Once the capital of Poland, Krakow may be best known for its castle and charming Old Town. But those who want a deeper introduction to Polish history can head to the city’s plethora of interesting, informative museums. Here are a few top picks.

Oskar Schindler's Factory
A former enamel factory, Oskar Schindler's Factory today is home to a permanent exhibition telling the story of the Nazi occupation of Krakow, in addition to a number of rotating temporary exhibitions.
How to Visit: Join a small-group walking or Segway tour of Krakow's Jewish quarter, or book a private tour for a more in-depth experience.

Ghetto Eagle Pharmacy Museum
Located within the boundaries of the former Jewish ghetto, the Eagle Pharmacy Museum commemorates both the Holocaust and the memory of pharmacy owner Tadeusz Pankiewicz, who operated his business during the Nazi occupation.
How to Visit: Book a one- or two-day hop-on, hop-off sightseeing bus tour and make this museum one of your stops, or join a tour focusing on Krakow's Jewish district, Kazimierz.

Stained Glass Museum
Visit this century-old stained-glass workshop to watch masters at work and learn the process behind the creation of large-scale stained glass installations.
How to Visit: Admission is only possible as part of a tour, offered hourly in English. 

Historical Museum of Krakow
Dedicated to telling the history of Krakow, the Historical Museum is spread across 16 branches and includes Oskar Schindler’s Factory, the Ghetto Eagle Pharmacy Museum, the Town Hall Tower, the Old Synagogue, and the Rynek Underground.
How to Visit: Check out a handful of branches by joining a small-group walking or mini-bus tour of the city.

National Museum Krakow
Founded in the late 19th century, the National Museum Krakow, or MNK, is the primary branch of Poland's National Museum and is home to nearly 800,000 pieces of art, including a large collection of Polish works.
How to Visit: Make the museum a stop on a one- or two-day hop-on, hop-off sightseeing bus tour.
