter is probably the most recommendable part of this enterprise. Overall our kids enjoyed it, but we left feeling a bit fleeced. Also in the former train station is the Gallery of Steel Figures; combined ticket for both attractions 49/35, family ticket 145zł.

We went - 2 adults, 2 kids - and got charged 89zł. On our tickets it said the price was 22.25zł each. Whether 63zł or 89zł, you're right to say that this is overpriced compared to other things we did in Kraków, and not as interesting in my opinion.
