About
Exhibition Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939–1945 is located in the former administrative building of Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory at 4 Lipowa Street. The exhibition is primarily a story about Kraków and its inhabitants, both Polish and Jewish, during World War Two. It is also a story about Nazi Germans – the occupiers who arrived here on 6 September 1939, brutally disrupting Kraków’s centuries-long history of Polish-Jewish relations. Due to high popularity of the museum, pre-booking is required.

Our guide was very good. Her English was clear and she was very thoughtful in her speech on the owner and the sad history of the Jews and Poles.

A lot of great information and interesting personal stories. Booked online and seemed to have to join a tour but on arrival, others appeared to be going around on their own. As I like to read EVERYTHING in a museum, the pace of the tour and the huge amount of people meant this was impossible. I tried to stay with the group but it became ever more frustrating and I took it at my own pace. The group was much too large to see anything she was showing or talking about. This museum visit concluded our self-guided walking tour of the ghetto. A moving day.

What a fascinating and well-curated museum. So much more than just a museum abut Oskar Schindler (which is sort of what we thought it'd be). There's a tremendous amount of information and photos that document and show Krakow's role in WWII. Easy to walk through the way it's laid out (and you can't easily miss stuff, unlike in some museums where it's so easy to get "lost" and not see everything), and only minor annoyance is getting stuck behind a big group b/c the halls are too narrow to easily scoot around groups of people.

Parking is just on the street (and free, at least in November), so probably in high season it's annoying, but in low season we got a spot pretty much right out front. We also didn't get tickets in advance, but again, I think going in low season means you don't really have to do stuff in advance.

Definitely worth the time (and small entry fee) if you're at all interested in Krakow's WWII history, and a good combo w/ visiting Auschwitz (though on separate days, I advise, as Auschwitz needs a lot of time).

This isn't just a tour of the factory of Oskar Schindler - it is a history of Krakow throughout the second world war era. Very well presented and also the guide was very knowledgable and interesting. Worth a visit without a doubt

I would recommend anyone to visit this museum and to visit Pleszow camp - but watch the movie Schindlers List first as it will give you a much greater understanding of the importance and cultural significance of the site.
Easy walking distance from the town centre and so this could be a interesting alternative to the obvious attraction (Auschwitz) if combined with a walk around the ghetto area and the Pleszov camp.
Very well laid out and interesting museum, focussing on the war history of Krakow and its people, inside the original factory.
Definitely worth a visit

We've all read the history books and see Schindler's List. But the tour of Oscar Schindler's original factory is a reminder to us all that the story of what happened here, can never be forgotten.
Yes there are continual queues, and yes - there are a lot of people and guided tours milling around, but the artefacts are very interesting and very well displayed. We would recommend this to adults especially, but perhaps for younger children then I doubt they'd enjoy it. Note that for those with a sensitive disposition, then some of the images displayed are harrowing to say the least. Unimaginable that this happened 80 years ago, the evil that men do - eh?

We ordered an english speaking tour guide. We were two persons and the total group was about 15 persons. Got speakers so we could listen to the guide loud and clear. A must see when in Krakow

This is a very good museum giving the history of Krakow and is definitely worth a visit. However is was very busy on our visit of 28th October morning and in one of the final rooms we visited we encountered an extremely rude and obnoxious curator. Unfortunately he had positioned his chair in front of one of the exhibits so you could not see it. If you were anywhere near him he barked 'Covid' at you to get away and if you ask him kindly to move so you can see the exhibit he refuses completely and stands in front of the exhibit so you cannot read it. The irony of this is that he does this whilst wearing his mask beneath his nose! Fortunately I have broad shoulders and saw the amusing side of this but in a world where we should be setting an example and teaching the next generation how to behave to avoid atrocities like this ever happening again, if you can be anything......be kind.

It was way too crowded. Firstly to see properly the exhibition. Spaces were cramped and there were too many people inside. You couldn’t read anything at tournees ease because there was a line of people waiting to do the same. You gad to work your way through all these your guided parties and couldn’t see the spaces they were occupying at that moment.
What was most disappointing though, was that you didn’t really see anything of the original factory. Nothing to give you a real impression of what it must have been. It was just a general exhibition.

If you are looking for an Oskar Schindler shrine, than you will be disappointed, If you are looking to educate yourself on the plight of the Polish Jews than this is a must see.
I decided to get a guided tour. My guide was Kamil Rozanski. He spoke English very well and was very knowledgeable on the subject. The guided tour was supposed to last 1.5hrs but out tour was more like 1hr and 50 min which was good, and Kamil was always willing to answer questions.
As good as Kamil was I feel it would be more enjoyable an experience to tour the museum on your own for the sole reason that there is so much to see and read, I feel I could have easily spent 4 hours or more taking it all in
All in all I highly recommend a visit to this museum if you are in Krakow.
