Branch of the historical museum- as in Schindler's factory. A compelling museum of photographs about of life in the Podgorze ghetto and information about a pharmacist who helped hundreds of Jews.

Good to take in as part of a tour with the Jewish District, the WWII Ghetto and Schindler’s factory. You can pay to go in, if you wish.

We bought the tickets for this museum from Discover Krakow (website) and the ticket included entry to Schindler's Factory and a synagogue. The pharmacy is very interesting though small and a little crowded if you're there at the same time as a group tour. We...More

The place is small, crowded and not your typical museum experience. Once you get over that, you can spend hours scrummaging through the drawers which have plenty of touching stories about actual individuals living in the ghetto. It is a very immersive experience and much...More

This little museum on Ghetto Heroes Square presents the story of the Krakow Ghetto through the eyes of the pharmacist Tadeusz Pankiewicz. Whilst it is small (just a few rooms) its message reaches far beyond its walls. It uses just a few artefacts and accounts...More

I didn’t even know about this museum until the day before I planned to go to the well known Schindler factory. To be honest the reason I decided to visit it is because I know I can get a combo ticket for the factory here...More

This is a small museum, however it is very interactive which keeps you busy. Basically this was the only pharmacy in the Ghetto during WW2 and the museum gives you insight to what life was like in the Ghetto. I enjoyed it and would recommend...More

Even though my husband hates museums he really enjoyed this one. Interactive so lots to find out. Every one should visit as it explains what happened during war.

Small, crowded, and a short- but worthwhile- visit. Grab a stool, ignore those crowded around you and hog one or two or three of the cabinets, reading the flip cards inside from beginning to end. They have stories and reminisces that are worth hearing. Reassuring...More

The pharmacy was placed by gate in the very heart of the Ghetto where it became witness to the inhuman deportations, monstrous crimes and the constant degradation of human dignity and self-respect of the occupants. Here Tadeusz Pankiewicz and his staff, provided aid to ghettoised...More
