If you are curious about exploring the dilapidated district that once housed the wartime ghetto, then this small museum is a good place to start. It is located in a former chemists that belonged to the legendary Polish chemist Tadeusz Pankiewicz, since awarded the 'Righteous Among the Nations' distinction by the Israelis. Pankiewicz, a gentlemanly graduate of the Jagiellonian University, refused to leave his property when the ghetto was created. His chemists soon became a hive of resistance to Nazi policy. Today, the restored, tiny pharmacy-museum presents a powerful exhibition of wartime photographs, letters, documents and more, chronicling the terror of the Ghetto. A superb supplement to a sightseeing tour in Schindler's Factory Museum.

This is a little gold mine and very informative ( in English and Polish). If more museums were as interactive as this then history could really come alive. Highly recommend a visit

Not worth a visit on its own as everything in Polish but worth combining with the Schindler Museum which is about a 20 minute walk. From the Pharmacy cross the square and the main road, go down the side roads until you come to an industrial estate and the Museum is then a 5 minute walk or so. This is the best museum I have been in anywhere and a must for the visitor to Krakow.

This is one of the most informative exhibitions in Krakow. Well worth a visit. Photographic evidence available on computers there bring the whole experience alive. A real must.
