Galicia Jewish Museum, Krakow

4.2
#10 of 68 in Museums in Krakow
Visit Galicia Jewish Museum, a small but modern museum in a culturally rich Jewish quarter, Kazimierz. The exhibits attempt to showcase the vibrant life that the neighborhood was once known for. It was founded in 2004 by photojournalist Chris Schwarz to celebrate the Galicia Jewish population that was decimated in World War II. The central exhibit features a series of photographs called "Traces of Memory" that share the history of the Galicia Jews over 800 years. Three different temporary exhibits rotate through the attraction year-round. The open space, resembling a factory, is popular for events, concerts, film screenings, and lectures. Visit the attraction's website for a current schedule. Both the founder of the museum and the scholar who helped him are British, so all the information is available in English.

  • This is a pure photographic exhibition, probably nothing for the smaller children. Text in Polish and English. Interesting to read but as I said, only a photo exhibition.

  • Photographic Museum offering an alternative observation point, through numerous photographs. Beautiful also the structure in its simplicity

  • Really interesting and thought-provoking photographs on Jewish life after the war. Calm and spacious surroundings. Really nice café - we had lunch here on two occasions
  • Interesting place. We found the Exhibition more interesting from the point of view of the information it gave as from the quality of the pictures itself
