Apteka pod Orłem. Oddział Muzeum Historycznego Miasta Krakowa reviews
Like others have said, small but interesting. Also appreciated the witness testimonies although the screens were a bit fidgety to the touchscreens, so it was tough to transition to English sometimes..... more »
Fascinating and well curated museum. An honest account of the ghetto created during WW2. Helpful staff. Free entry. more »
This is a small museum dedicated to a tiny part of the story of the Holocaust. The museum is very interactive with drawers, cupboards and even jars you can explore. It would have been better had it better explained the role it played in the ghetto.
We visited this small museum with the intention of viewing the Schindler Factory afterward. There are very personal accounts of the pharmacist and how he helped the Jews in this historic place. Vivid descriptions of the Jewish ghetto and what life was like during WW2. It’s a nice, quiet museum where you CAN touch everything!
