In the home of the Kornreich family of Oświęcim, the Jewish Museum commemorates and educates about the Jewish history of Oświęcim. Through the core exhibition, Oshpitzin, visitors can explore the lives of the Jews of Oświęcim through photographs, artifacts, and survivor testimony.

In the exhibition, photographs of individuals and families, documents and artifacts from local Jewish organizations and businesses, and the Judaica excavated in 2004 from beneath the site of the Oświęcim Great Synagogue bring to life the vital Jewish town that Oświęcim once was.
