Welcome to Galicia Jewish Museum

Galicia Jewish Museum

Situated in the heart of Kazimierz, the Jewish Quarter of Krakow, the Galicia Jewish Museum houses a permanent photographic exhibition, "Traces of Memory". The exhibition documents the history of the Jewish people in the villages and towns of Poland. This poignant museum also hosts a range of special events, lectures and Jewish music concerts and has a well-stocked bookshop. The Galicia Jewish Museum is often overlooked as a tourist attraction in Krakow, but is a worthwhile sight for people from all walks of life. Budget at least three hours to fully absorb the experience.

Information & Facts

Ul. Dajwor 18
15 PLN (adults) and 8 PLN (concessions)
The national language is Polish. English is widely understood in tourist areas.

The official currency is Zloty (PLN), divided into 100 groszy. Poland is essentially a 'cash country', and it is difficult to negotiate credit cards and travellers cheques in the cities, and well nigh impossible in rural areas. American Express, Diners Club, Visa and MasterCard are, however, accepted in places frequented by tourists. ATMs are also beginning to proliferate in Polish cities, where the sign 'Bankomat' indicates them. Money (preferably US$ or Euros) can be exchanged in the cities and larger towns at banks, hotels or bureaux called 'kantors', which offer the best rates. Banks are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and some are open on Saturday till 1pm.

Opening Times
Daily from 9am to 7pm in the summer, and from 9.30am to 5.30pm in the winter. Closed on Yom Kippur
