Overview

This Kazimierz corker is one of the best bets in Cracow for children, especially if it's raining cats and dogs outside. Located in a sprawling complex of buildings that once housed a tram station, the museum showcases weird and wonderful treats from the world of engineering, as well as a panoply of motor cars, motorbikes and other intriguing automobiles. There are plenty of mad professor type inventions for children to play with (resoundingly safe one might add) with bubble machines, magnetic contraptions and all kinds of other things that Science teachers would love to run away with to make their lessons more fun.

Great (temporary) exhibition on the Fiat 125p and good interactive engineering section for children. However, the tram section was disapointing with just trams - no names, no tram history, sociology, economics, engineering etc. Best local source of tram information, with vodka, is the 'Tram Bar'...More

The medium sized museum is dominated by its current exhibition, fortunately when we visited it was the recently opened story of the Fiat 125p. Charting the cars journey from the priveledged few through to communist workhorse decades later. Lots of variants on display including rally,...More

This is not a Big place and consequently exhibition space is limited. There was a history of the Polski Fiat 125 on complete with a stretch limo version. There was also a potted history of printing in another building. The tram shed was disappointing with...More

If you are interested in the history of technology, you would enjoy this museum, and learn about Krakow along the way.

We went there with our kids. The museum has two sectors. One that you can interact with and the other with cars and things of municipal engineering. You need less than an hour to see it.

I had a very interesting afternoon looking round this place! The layout is a little confusing for the first time visitor, but once you have got your bearings it's not too bad. The museum is split into 3 different zones, one is mechanical engineering, municipal...More
