  • This is a small one room museum which is about 10 mins walk north west from the old town. We went on a Tuesday when it is free to enter. Interesting info on the occupation of Krakow by the communists ...  more »

  • This is not one of those places where you need to go. However, it is worth it. This is the place I took care to our history, which unfortunately during WORLD WAR II she was cruel. This is not a Museum for the overly sensitive people, because its history is cruel. For lovers of history especially. For those who consider totalitarian systems for something cool-place compulsory, as the Museum in Auschwitz.

  • Schindler's Factory, GHETTO and the most secret place to visit is the former GESTAPO HEADQUARTERS at 2Pomorska Street. The authentic cells and Interrogation corner with oryginal artefacts went to time of the General Government 1939 -1945. Do not miss opportunity to visit that museum. OSKAR SCHINDLER was jailed there...
  • Must see. Surprisingly, not many tourists visit it. The actual Gestapo cells are a reminder how ugly wars were/are.
  • Very small but well put together. English captions and English speaking staff along with modern video and sound installations help immersion. Don't miss the cells in the basement with original graffiti from the Gestapo period.
  • I think everyone must visit this museum.
  • Only small but another reminder of Poland's suffering.
