By far one of the best Holocaust museums. A must see in Krakow. The museum seeks to present the history of the Holocaust through all the senses and thus, makes very a very interesting and moving experience.

Opened in 2009, the Schindler museum is as modern, as you can expect for a brand new museum. The museum focusses on experience, with loads of visual material it really gives a living portrait of Poland during the second world war. The only downside is that it`s many stairs make it not as wheelchair friendly as one can expect.

Was expecting something more from the Schindler's musuem. Was told that quite a bit of technology was incorporated when buidling the musuem. However, the walk around the musuem felt really "dry".
