  • Part of one of our best days in Krakow that almost wasn’t! We nearly left after visiting the first room thinking that was all because the entrance fee was so reasonable. We turned the narrow corner and discovered multiple nooks and crannies all expertly curated that took us on a two hour journey. A must see! Watch for times and lines. Capacity is limited.
  • It said at the entrance that the tickets for that day were sold out, but as we went in to ask they happened to have 7 tickets left for the time slot. The museum was amazing, the decor and music in each room made you feel as if you were in that period, feeling how the polish and Jewish people felt. This was an educational experience and I would thoroughly recommend it!
