Reasons for trip

We got a taxi from our hotel to the museum which is situated by the Jewish Quarter in Krakow. It is wise to prebook your visit and tickets can be purchased from the information centre in the main square. We went on a Monday and the tickets are free but is is advisable to get them prior to your visit as they are very popular. The museum is first class and one of the best ones I have ever visited. It gives a detailed insight into pre war and war-time Krakow. There are poignant photos and letters from children living in the ghetto, and a model of the ghetto complete with houses and streets. You really get a feeling of what life was like living in the ghetto during the war, and it was poignant, thought provoking and obviously sad. It is really educational and I learnt a lot about the history of Krakow and now understand more about the German occupation and how it affected the Polish people. It explains how Oscar Schindler saved the lives of thousands of Jews.

It is quite a large museum and so you need to set aside a couple of hours to truly see everything. There are toilets and a cafe on the ground floor and a cloakroom. It is set over three floors but there are lifts available. If you are using taxis then there is a taxi rank outside. You can also use the tram system but there is no tram station right outside the museum but the information centre can give you details of the nearest tram stop. However, the taxis in Krakow are so inexpensive that we found it easier to use these.
