“One of the sites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We went on foot to find the Factory and found it a bit difficult to find, but of course we should have known, its on a industrial site.
The museum is very good but also very harrowing stories.Would definitely recommend.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Rounded off the trip to Krakow with a visit to the OS Factory. Was well worth a visit, but have been to better museums in my time.

Was hoping to see more of the factory as it was, but in reality they have just used the building as a shell to display artefacts/displays on the wider issue of the time.

Nice to see Oskar's office preserved though.

Was worth a visit, probably worth going on one of the tour bus trips, we went "native" and used local public transport, but the walk to the tram from the museum is certainly through what can only be described as a "tasty area" and certainly didn't feel particularly safe.

Recommended, but the National Polish Army museum was better.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

This has got to be the most interesting museum I've been too . In not a great fan of museums and find it difficult to absorbe all the information , but this was a different experience . There is a lot of film footage to be seen including a small cinema room . As you walk round you get a real sence of being there .

“Pleased we visited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

It's all been said already really,
Excellent few hours spent walking through the factory museum, very well organised with numerous interactive displays and presentations.
Pleased we visited, would recommend to all ages and well worth watching films or reading about this courageous man before you arrive.
