    Small But Mighty
    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.

    Excellent museum
    It was an excellent experience. we learned about Jews in Poland during WW2, specially in Galicija, by reading the story of Pisek family. A moving story. The museum also celebrates the Jewish culture and it features an interesting photographic exhibition. There’s a coffee shop and a book store.

    Incredible- one of the best museums I’ve visited in a long time
    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.

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.

Really good perspective from a families point of view during the war. Taken from diary input and some wax drawings to depict their story gives you an immersive experience. Would highly recommend this!

A fascinating photographic story about Jewish history over the past 100 years, with each section focusing on a different aspect of life, the holocaust and recent renaissance in the city. More interesting than the rather predictable Schindler factory, but do visit both to see for yourself

Great museum, absolutely clear in its approach and its structure. I learned a lot about Jewish life and death in Galicia throughout the decades.
