Oskar Schindler's Factory, Krakow

(3.9/5 based on 9,500+ reviews on the web)
Get an up-close look at the city during the Nazi occupation at Oskar Schindler's Factory. The permanent exhibit focuses on the period between 1939 and 1945. Located in a former administrative building of Oskar Schindler's enamel factory, the museum narrates the history of a city destroyed and rebuilt over the course of several foreign occupations and two world wars. Explore the main space, which features Schindler's office, preserved just as he left it more than seven decades ago, as well as the "Survivors' Ark," made of enamel pots similar to those the workers crafted during the war. Don't miss the museum's recreated ghetto apartment to get a sense of the wartime experiences of the city's Jewish inhabitants.

  • This is a good, informative museum. I was worried it would only focus on the film but thankfully that wasn't the case at all - it gives a great overview of life in Krakow during the German occupation....  more »
