I only expected to spend about 20 minutes here but that turned about 1.5 hours. The photo exhibition on Jewish history and monuments in Galicia is excellent and fully translated into English. The captions succinctly describe the haunting photos. The museum is included in the Krakow Card.

This museum really got to me. The photos are incredible and give such an insight into Jewish life in the city- the horrible things that happened but also the enduring spirit and culture of the people. Even if you think you know a little about what happened, it is likely that there will be so much that you don't.

Really good perspective from a families point of view during the war. Taken from diary input and some wax drawings to depict their story gives you an immersive experience. Would highly recommend this!

A fascinating photographic story about Jewish history over the past 100 years, with each section focusing on a different aspect of life, the holocaust and recent renaissance in the city. More interesting than the rather predictable Schindler factory, but do visit both to see for yourself

It was an excellent experience. we learned about Jews in Poland during WW2, specially in Galicija, by reading the story of Pisek family. A moving story. The museum also celebrates the Jewish culture and it features an interesting photographic exhibition. There’s a coffee shop and a book store.
