“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.

Disliked the surly man who served coffee in the film cafe area. But exhibition outshines him by miles, go and invets your time, look back at history, reflect on what was

“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.
