Galicia Jewish Museum, Krakow
(3.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.
