  • Not being Jewish, the interior and what goes on within a synagogue was always a mystery. We went into this building with a bit of trepidation especially as a large party of Jews were also going...

  • I watched it only from outside. It is not a very interesting building as it is lower than the street level - it has the historical reason. There is an entrance fee and there is an excepted clothing...

  • Was hoping to see a synagogue in the Jewish quarter, but this "Synagogue" is now a museum. One large room with white walls in what used to be the main hall of the temple. Most of the artifacts and descriptions were about aspects of the Jewish faith, wasn't a lot of information about the history of the people who worshiped there. Worth seeing if you have a special interest the Jewish religion and don't have much knowledge about it.
  • Interesting place to gather some information about the Jewish culture and traditions. Display of ritual and religious object with a thorough explanation of the high times in the calendar which require special liturgies. Interesting explanation of the lives of important Rabbis and how the Kraków Jewish community came to grow. The architecture of the Synagogue is very elegant dating back to the Renaissance
  • Well-preserved place with relics from Jewish culture. You can also learn about jewish culture from info-tables. Maybe a bit overwhelming and busy but worth visiting.
  • Very nice museum with a great audio tour for lots of information about the Jewish religion and history of the place. Audio tour takes about an hour and a half.
  • Very informative bout way of living especially the Jewish way of life can’t understand why they were hated so much by Hitler n his cronies the folk we met were lovely humble n thankful perhaps living in a troubled country like Ireland where catholic’s n Protestants kill n maim just because they r someone who the other doesn’t agree
