What to Expect
This Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum tour picks you up from your hotel early in the morning. Hop aboard a comfortable minivan limited to eight people. On board, you can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi and watch a Holocaust documentary, if it’s available at the time.
Once you arrive at the museum, follow a guide around both Auschwitz I and Birkenau (Auschwitz II) as you see the former roads, watchtowers, railway ramps, fences, crematoriums, and gas chambers. Your guide makes sure to tell you stories as you go through the exhibits and memorials, too.
After your Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum tour, get back into your minivan for the ride to Krakow, and get dropped back at your hotel upon arrival.
