  • Galicja Jewish Museum

    3. Galicja Jewish Museum

    The Galicia Museum is meant to honor the victims  of the Holocaust and to celebrate the Jewish heritage of Galicia. The permanent exhibition 'Traces of Memory', the result of twelve years of artistic work, is a reminder of the 800-year history of Jewish culture in Poland. Over 140 photographs made by the museum’s founder present the remnants of the Jewish presence in southern Poland - the former Galicia. The exhibition is also a record for the process of destruction of Jewish culture by the Nazis during WWII. The museum was established by Chris Schwarz, a British photographer whose numerous photos are related to Jewish culture in Poland. Chris Schwarz was the Museum’s director before he died in 2007. The Museum houses an exhibition space, a cafe, temporary exhibitions and concerts, meetings with authors, lectures and workshops. The museum also has a bookshop offering books in Polish, E...

    After the confusion of the start about children's authors, the exhibition shows lives of the Jewish people before during and after the war, which was interesting to see from a different perspective. This was the last thing we saw before we left krakow, spent an hour here

We stay a week in Krakow. With 3 days of city pass you can easily optimize it. If you stay short, it will be difficult to organize the visits with the opening hours etc because with 12 tourist districts it takes time to travel

Our hotel was located outer city so access to public transport (team) was great. Enjoyed visiting all o the museum's though the synagogue was under renovation (closes) and so too was the town hall

This is a fabulous deal we used the tram and bus and visited many of the sights. Well worth a look. We will but again when we go back.

very easy to use and saved time trying to buy tickets
