Full description
In the 19th century, the building changed its function completely. The Austrians, who were stationed in Krakow at that time, established a prison here. Paradoxically, the place inherited the name of the monastery and became known as the prison of St. Michael. It was closed down after WWII, and the Archaeological Museum was established here. The most famous attraction is the statue of Światowid – a pagan god with four faces from the 9th and 10th century, which was discovered in 1848 in Zbrucz.

It is only the entrance but it is an interesting museum to see.

Interesting museum. The only downside is that in the rooms, where it must be dark due to the exhibits, there are no illuminated descriptions. Still worth recommending.

Interesting museum with Polish and Egyptian artefacts. Helpful staff and cheap tickets. Garden outside the museum is a nice place to relax as well. Museum is easy to reach from the city center.
