Overview
Connect with the lives of Krakow’s Jewish residents on a guided tour of the Oskar Schindler Factory Museum. Step inside the actual factory of the man immortalized in the film ‘Schindler’s List,' where a guide takes you through exhibits that share the struggles of daily life under Nazi occupation and stories of horror and heroism during World War II.
What to Expect

Come with us on a journey back to the times when Kraków’s Main Market Square was called Adolf Hitler Platz and the city itself was called not Kraków but Krakau. Find yourself in a kind of 3D cinema where everything is designed to make you feel, hear and even smell the history of Kraków during the Second World War.

Walk among the city’s inhabitants on the cobbled streets of wartime Kraków, feel overwhelmed by the omnipresent existence of the enemy, enter narrow passages and overpopulated apartments in the ghetto, find weapons in a resistance house, feel the horror of being imprisoned and interrogated, try to imagine your life in hiding and finally feel the bittersweet joy of being liberated by the Soviet army.

This will be, in a word, an emotional journey through lives of Kraków’s citizens under the Nazi occupation. Be with them from the beginning, through the 1,968 days of the occupation. We will tell you their stories, and also share some of the ones told to us by our parents and grandparents. We hope that, as with us, they will stay with you forever.

Goosebumps and chills guaranteed!

Visit the best historical museum in Poland with us, and forget for a time about your life here and now. Hear about the war in the country where it started. Enter Kraków as it was more than 70 years ago!

Great museum with even better tour guide!

I am so glad I booked the Schindler museum with a tour guide - we had 'Big Tom' and he was fantastic! His knowledge and passion of history paired with a great sense of humour gave us a great insight into Krakow during World War...More

Schindlers Factory

The tour was very informative, although not much about actual Schindler. More about the other things that happened in Krakow etc. Was very misled with the booking as after paying and arriving, were told that this was tickets to get into the place and not...More

Our guide was very knowledgeable. People who sign up for this tour should know that there are many tourists who go on their own. The tour in English is helpful for sure and age explained that only the last 20 min would me devoted to...More

So glad I took a guided tour of the Schindler Museum

This tour with our guide Matt was just excellent. Our tour felt very thoughtfully curated - Matt guided us through highlights of the museum, weaving us through the different exhibits, and explaining and elaborating as we went along. I learned so much from this tour...More

Worth your time

This was one of the more unique small museums I've been to. It walks you meticulously through the years of the Nazi occupation. You really get a sense of how much Krakow changed. I highly recommend a guided tour, which I booked here on Tripadvisor...More
