Most of us have seen Schindler's list but not many of us realise, me included, that there were so many brave amazing people that put their own lives on the line to help others. Allow time to visit the Pharmacy under the Eagle very close by. You can buy a saver ticket that includes both of these and the Jewish... More

Extremely well structured museum providing a real insight into the events leading up to the occupation and the impact to the local people as the war developed. Nice interactive exhibits and very well set up and presented.

A must visit for all ages. We walked from our hotel on a Sunday morning. The information is all in English and you cannot explain the emotions that run through you as you read more and more with superb pictures to supplement your imagination.

This museum does not deal just with the Schindler story, it covers the events in Krakow from 1939 to 1945. It is absolutely brilliant in every respect!! It absorbs you in the events of the time and you should allow about 3 hours to take it all on board. It is a harrowing story but the museum is an essential... More

In my opinion, I thought the museum focussed more on the 'dramas' of the WW2 for the Polish population and should of focussed more on Oskar Schlinder's efforts to save as many Jews as he managed too. The museum was well set out and easy to follow. It was well constructed and linked together through the periods of WW2. Definitely,... More

It is interesting to have seen the factory and the location (in an industrial area). They have done a good job to turn this into a museum relating to Jews & WWII. There is an entrance fee, but we used the "Visit Krakow" card and did not have to pay. Outside on the wall is some information in memory of... More
