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 arrived mid afternoon and were informed that there was only one ticket left for sale so it is best to pre book or arrive early. I went around on my own without a tour, which gave me time to read all of the information...More
A very interesting museum
Lots of material about the German Occupation of Krakow
Not so much about Schindler himself
Ticket system chaotic
If you find tours have sold out then go to the Eagle Pharmacy museum and buy the three museum ticket to the Memorial...More
For those that have little knowledge of how the Germans invaded Poland this is a worthwhile trip but has very little to do with who schlinder was and what he did for the Jews. If you have knowledge of WWI & WW2 it's not really...More
This potentially very interesting visit poked either Dicover Craclov a was spoilt by a number of factors. Our group was over large (30) and the tour wad rushed not giving time to look at the exhibits in detail. The guide herself did not speak English...More

We were dropped off here after our trip to Auschwitz. However, despite arriving just after 3pm there were no tickets left for that day. You can buy online though this closes 3 days before so I would recommend sorting this out before you go. However,...More
We came upon a flea market, walked through the Jewish walled cementary (emotional experience) and just took in the sights as we strolled along the streets. At times, it was emotional as we spoke of the horrors that had happened in this neighbourhood. We must...More

Then I found out that the factory is no factory anymore, but a second world war museum. The...More
Afraid I was a tad disappointed with visit.
Although in the lobby there are items relating to the films there really isn’t a great deal inside on the temporary exhibition or the main tour.

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.
