Another of my "must see" museums in Kraków. It was a lot smaller than I was expecting so you only need 1 - 1.30 hrs. One big room but full of fantastic photos with really interesting information about old and recent Jewish history. Another one...More

A lovely little museum in the Kazimierz district. Beautiful display of photographs of disused synagogues, derelict Jewish cemetaries and Auschwitz. Extensive bookshop and comfy coffee bar with delicious cakes! Very well worth a visit.

Tucked away, this small museum shows Jewish history, guided tours available but just as easy to wander round and take it in. Worth a visit

I have visited both Krakow and this museum at least a dozen times. The coffee is always excellent and I always find an excellent selection of non-fiction books on Polish History. It will remain one of my favorite regular stops in Krakow.

This tiny museum tells the story of the Galician Jewish communities, totally derstroyed by the Nazis and how those are {not} commemorated. Worth your time to visit.

This is a small museum that portrays Jews in Krakow; before and after the holocaust. The exhibition tells the story of individuals as well as the community. The photos of Jewish homes are especially strong portraits.

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 :)
