Overview
When visiting Kraków, take time to delve into one of the city's most riveting stories with a guided 2-hour tour of the Schindler Factory Museum. Learn about the life and legacy of Oskar Schindler, who saved more than 1,000 Jews during the Nazi occupation of World War II. With a guide, explore his original factory, now converted into a museum showcasing artifacts and exhibits that help relay the tragedy and heroism of the real-life events immortalized in Steven Spielberg's film 'Schindler's List.'
What to Expect
Learn the real-life story behind the Steven Spielberg movie
Schindler’s List on a guided 1.5 hour tour of the Schindler Factory Museum. Spielberg’s great contribution was to present to the world one of the most moving and incredible stories related to World War II. More than 1,000 Jews in Krakow owe their lives to a single person: Oskar Schindler.
Schindler's Factory Museum opened its doors to the public in June 2010, after years of meticulous preparation. Located in the original Oskar Schindler Enameled Goods Factory, you will be taken back step-by-step, learning the history of World War II in Krakow from the beginning until the arrival of the Soviet Army in 1945.
Walk through rooms filled with memories of Oskar Schindler, and see the permanent exhibition 'Kraków Under Nazi Occupation 1939-1945.' Learn the story of Kraków and its inhabitants, both Polish and Jewish, starting with the events that took place a month before the war. Hear about the first months of Nazi occupation, all the way up to the history of Krakow's Ghetto and the Płaszów Concentration Camp.
Next, go to the rooms dedicated to the story of Oskar Schindler and the 1,200 Jews whose lives he saved. The tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours, but you can easily extend and stay to watch movies and explore documents related to the heroes of this incredible story.

Definitely buy your tickets before your visit, it's worth doing this trip without a guided tour as there is too much to cram in and you are constantly being moved on from exhibit to exhibit. The museum is quite cramped and there is a procession...More
