This only costs about £3.00 (free entry on a Monday) fantastic displays, audio visual, can get up close to the displays, very moving display using a replica of the Ghetto wall - was so fascinated by the place, I want to go back and spend more time in certain areas

the schindler factory has exhibits about krakow during the nazi occupation, it wasn't really about schindler or the people who worked there, so it seemed to have a bit of an identity crisis! i liked the fact that they have managed to preserve what is historically an important building, but as a museum, i thought it could be better. there was a tape that was played in a room but it wasn't edited very well and sometimes the stories seemed confusing, or didn't follow well. there were alot of rude people in the room standing up half way and leaving, causing quite a lot of disruption. when we were there trying to get tickets, someone else was booking many tickets for a group and we were standing waiting for more than 10-15 minutes while other staff just waited behind the counter and seemed to suggest only one person could take the ticket orders - a bit of a ridiculous situation. i am not sure many would make the effort to see a museum about krakow during the war if the name 'schindler' wasn't attached to it. it's a shame as the museum had potential to be more. the walk to the museum is a bit weird as you pass through some not very pleasant streets. however, it's near the ghetto heroes square - a commemorative piece of chairs on a square which symbolises the furniture and belongings thrown out of people's flats when the area was evacuated and they were moved from the ghetto to concentration camps. this is well worth a visit.

This place is a bit out of the way right in the middle of a run down industrial area but worth a visit. It is exclusivly a museum on the experience of the people of Krakow in the war and is not anything to do with the factory in the film so the name is a bit misleading. Its not as good as the Museum of the Jewish Experience in WW2 in say Berlin but worth a visit
