    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    Choose your desired tour start time and travel independently to Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum in central Krakow. Meet your guide outside and hear how the museum is housed in the very factory where the Nazi industrialist Oskar Schindler employed Jewish workers during WWII. Before starting, get an illuminating introduction to Schindler, learning how Steven Spielberg brought his story to the world’s attention in his 1993 Oscar-winning movie, Schindler’s List. Then, head inside for your in-depth tour. Made up of interactive and photographic displays, the museum concentrates not only on Schindler’s and his employees’ work, but also on Krakow’s suffering during the run-up to war and beyond. As you explore, your guide will provide fascinating commentary, recounting poignant tales that will deepen your understanding of what happened here and Krakow’s history. Learn Schindler’s story and how his Jewish employees manufactured pots, pans, tins and other enamelware for the German army: a vital war effort that protected them from near-certain transportation to the concentration camps. See some of the products made here, view Schindler’s office, and hear the fates of some of the 1,200 Schindlerjuden — Schindler’s Jews — who worked in the factory. Follow your guide around the rooms dedicated to Krakow’s suffering during the war and later 20th century. View photographs of the terrorized city; be transported into the cobbled streets, resistance hideaways and prisons of the Nazi- and Soviet-occupied city; and get a sense of the overwhelming fear that gripped the population through original documents, artifacts, and film and radio recordings. After two hours of exploring, your tour ends outside the building. Say goodbye to your guide, who will provide you with directions back to the city center or your hotel as required.

We met our tour guide in the foyer & he took us around the museum talking about each area we were in but I would say that it doesn’t give you any time to actually read all the information on the walls etc. You do not spend much time in each area

Walked from our hotel 2 miles away to the museum only to be turned away by a very abrupt woman on the main desk, as it was ‘full’ for the whole day, no exceptions. We weren’t the only ones who were being turned away, whilst we were there we saw at least a dozen other people

We visited this place on 25 February. Content of factual history and artefacts superb as was the knowledge of the guide. More about WW2 than Schindler himself. However, the tours are too big and the guide is already speaking before you get to the next section behind other

The guide was very interesting and knowledgeable, although it was very busy and the group was large and space limited so it was bot always possible to hear what he was saying. It was also not possible to view all of the museum exhibits whe on the tour with the guide.

Very little about Oskar Schindler but a lot about the history of Kraków during WWII. It’s well worth a visit and the guide we had was brilliant.
