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.

  • Mainly, this museum traces life in Krakow under the occupation. One room is devoted to Oskar Schindler, he comes to his office. The Museum is beautiful.
