The Galicia Jewish Museum is a unique institution that was created to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust, to celebrate the richness of Jewish history and culture, and to take part in the revival of Jewish life in present-day Poland.
Through exhibitions, cultural events, and an educational outreach and community programme, the Museum presents Jewish history from a new perspective, challenging the stereotypes and misconceptions typically associated with the Jewish past in Poland, educating both Poles and Jews about their own histories whilst encouraging them to think about the future.
In addition to its educational tasks, the Galicia Jewish Museum meets a range of specific community- and heritage-based needs. Through a rich and diverse exhibition programme, the Museum offers a platform for contact with Judaism, Jewish culture, history, and even contemporary art, providing an engaging, welcoming environment for people from all backgrounds and age groups within the context of Kraków. The exhibition programmes target visitors from the local Jewish community as well as their non-Jewish neighbours, Jewish tourists visiting the place of death and/or country of their ancestors, and non-Jewish tourists arriving every year to Poland.
The work of the Galicia Jewish Museum is possible only thanks to the trust and support of many individual donors and foundations.
Your donation today will help ensure a future for the Museum and an ongoing contribution to the revival of Jewish culture in Poland, as well as the continued presence of our vital institution for visitors from around the world as well as for the local community. Only together we can build an open and tolerant society, aware of its past, and actively shaping its Polish-Jewish future.
The Galicia Jewish Museum is functioning thanks to the trust and support of numerous individuals and instituions. In 2017 the Museum received over 70 important grants and donations from foundations, individuals, as well as public and private organizations.
