Museum of Municipal Engineering
Lesser Poland Voivodeship
The Museum of Municipal Engineering assembles everything that concerns the history of Krakow city's engineering, transport and technological progress in one place. And this is the place to go to see the earliest trams, buses, motorcycles, radios, industrial machinery and much more.
The museum is very popular among both children and adults, and not just history buffs, due to its interactive touches. Everyone who is genuinely interested in Krakow and its development will be impressed how the city was like before and how it has changed through the ages.
This charming museum inside an old tram depot (what makes it all the more authentic and attractive) actually features five separate permanent exhibitions, plus temporary exhibits.
- The first two permanent exhibits deal with the history of public transport in Kraków and the development of the Polish automotive industry through a hangar full of old tram cars and trolleys and a large collection of unique wheeled vehicles.
- The third explores the history of printing in Kraków from the 15th to 20th centuries.
- Fourth is a look at engineering feats in the city.
- And "Around the Circle" teaches kids fundamental scientific principles via 30 hands-on play stations.
Outside you'll also find the small, seasonal "Garden of New Words" - basically a playground for 3-5 year olds. More fun than it sounds and recommended for families, the science exhibit will hold kids' interest long enough.
Great museum showing many information about Krakow's infrastructure history. Plus sections about technology and motorisation.
A great place to visit for children (older than 7 years, because the youngest can quickly get bored) and adults. In an accessible form explains how to operate many devices used in everyday life. There are many interesting exhibits, archives and the installation showed the effect of the phenomena or the laws of physics in practice.
Very nice technical museum. Lot of interesting showpieces.
A good place not only for kids of different ages. Part ekpozycji multimedia. It would be five stars if the part on the trams could enter in at least one of them. Watch the tram cars and the outside and at ground level in a confined room detract from the fun.
Choc magnificent place to learn through play is unfortunately already equiped can see traces of wear. Prices do not belong to high, family ticket £ 40.
For fans of the history of the automotive industry and urban infrastructure space with some terrific beads, pity in addition to a fully interactive rooms where children play sensational rest is already typical museum-style " do not touch the exhibits. "
Too bad the service who supervises each room is terribly bored and sitting with the head of the phone.
family ticket (2 + 2) is at a very affordable price.
probably available audio guides (with exhibits umiesczono symbols handsets with the number of recordings), but nowhere you can see information about their availability - you should ask at the box office.
the interactive rooms available is a changing room and a toilet.
Choc miejsce do wspanialej nauki przez zabawe to niestety na wyposazeniu widac juz slady zuzycia. Ceny nie naleza do wysokich, bilet rodzinny 40 zl.
Dla fanow histori motoryzacji i infrastruktury miejskiej miejsce z kilkoma wspanialymi perelkami, szkoda ze oprocz w pelni interaktywnych sal gdzie dzieci bawia sie rewelacyjnie reszta to juz typowe muzeum w stylu "nie dotykac eksponatow".
Szkoda ze obsluga ktora pilnuje kazdej sali jest strasznie znudzona i siedzi z glowa w telefonie.
Bilet rodziny (2 + 2) jest w bardzo przystepnej cenie.
Prawdopodobnie dostepne audioprzewodniki (przy eksponatach umiesczono symbole sluchawek z numerem nagrania) jednak nigdzie nie widac informacji o ich dostepnosci - nalezy pytac w kasie.
Na terenie sal interaktywnych dostepna jest szatnia oraz toaleta.
