Galicia Jewish Museum (Żydowskie Muzeum Galicja)

Galicia Jewish Museum (Żydowskie Muzeum Galicja)

The Galicia Jewish Museum exists to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and celebrate the Jewish culture of Polish Galicia, presenting Jewish history from a new perspective. An innovative and unique institution located in Kazimierz, the Jewish district of Kraków, Poland, the Museum is a registered charity in Poland. The objectives of the Museum are to challenge the stereotypes and misconceptions typically associated with the Jewish past in Poland and to educate both Poles and Jews about their own histories, whilst encouraging them to think about the future.

Home to the internationally acclaimed permanent photographic exhibitions, Traces of Memory and An Unfinished Memory, the Museum also shows an exciting range of temporary exhibitions, both curated in-house and sourced from around the world. The Museum’s Cultural and Education Programme is one of the most extensive in Poland, providing a range of services for both individual and group visitors, and the Media Resource Centre houses a growing archive of films on Jewish and Holocaust-related subjects. As well as engaging in primary research and publishing, the Museum also operates one of the largest Jewish bookshops in Poland, and the Museum café serves a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks, and offers a range of catering options for visiting groups.

Used as a mill before the war, today the renovated Museum building has a light, contemporary, post-industrial feel – utilising glass, metal and dark woods – whilst still retaining many of the building’s original elements and structure. The flexible space is ideal for housing a range of exhibitions and hosting all types of cultural and social events, and the Museum is a popular venue for local artists, performers, and musicians.
