Using excellent contemporary photographs this museum tells the chilling story of the Nazi destruction of Jewish Galicia. The size is spot on, you'll learn a lot without being exhaust. I found this so much more informative than the displays of religious artefacts in the synagogues....More

This place is elegantly done and beautifully set up. The pictures are outstanding and the story of the poor girl is troubling.. Will they ever find her? I hope so.. We spent about one hour reading and walking around here.. Well worth the visit..

It's a small museum but was very informative and we enjoyed taking our time to wander around. There is a little cafe and bookshop too.

Well worth the time spent. The story about Rwyka was very touching. It took us about 2 hours to leisurely walk around viewing the photos and explanations

Average museum but helpful if you want to see colored photographs of Jewish life inside Poland. Other similar museums are better. Only do if you have special interest /enough time.
