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

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

One more work explaining the atrocities is the WWII, you will find little of the Schlinder story, since this place is mostly to review the occupation of Krakow.

Getting to Schindlers factory (7 Replies)
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!
September 10, 2015|
Response fromPhil C|
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.
