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.

Guide was very informative but the tour was too rushed. Not enough time was allowed to look at and read the exhibits. Toilets were not good enough. Only 3 for so many people and they were not clean and hand driers out of order and no paper towels left. Disgraceful. But the museum was very good.

Lots of interesting information from a highly knowledgeable guide but would have liked to spend a little longer looking at exhibits. A beautifully set out museum with lots of interactive elements. Would revisit at a slower place having been round once.

Very interesting. Much more than Schindler’s history. Very nice guide. She was very didactic. The only improvement is that this company had no headphones like the others. So you have to stay very near the guide to understand. I highly recommend this tour.
