I strongly recommend visiting the museum before the dinner or lunch in famous Karzimierz District. It may take more than one hour. Before the Second World War, 25% of Krakow's population were Jews living in Karzimierz. Probably before the war even 30-40% of all the...More

This museum commemorates the Galician Jewish history and the countless Jewish communities that were extinguished during the Holocaust. In a large series of recent photographies is documented what little remains today, typically in terms of tombstones, ruins and a few memorial sites. Well worth a...More

started off well but after a bit there were less exhibits & just photos, would have preferred more exhibits as it was a museum after all

I feel like this is the first place you should visit in Kraków. It gives you an insight in to the Jewish history and culture in the city. Good preparation before visiting Auschwitz.

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 :)
