Had not planned to visit here but it caught my eye and I decided to go in. The museum is located in the old Synagogue. It is not a large exhibit and not particularly interactive so you need some time to read the labels which...More
We visited this synagogue after touring the Jewish quarter in Krakow.
It is extremely old and has many labels to read, but the staff cannot speak English and we could not speak Polish, so I am sure we missed and did not understand much.

There are no strict dress rules but common sense would dictate that respect must be shown. We wore just normal summer clothes although some other synagogues stipulate at their entrances any rules within their places of worship I.e. no shorts, flash photography etc. And these requests should always be respected and adhered to. It is a lovely place enjoy!
