Galicia Jewish Museum

ul. Dajwór 18



The museum saves from oblivion traces of the Jewish past in what used to be Galicia, and today lies in south-eastern Poland and western Ukraine.

The museum is located in Kraków’s district of Kazimierz, in the heart of the former Jewish district of the city, and it portrays the history and culture of Galician Jews, and commemorates the victims of the Holocaust. There are two permanent presentations of photographs: the exhibition by Chris Schwarz documents the saved remnants of the Jewish heritage of Polish Galicia and presents the places of the Shoah and post-war attempts at retaining the memory of Jewish Heritage in Poland. In turn, the exhibition An Unfinished Memory. Jewish Heritage and the Holocaust in Eastern Galicia expands the insight into Jewish heritage to the entire historical Galicia, including its eastern expanses that today lie within the borders of Ukraine. The museum eagerly hosts temporary exhibitions and organises events that promote knowledge of the Jewish past in Poland among children, young people, and adults.

Tickets: normal PLN 15, concessions PLN 10, family PLN 30
