Muzeum Historycznego Miasta Krakowa - Review
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
This museum is a fascinating place. It is set up like the old apothecary and has many personal records from people living in the Jewish Ghetto. From photographs, to oral history recordings, to personal diaries, this place offers a detailed insight into what life was like in the ghetto. The museum admission is not too expensive, especially considering the amount of information that the museum holds. The layout is very interactive, encouraging visitors to look through drawers, answer telephobes, and flip through old newspapers.
I learned an interesting story walking into this litlle pharmacy/musuem. If you are visiting Podgórze definitly recommend
Not so impressive. I do not recommend.
Small museum in the Krakow ghetto. Feels intimate. Exhibit is in both Polish and English.
Wow it was an incredible privilrge to be here! Worth any effort
