What To Expect

Make your own way to central Krakow and begin your tour in front of Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum, where your guide is waiting for you. Before heading inside, hear a brief introduction about Oskar Schindler, the inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s award-winning film, 'Schindler’s List.'

Follow your guide into the museum, passing through rooms documenting the impact of World War II on Krakow. Travel back in time through photographs of cobbled streets, resistance hideaways, and prisons of the Nazi- and Soviet-occupied city. Listen in on original film and radio recordings for a sense of the overwhelming fear that gripped the country during that time.

As you continue to explore the interactive displays, learn the stories that took place inside the factory. Hear how Schindler's Jewish employees manufactured pots, pans, tins and other enamelware for the German army, and how this vital war effort protected them from transportation to the concentration camps. See some of the products made here, view Schindler’s office, and hear the fates of some of the 1,200 Schindlerjuden—Schindler’s Jews—who worked in the factory.

Your tour concludes outside of the museum, where you can continue exploring Krakow independently.

An important lesson never to let evil sin.
Ellinor_S, Apr 2024
The guide was very compassionate and engaging. The overcrowded exhibition was a surprise though. A very important part of history and a deeper insight to the polish peoples suffering during the invasion. The tour felt a bit rushed, probably because there were so many eager visitors. Left with many thougts.

Disappointed
Elaine_D, Apr 2024
We had a great time even though we were late through no fault of our own and with no help from our tour guide the kind gentleman on the door let us through so we walked around ourselves to see the fabulous museum 😀
Straightforward ticket pick up
Jack_L, Apr 2024
Once we got there, the person who had our tickets was waiting for us by a sign post so was easy to find and it was simple as walking into the museum with our ticket and going around the museum.

Really good tour
Sana_H, Apr 2024
Really great tour. Well organised and our guide was very clear and personable. You need to go to the meeting point 15mins before your tour time to get your equipment and check in. The only downside was that the group was quite big and some of the rooms were small so it was cramped at times. However you’re able to do your own thing too if you wish to stay in a room a little longer. Overall good value for money and easy.

Lessons to be learned
Raj_T, Mar 2024
It was really interesting yet hard to see the atrocities the Jews had to endure during the Nazi occupation, hopefully history will not repeat itself.

Claire_H, Mar 2024
Fantastic tour, the guide was amazing, very informative and interesting to listen to. I could have listened to her for longer. The museum itself was interesting, but we definitely got more out of it having a guide.

Worth a visit
Catherine_D, Feb 2024
Great museum about the Poles, the Jews, what went on during the war and about Oskar Schindler and his factory. Our tour guide was very informative. The headsets ensured that we could hear everything she said without being a nuisance to other visitors to the museum. Worth a visit.
