A heartwarming testament to humankind, in World War II Apteka pod Orłem. Oddział Muzeum Historycznego Miasta Krakowa housed the only pharmacy  n Krakow's Jewish ghetto. Now a museum, this site narrates the story of the people who worked there and often risked their lives to help the ghetto population suffering under Nazi occupation. Spread out over five small rooms, the exhibits include the Polish owner's eyewitness account of the atrocities committed against the city's Jews. Photos, videos, and written documents make up the bulk of the exhibit. To visit Apteka pod Orłem.

  • This is a very small museum, and there really isn't that much to see here, although it does give some insight and has historical significance.

  • First go to "Kassa" (ticket office) where you get your tickets and also buy some souvenirs. Then there is another door where the permanent exhibition is displayed. Relatively small but it's interesting for the people who like history and medicine. It's interactive so feel free to open the drawers. Pro tip: On Thursdays, the entrance is free of charge but you should book it beforehand
  • Great museum. I also recommend the Pharmacy Museum in Old Town
