Galicia Jewish Museum (Żydowskie Muzeum Galicja)

With the name referring to the ethnically diverse northernmost province of the Austrian Habsburg Empire, which existed from 1772-1918 and extended fr om Kraków to Ternopil, this popular museum keeps the memory of Jewish life in southern Poland and western Ukraine alive via hundreds of photographs documenting former Jewish sites in Galicia today. The images of forgotten cemeteries, derelict synagogues and death camps prove haunting and sober viewing, and deserve to be an essential part of any Kazimierz tour. The converted warehouse also houses small temporary exhibits, a large bookstore selling a range of titles of Jewish interest and a cafe. The adjacent garden features a huge mural, and if you can get way into the back of that courtyard, you’ll find further murals of Irena Sendler (Righteous Among the Nations) and Marek Edelman (leader of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising).

This museum is not only tiny but well-translated into English so I can't imagine why you would ever want a guided tour of it. Thanks for the info though.
