Ethnographic Museum in Krakow

Ethnographic Museum in Krakow

The Ethnographic Museum is inside an imposing Renaissance style building in Krakow’s Kazimierz district. It houses an extensive collection that illustrates the popular Polish culture.


Inaugurated in 1911 by Seweryn Udziela, the museum nowadays has a collection of over 80,000 items that reflect Polish peasant culture, as well as European and worldwide folklore.

The various exhibits include miniatures, recreations, drawings and photographs and all types of items that show the culture of the country.


The Ethnographic Museum is curiously interesting. Nevertheless, in our opinion, it isn’t a must-see museum. We would only recommend it to visitors staying in Kraków for a few days, or those who have already visited the city's top attractions.
