With the exception of the major Holocaust museums this smaller museum primarily containing a photo gallery of the atrocities committed to the Jewish population of Krakow is an amazing & confronting display. The display takes you through 5 stages of life before, during & after...More

This was a stunning museum experience. It focuses on Jewish life in Galicia and the Jewish spaces that have been both abandoned and re-enlivened by the community. The temporary exhibition right now (on the role of blood in the Jewish religion and identity) is amazing...More

This museum is primarily photography and painting. Each picture was thought provoking and emotionally touching with commentary to provide context. A good place to visit if short on time. Cafe and gift shop also located within.

Fantastic place to visit. I found this museum to be very informative and you could immerse yourself in the history of the area and WW2 events without the monstrosities being in your face, so to speak. I found some of the other museums difficult to...More

I stayed in a similar location to where you will be. It's a leisurely walk (maybe 30 mins max) or a 10 mins taxi ride. Enjoy :)
