Visited here after the Shindlers Museum experience. Well worth the visit and another somber and sincere presentation of the horrific facts of the occupation of Kracow.

Charming museum, good and interesting items. We did visit in the last hour near to when they was closing, but still had plenty of time to see all the exhibits. Definitely worth a visit.
