Full description
Journey back to the dark days of World War II and learn the inspiring story of Oskar Schindler at Oskar Schindler's Factory Museum. Enter a modern museum devoted to the wartime experiences of the 5-year Nazi occupation of Poland during World War II. Located in the former enamel factory of the industrialist who famously saved the lives of over 1,000 people during the Holocaust, the site and story were brought into the limelight by Steven Spielberg's 1993 Oscar-winning movie "Schindler's List." Still on the site of the original administrative building of the factory on Lipowa Street, the museum tells the individual histories of Kraków's wartime inhabitants, the fate of the Jews and the city’s underground resistance to the Nazi occupation. See archival documents and photographs of the time, and listen to radio and film recordings that bring the story to life. Admire period artifacts and marvel at the dynamic multimedia installations in the museum.

This is a guide of what is was like to live in Krakow during the war rather than a tour of the factory. That said the tour was excellent. Our tour guide Magda was amazing. Her knowledge was fantastic. She had so much information and was so eager to share it. Highly recommend it and great value for money.

The museum is very cool if you are interested in Poland's WW2 history. Learned a lot there and the museum is well put together. Guide knew a lot, spoke clearly. The only point is that the tour went very quickly, you mainly listen and there is not really time to read information boards or look closely at certain attributes. At the end when the tour was over I wanted to walk back into the museum, but that was not allowed. Apparently that is in the small letters and you sign there for a one-time visit. In the end I had to buy a separate ticket myself to be allowed to go back inside. Also go especially in the morning, in the afternoon the other groups were very large, the halls in the museum are quite small.

Beautiful museum that shows life just before the occupation WWII and during the occupation, just like the persecution of the Jews. The rooms have been expertly decorated. Photos, posters and sometimes audiovisual images immerse you. This together with the very knowledgeable guide makes this a "Must Do" trip. Attention: the 1.5 hour tour is fast paced. At the end of the tour, it is not possible to return to the museum to view a number of items, unless with a new ticket.
