Archdiocesan Museum in Kraków

Archdiocesan Museum in Kraków

Over one hundred years old, the Archdiocesan Museum of Kraków (Muzeum Archidiecezjalne) displays a large collection of sacral art from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century. It is housed in two centrally-located buildings.

Exhibitions

Throughout sixteen beautifully Baroque-styled decorated rooms are displayed more than 600 items, including paintings, sculptures and objects in gold. The earliest pieces date from the thirteenth century.

The museum houses a special part dedicated to Cardinal Karol Wojtyła (later John Paul II), who lived in the edifice in two occasions before becoming Pope.

For a very specific public

The Archdiocesan Museum is ideal for all tourists that take an interest in sacral art or would like to learn about the early life of John Paul II. For others, this museum might be a little disappointing.
