Housed in the former administrative building of Oskar Schindler factory, Emalia, is a museum that tells the story of Schindler and the Jewish prisoners of Plaszow who were the inspiration for Steven Spielberg's hit movie, "Schindler's List."
All reviews oskar schindler nazi occupation actual factory schindler's factory excellent museum war years informative museum second world war schindler's list worth a visit jewish population two hours couple of hours guided tour visiting krakow the main square old town
We tried to visit the museum on the first day of our trip, unfortunately by 2pm it had sold out so we went back on the last day of our trip and luckily got in, if you are pushed for time make sure you book!...More
This museum tells the story of Krakow during the second world war, and not the story of Oscar Schindler. If your are okay with that, you should really take a guided tour through the museum and learn a lot about Krakow and Polens war history...More
We visited the museum at the end of the day. People are waiting outside. We can get in with the KrakowCard without delay. Impressive museum. Very crowded with groups. Therefor difficult to see the excibition.
Very informative and moving museum. Whilst the factory is no longer there it still helps you to see what was happening at the time and what happened to the polish Jews . Tour guide was excellent explaining as he went through. We even came home...More

Really fascinating history of Krakow in WW2. I'd seen Schindler's List and studied WW2 at GCSE so thought I knew about the treatment of the Jews by the Nazis but this museum proved to me I didn't know the half of it. Really clever techniques...More

I booked my tickets online before I went and the email confirmation clearly stated that I had to pick up my tickets BEFORE going to the museum at the tourist office. I went to the one in the old Jewish Quarter as it was closest to my hotel and within a 15 minute walk to the museum. If you have any doubt, have the concierge at your hotel call the museum to check. I was glad I did because I was able to go to the front of the line as I had my tickets in my hand. Those that had vouchers took for ever to get inside.
We are going to Kracow this week and want to visit Oskar Schindlers factory/museum. Firstly, is it relatively easy ( and safe) to walk to, if so, which is the easiest and quickest route? Secondly, does it cost to go in and do I need to book in advance? Grateful for your advice and tips please.

It is easy to walk to although I have gone twice and walked the first time but took the tram the second time - it is quite a long walk if you are coming from rynek glowny for example. I did not book ahead although this is very easy to do - you just prebook the tickets and then upon arrival

Does anyone know if the Oskar Schindler Factory is now open.

Hi, just got back from Krakow on Tuesday. Oskar Schindler's factory is not open to the public as yet, but September 2009 is the date which is advertised on a poster outside the factory. We walked down to see the factory from the outside, you can just manage to peek through the gates to see the courtyard and buildings which are behind the gates. Hope this info helps.
Oskar Schindler's Factory:How long does it take to visit? (8 Replies)
Hello again! Still due to my tight schedule in Krakow, I would need to ask another question, this time concerning the museum in the Schindler's Factory. Could anyone telle me how long you must allow for a fair visit of the museum? Is audioguide available? Thanks a lot!

There is no audioguide, and I would allow at least 2 hours to do the museum justice. You can get a guided tour their, but this really isn't necessary or very good.
