Trip Planner: Europe / Poland / Southern Poland / Lesser Poland Province / Oswiecim / Jewish Museum and Synagogue
Founded to revitalize Jewish culture in the town of Auschwitz, Jewish Museum and Synagogue serves as both a place of worship and a museum. Part of the museum is an educational facility that aims to educate the public about the Holocaust. Take a tour of the synagogue and the museum to learn about the culture and daily rituals of the Jewish community that once made up the majority of the population of the town that later became infamous as a concentration camp. You'll also see the Kluger family house and any temporary exhibits. A tour request form online allows you to book in advance. To plan Oswiecim vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Very interesting museum and a lovely tour done by a German Social Volunteer. English, German and Polish tours possible. Visit to the Old Synagogue is also nice and Jewish groups are able to hold a prayer with the old Thora. Beautiful, even though equipped with replicas. Very well worth a visit but don't expect much information on World War II. It's about Jewish life in the city.
An amazing place to learn the history of the town. I had such a great time working with the guides and exploring the objects. Everyone is so knowledgable about the topic, and super sweet! A must-needed supplement for those going to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum.
