  • This is a really interesting place to visit outlining how the staff in the pharmacy helped those in the Jewish ghetto. Full of history and heartache at the same time.  more »

  • A small but nice museum. Only a few rooms, however lots of interactive displays and information. Really only need 30 minutes for this one, but I'd recommend purchasing a joint ticket with Schindler's factory - makes it more worthwhile.
  • It only takes about 20 minutes to go through this small Museum but it's a very interesting profile of the good a few people did during World War II.
  • It's a small museum hidden in Ghetto Heroes Square with only five rooms on a single floor, but it houses interesting collection of artefacts that give insight into life during WWII in the Ghetto. There are plenty of interactive pieces: chests, cupboards, illustrative graphics and recordings. Each of them is teaching a history of the Pharmacy Under the Eagle in a lively, engaging form with the fascinating showcase of pharmaceutical artefacts on display and testimonials describing life in the Krakow Ghetto.
  • Great experience. Great it had student discount. You can learn a lot and see how a old time pharmacy looks like. Is small so quick to see.
  • Small museum dedicated to Krakow Jewish ghetto and pharmacy in it. Done in 30 minutes. Free on Mondays

Where to stay in Krakow

Krakow ranks among one of Europe's increasingly popular tourist destinations, which is reflected in the rising costs of comfortable lodgings. The best hotels are concentrated in and around the historical old town, where five-star luxury comes at a very steep price. Old town hotels place you just steps from fine shops and restaurants, as well as the city's main museums and galleries. However, if your trip involves a tight budget, avoid the central district and check out mid-range hotels and economical hostels in one of the outlying neighborhoods.
