If you do the free walking tour of the Jewish area 1st it will set you up for visiting the sole place in the Jewish ghetto that give them anything at all. This was all down to the propieter Jozef Pankiewicz and his loyal staff...More

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

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
