The Hipolit House is a museum that is part of the Historical Museum of Krakow. It was originally a house owned by the Hipolit family, a family of merchants that was rich and wealthy.
While the building is quite old, the Hipolit family lived here between the 16th and 17th centuries. Today this has been transformed into a series of recreations of typical Polish bourgeois living spaces from the 17th to the early 20th century, and it is interesting for the ideas it gives into how the other half lived as well as being a showcase for some truly remarkable furniture and antiques.
Walk into Hipolit House and examine some stunning timepieces that are found around the building. Learn about the customs, morals, and rites of the Polish bourgeois from the times mentioned above and get to know the history behind it all when you visit this unique attraction. All the furniture, paintings, and other exhibits in the house reflect the lifestyle of the rich from earlier times in Poland.
The stone portals and cellars are authentic and go way back to the 14th century. Explore the permanent exhibition titled Bourgeois House to know more about the way the rich of Krakow furnished their rooms. Explore the recreations of the interiors of the townhouses of Poland's elite and check out the fabulous pieces of furniture on display. View the beautiful paintings on the walls and across the building; they are a visual treat and add greatly to the aesthetics of the building.
As you walk through the different rooms in Hipolit House you could be excused for thinking some of the rooms are filled with material to the point of being overstuffed. There are a number of temporary exhibitions as well
