  • We visited this property on our own by taking the last two tickets available. eh already because the factory provides a limited number of entrances so book tickets a few days in advance. We expected more because in this building they did nothing but recreate a "historic" environment that is a museum with testimonies of the time. You will find photos, videos, reconstructions of the ghetto, in short a small museum in the Schindler factory. We were not particularly impressed because we thought we found the original environment with machinery of the time and maybe a reconstruction of how Oskar's employees worked, then maybe even a historical hint was all there but as it is too much! Another tip is to buy the entrance with a guided hiro.

  • We arrived on time for our booked tour, there was total chaos in foyer, very difficult to find our group, eventually where allowed in, but the guide was very stressed and did nothing to keep the group...  more »
  • A nice museum, but we had expected more information about Oskar Schindler. It was only a small part that was about him and the factory. It can be difficult to get a ticket to the museum if you have not pre-booked. We had not pre-booked and the tickets for the day was over when we got there.... But after some research and round-up we got tips that you can buy entrance tickets in another place. At the square where there are memorial chairs (Plac Bohaterów Getta) There is another small museum, Apteka pod Orlem, they sell tickets to more museums together. (Memorial tickets). Not at all expensive, 64 PLN for a family.

  • No doubt one of the best museum I have been. Oskar Schindler isn’t the entire theme about the museum but instead, they put you through a journey about Polish and Jews during WW2 and how Krakow was at that point of time. The journey that this museum aims to take you through is indeed very well planned. Instead of just exhibits after exhibits, the museum is interactive and intriguing. Especially the part where they made you walk on uneven ground to reach towards the area of bright light. It’s just too thought provoking. I highly recommend this tour for anybody especially those who takes keen interest in modern history.
  • There was a big crowd when we came. It was about 1 pm or so. The assistant on the entrance said there would be no tickets for today, so all the other people after us had to come next day to visit exhibition. We got the tickets in 20 minutes of awaiting. Inside of course you understand that it was worthy to wait. A lot of rooms of different life moments of fabric workers filled with original items. I would recommend to visit this place
  • The museum is very informative, although there is an abundance of information which I found overwhelming. I noticed that some groups had a tour guide and they pointed out the most important pieces of information, if I was to go back I would get a tour guide. A definite must for those who love history and want to know more about the Krakow's sad past.
  • Interesting museum. It's history is well known because of the film, but it goes more in depth and explores the broader history of the area in that era. A place which witnessed kindness in the middle of one of Europe's darkest hours.
  • A very very thorough tour of the story of Jews in Poland during WWII. More than I expected and the tour guide did am excellent job. Grim, but full of information, first hand accounts, details. Solemnly impressive.
