Museum of Engineering & Technology (MIT)

  ul. Św. Wawrzyńca 15 ,   Kazimierz          (+48) 12 428 66 00     16 Feb 2024

This large museum is located in a historic transport complex in Kazimierz. Preserved in its entirety, the depot evolved and expanded alongside changes in public transport from the era of horse-drawn trams at the end of the 19th century (when it first opened) through narrow- and standard-gauge electric trams, to buses at the beginning of the 20th century. Split in two by ul. Św. Wawrzyńca, today half of the complex hosts a brewery, while the other half is home to the main branch of Kraków's Museum of Engineering, one of the city's more kid-friendly cultural institutions.

The museum's permanent exhibit - titled 'The City: Technosensitivity' - tells a broad, chronological story about the development of engineering thought, the way it has transformed urban spaces and impacted the lives of inhabitants. Over 600 objects, including an interactive LAB Zone, will introduce visitors to the world of urban engineering, among them: 16th century wooden water pipes, a wooden stave washing machine, typewriter for the blind, Edison's phonograph, the first Polish telephones, cipher machines, radio receivers, a range of kitchen appliances, a Polski Fiat 508 car, vehicle prototypes, early computers and more. Consistently one of the city's best museums when it comes to interactive exhibits that will engage kids, check their website to see what's on in terms of temporary exhibits.

I guess they are really counting on tourists to go to this Gallery of Steel Figures, because those prices are ridiculous for local families...
