  • The museum not only outlines the story of Oskar Schindler, but also in excellent interactive displays tells the story of Krakow during the war years. Very informative bringing history to life.

  • Interesting place to visit if you're in the area Well put together and very informative The only downside for me was that there were a lot of bigger tour groups that were blocking some of the exhibits but other than that it was a good experience I wrote a detailed guide on the best things to see and do in Krakow if you want more ideas on how to plan your trip - link on my photo
  • Interesting places to visit. A lot of history in one place. Wery well organized and our tour guide give us a lot of information about that country.
  • More about life BEFORE the war in 1939..life during & after. Not much about Schindler. Still, a cool history spot. Lots of pics.
  • Sobering experience and great way to learn about what WWII was like in Krakow. It took us 2 to 3 hours to go through the museum. It can get a bit crammed but it is definitely worth a visit.
  • Incredible museum. One of the best I've ever been in. You can easily spend hours here.
