  • Part of one of our best days in Krakow that almost wasn’t! We nearly left after visiting the first room thinking that was all because the entrance fee was so reasonable. We turned the narrow corner and discovered multiple nooks and crannies all expertly curated that took us on a two hour journey. A must see! Watch for times and lines. Capacity is limited.
  • It said at the entrance that the tickets for that day were sold out, but as we went in to ask they happened to have 7 tickets left for the time slot. The museum was amazing, the decor and music in each room made you feel as if you were in that period, feeling how the polish and Jewish people felt. This was an educational experience and I would thoroughly recommend it!
  • Go early as there seems to be a limited number of tickets. Monday's are free to go round. It is very informative & you'll need at least 2 hours to see & read everything. Well worth a visit.
  • A must see. I checked online to book tickets but it said everything was booked. The next day I went to the factory and someone was handing out tickets. So I was able to visit for free. Not a guided tour but I was happy to have seen it
  • Disappointing because there is very little about Schindler and the factory. The exhibition focuses on the German invasion. Don't book a tour with an English guide. The group is too big and the space is too small. You can't see or hear anything. We left the group after 30 minutes and managed to see much more this way. This is not a museum for kids. They just get bored and make it impossible for others to enjoy the experience.
