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!

Excellent insights into Krakow during WW2

The Oskar Schindler Factory Museum is housed in the office building of the factory, little of which now exists. The tour isn't just about the man himself, although our guide gave us several insights into his activities before and during the war. It covers the...More
