Cricoteka (Centre for the Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor) Tours

Cricoteka (Centre for the Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor)
Krakow's Cricoteka (Centre for the Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor) is a theater, exhibition space and bookshop dedicated to a bizarre brand of experimental theater and the local man who created it in 1955: avant-garde and controversial playwright, designer, director and artist Tadeusz Kantor. Visitors to the museum will walk through bizarre theater set designs with spooky mannequins, marionettes and costumes on display. There is also a gallery showing Kantor’s work in Ulica Sienna, which housed his theater company Cricot 2, as well as frequent temporary exhibitions of art inspired by his ideas.

A visit to the Cricoteka museum provides a change from the historical monuments and buildings of Krakow, showing a more contemporary side of the city. Visitors will enjoy the modern architecture of the museum—a former power station turned riverfront exhibition space with a rusted metal and black glass exterior—and great views of the city and Vistula River.

Having moved its headquarters to the Podgórze district in 2014, Cricoteka offers a modern piece of Polish cultural history in a clean, new and rarely crowded facility worth at least an hour's visit. Enjoy free admission to the museum and 40 other city attractions with a Krakow Museum and Transport Official Pass, including free, unlimited public transportation.
Cricoteka (Centre for the Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor) is located at Ulica Nadwiślańska 2–4, in the Podgórze district of Krakowa on the banks of the Vistula River. It is accessible by trams 3, 9, 19, 24 and 50, alighting at Podgórze.

The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11am to 7pm, and is closed on Monday. Admission is 10 PLN for adults; 5 PLN for seniors & students; and 15 PLN for family tickets. There is free entry on Tuesday. Visitors holding a Krakow Museum and Transport Official Pass are guaranteed free entry.
