My husband and I recently visited this museum. It is very interesting, arranged over 5 floors. There is a lot of information and very handy cards which relate to each individual room, available in many different languages.

We thought it was just one or two floors but it goes on and on. If there’s one thing Krakow knows how to do it’s museums. Absolutely fantastic. Well worth the visit. Very interesting.

You could easily miss this quiet and unassuming little museum in the heart of the bustle of the Old Town with its tourists and fine buildings; but you shouldn’t. I have no interest in pharmacy and yet I found this museum, particularly the first few...More

Exhibits are well-done with explanations in English. Free tickets on Monday, and still not too crowded. About 45 minutes in this small museum, right at Ghetto Heroes Square, is time well-spent.

No need to book in advance, but check opening times on the day you want to go. Also it's a fair way to Schindler museum from the Old Town centre - not walking distance.
