Well worth a visit.

The Factory Museum tasks on a modern approach to such an horrific time for Poland. It depicts life in Krakow during the war with 'no holds barred'. Unlike the visits to the camps... read more

We were really looking forward to this visit, but not what I expected. Very busy with group tours and struggled to move on between the exhibits. Most of it was regarding to the prior breakout of the war and what happened to the people living in the city at that time and during the war. It was interesting but lots... More

I am into this sort of thing but this museum was just a little dull. Didn't have much about Schindler's factory either.

The Factory Museum tasks on a modern approach to such an horrific time for Poland. It depicts life in Krakow during the war with 'no holds barred'. Unlike the visits to the camps the museum fills in the gaps and reveals more images and explains the work carried out by Schindler and the reasoning behind the factory. Well worth the... More

A very interesting place and a definite must see when in Krákow. I feel like the nurse I'm went on a little too long, but how else are you meant to fit that much history into one space hey? Beyond interesting and heart warming. Sad but knowledgable. I will remember my visit to the factory museum.

This is a must see when you are in Krakow. Not just because Spielberg's mobiel but especially because it contains a great exhibition about Krakau during the second World war and about the jewish population which was struck so hard by the Nazi regime. Very well presented with lots of authentic material!

This is not a factory its an interactive museum set on the site near where the factory used to be. Its very visual, with sounds, videos, artifacts and information presented in an interesting and absorbing way. I spent so long there that the staff had to kick me out as they were closing. They have obviously spent some money on... More

We found many ways of reaching the factory. It seems odd but it is in the middle of an industrial estate, odd for a museum but ideal for a factory Very interesting, very informative Found the videos, of the actual peoples experiences, very informative, interesting and moving
