Fascinating and sad photo exhibition
Oct 2020 • Solo
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.

I was crying within minutes

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.

Great place!

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!

We were the only visitors so had the place to ourselves

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

Excellent museum
Dec 2019
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.

Fantastic museum with heartbreaking stories

Great museum, absolutely clear in its approach and its structure. I learned a lot about Jewish life and death in Galicia throughout the decades.

A moving story, well told
Dec 2019 • Couples
We spent our time here carefully reading through the panels which told the story of a Jewish family in Krakow at the start of the second World War.

They survived an extraordinary journey which ended when they were settled in what became the State of Israel.

They were sent from Krakow by the Russians rather than the Germans and so their story unravels rather differently to what we would expect.

I'm not sure how long this exhibition is on but I'd certainly recommend it.

PERFECT.
Nov 2019
Perfect time spent at the museum and with a guide at a few places out of Krakow. You may arrange this on their website. Also met a Holocaust Survivor at the museum. Great for individuals and groups. Larysa our guide at the museum and All day Wednesday at Tarnow, Bochnia and the Mass Grave in Buczyna Forest was amazing, informative and sensitive as was Mr Wlodzimierz who guided us at Plaszow Camp. Will definitely be back next year with the next group of students and tecahers.

Truly Moving

Museum was free as part of our hop on hop off bus. Lots of reading but very well laid out, giving you personal experiences/stories from individuals/families. A coffee/cake bar was at the end of the exhibition, plus the opportunity to buy books. I could have bought them all, wanting to learn more!!
