Museum of Municipal Engineering (MIM) was established in 1998 in the historic tram depot halls in the Kazimierz district of Krakow.

A restored complex of buildings in Wawrzyniec gathers collections related to urban communication and engineering in Krakow and selected issues from the history of technology - including

  • sound and image reproduction;
  • household;
  • crafts and industry;
  • measuring instruments.

Through interactive educational activities (the offer of an outdoor branch - the Garden of Experiments named after Stanisław Lem, workshops, museum lessons, walks), the museum promotes knowledge about science and technology in an accessible and interesting way.

The perfect location is undoubtedly a huge asset of the museum. Kazimierz Kazimierz practically visits Polish and foreign tourists throughout the year. In the spectacular, industrial spaces of the museum, prestigious cultural events such as the Sacrum Profanum or the Classic Moto Show are organized, but also large industry conferences take place every year. During the year, the museum and its branch - Garden of Experiences is visited by over 250,000 people.



Education - we organize popular science museum lessons for various age groups, for trips, but also weekend classes for individual recipients. Examples of workshops:

  • We are building a hovercraft.
  • Black or red tomatoes?
  • We draw paper.

We organize regular, open meetings about design, new technologies and new media.

Birthday in the museum - creative fun during special educational activities. Sample topics: Cooking-spellbinding, Painting with light.


Printing workshop.

The Krakow Technology Route is a city route of industrial heritage - the first of its kind in Poland. Its route connects the most valuable objects of the local industrial heritage, located in the very center of the city and in its close vicinity. We organize walks (also bike tours) along the trail.
