    Is there any kind of entry fee for any of the events on both the days?? Did not get a clear idea after going through the main website for the same.

      As you can see on the Historical Museum site there is free admission to the following MHK branches: Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory, the Eagle Pharmacy, 2 Pomorska Street – for individual visitors between 10.00 am and 6.00 pm. The open air events are free, as far as I know the last year event but for the indoor activities you would have to check with MHK.
