“High on the must see list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

The original building, now a museum, that tells the story of Krakow through World War 2 as well as telling the story that is the backdrop to Schindler's List. Be prepared for the un-softened telling of this quite shocking piece of history. An absorbing visit that is well worth the time needed to do it justice.

“Lot to read, too little of Schindler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

I think this museum has a nice way of telling the story of the Jews. There is a lot to read so if you're a reader it will take you several ours to go through the museum.
I had hope there was more about Schindler himself, or that you could see some of the old fabric, but it was all turned in to a museum.
All in all I think it was a nice museum that tells a very important story from Krakow. And the entrance fee was fair.

“Interesting but not about Schindler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

A very interesting site about
Poland during the war. Repetitive if you have seen the Warsaw Uprising Museum.

“Must see”

The museum is a must. To see the place where Schindler helped all those Jews escape and the story behind it..
