Founded in 1911 by the teacher and folklore enthusiast Seweryn Udziela (1857-1937) and located inside Kazimierz, this cultural place is often skipped by tourists, but offers wonderful and charming insight into Polish folk culture and traditions.

It includes beautiful recreations of 19th-century peasant interiors, folk costumes and instruments, and extraordinary examples of local creches of the nativity ('szopki').

The permanent exhibition is currently being upgraded with new exhibitions:
  • 'Od-nowa' (Again), focused on the rural rituals of spring in Poland (painted Easter eggs and the palm trees)
  • 'Inaccessible Land' - that guides visitors through hundreds of works of popular art by the words of Czesław Miłosz (an extract from his poem of the same name).
With exhibits sufficiently explained in English, those who visit here will be happily rewarded.

Dom Esterki - a gallery for changing exhibits can also be found nearby.

The Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum of Krakow (Polish: Muzeum Etnograficzne im. Seweryna Udzieli w Krakowie) is a museum in Krakow, Poland. It was established in 1902.
