Located at the corner of ul. Szpitalna and ul. Św. Marka, though modest in appearance, this historical building dates back to the 13th century. Originally a part of Holy Ghost Monastery, until the 18th century it served as hospital building. After WWI the building was used by an artists' union and Tadeusz Kantor's famous Cricot theatre group performed here before their success quickly outgrew the space. Hence the theatre connection, which the Kraków Historical Museum (Muzeum Krakowa) has honoured since taking over the building in 1949.
