Incredible museum- cannot recommend this highly enough. All visitors to krakow should visit.

The temporary exhibition was so moving and well delivered, as we learnt the story of Richard Ores, a young Jewish man who lived in Krakow and experienced the Holocaust first hand before moving to the US. This exhibit raised such important questions and considerations.

The main exhibitions were outstandingly well done- I just cannot express how impressed I was by this museum. I felt I learnt so much about Jewish history and culture in Krakow- before, during and after the atrocities committed by the nazis.

You must visit this museum.

I really enjoyed the exhibitions in this museum. They are mainly photographic and narrative in nature, as opposed to artefacts - but I like this sort of thing. I learned a lot about the Jewish experience in Krakow, especially during the Holocaust. I have given it only four stars (instead of five) because there was one section that was not available in English (the QR code to dowlonad the English captions didn't work), and there was no seating for older people or those with bad backs - like me. But overall, this was a great place to visit if you're interested in modern history.

The museum is quite small and mostly consists of photographs and short videos, but it is not necessarily a bad thing. In this case they made the whole history of Jewish heritage in Poland feel somewhat personal and almost intimate which I think make impact of the place come of stronger.

More an exhibition than a museum in the true sense of the word, as the history was told mostly in photographs rather than artefacts, but moving none the less. Heartbreaking (and sometimes uplifting) to read the stories of individual lives before, during and after the war. Definitely worth visiting

My wife and I, along with another couple, visited this museum while in the Former Jewish Quarter, We were fortunate to be the only guests in the facility at the time, and had a young guide all to our own. The combination of the visual displays, and the easily read labels, coupled with the guide's expertise and added emphasis, we found ourselves movingly educated, and emotionally touched. It is a small facility, with a potentially big impact.

A very thought provoking museum to visit, in some respects more thought provoking than the camps, because it is about individuals and their stories, i will leave this review wit a very though proving quote, Mummy will it hurt when they kill us, No my dear it will be very quick, little did they know we would live with for ever, no more need to be said

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.

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.
