Tadeusz Pankiewicz, a Polish Roman Catholic pharmacist, used to operate out of this pharmacy during the Nazi occupation of Poland. He became known as one of the Righteous Among The Nations by Yad Vashem for his role in rescuing innumerable Jews during the Holocaust. His establishment has now been turned into a multi-media museum. The building looks exactly as it did during the time of Nazi occupation. It explores life in the ghetto, the various methods by which people survived, and the post-war history of Jews in Krakow. The museum also explores the activities of the pharmacist himself, especially his account of the Holocaust as he saw it. It's an interactive museum and you can actually handle the artifacts and photographs related to those times. Even though it's a small museum people usually end up staying for more than one hour.

Muzeum Historycznego Miasta Krakowa, Krakow Reviews - Write a Review

  • Moment of emotion in this place who was run by a polish (non jude) pharmacist who refused to leave the Krakow jewish ghetto during the nazi period. Instead, he helped people to live / hide during this terrific period of our European history.

  • A small but nice museum. Only a few rooms, however lots of interactive displays and information. Really only need 30 minutes for this one, but I'd recommend purchasing a joint ticket with Schindler's factory - makes it more worthwhile.

  • It only takes about 20 minutes to go through this small Museum but it's a very interesting profile of the good a few people did during World War II.

  • Must visit when in Kraków. Very interesting but sad educational historical place.

  • Great experience. Great it had student discount. You can learn a lot and see how a old time pharmacy looks like. Is small so quick to see.
