    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    Choose your desired tour start time and travel independently to Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum in central Krakow. Meet your guide outside and hear how the museum is housed in the very factory where the Nazi industrialist Oskar Schindler employed Jewish workers during WWII. Before starting, get an illuminating introduction to Schindler, learning how Steven Spielberg brought his story to the world’s attention in his 1993 Oscar-winning movie, Schindler’s List. Then, head inside for your in-depth tour. Made up of interactive and photographic displays, the museum concentrates not only on Schindler’s and his employees’ work, but also on Krakow’s suffering during the run-up to war and beyond. As you explore, your guide will provide fascinating commentary, recounting poignant tales that will deepen your understanding of what happened here and Krakow’s history. Learn Schindler’s story and how his Jewish employees manufactured pots, pans, tins and other enamelware for the German army: a vital war effort that protected them from near-certain transportation to the concentration camps. See some of the products made here, view Schindler’s office, and hear the fates of some of the 1,200 Schindlerjuden — Schindler’s Jews — who worked in the factory. Follow your guide around the rooms dedicated to Krakow’s suffering during the war and later 20th century. View photographs of the terrorized city; be transported into the cobbled streets, resistance hideaways and prisons of the Nazi- and Soviet-occupied city; and get a sense of the overwhelming fear that gripped the population through original documents, artifacts, and film and radio recordings. After two hours of exploring, your tour ends outside the building. Say goodbye to your guide, who will provide you with directions back to the city center or your hotel as required.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum in the heart of Krakow. Before you begin your tour, get a brief overview of who Schindler was and why he became the inspiration for 'Schindler’s List,' Steven Spielberg’s iconic film. Inside the museum, photos, film, and eyewitness accounts convey the devastating effects of the Nazi occupation of Krakow, setting the stage for Schindler’s story. History comes to life as you learn the human tragedies behind major political events. The permanent exhibit has been widely praised for its artistic, interactive design, geared to transport visitors to wartime Krakow and relate its complex history in a manner both personal and deeply memorable. Uncover the stories that took place within the walls of Schindler’s factory, where employment protected over 1,000 people from deportation to concentration camps. Your guide answers questions and provide expert commentary to enrich your experience.

Just like another reviewer here, I experienced not to be picked up at 11 A.M. as I was promised. I called the booking agency and they told me the guide would arrive at 11:30 A.M. I was also given the number of the guide by the company itself. Now, at 11:45 nothing had still

We met our tour guide in the foyer & he took us around the museum talking about each area we were in but I would say that it doesn’t give you any time to actually read all the information on the walls etc. You do not spend much time in each area

Walked from our hotel 2 miles away to the museum only to be turned away by a very abrupt woman on the main desk, as it was ‘full’ for the whole day, no exceptions. We weren’t the only ones who were being turned away, whilst we were there we saw at least a dozen other people

Dear Guest, We are very sorry to hear that you could not visit the venue. It seems that the situation you described relates to the service from the museum itself on which we have no influence unfortunately... :( Since daily number of tickets provided by museum is limited we recommend to book the tour from our side. With our help you can do that very easily and without worrying, your entry will be guaranteed! :)

We visited this place on 25 February. Content of factual history and artefacts superb as was the knowledge of the guide. More about WW2 than Schindler himself. However, the tours are too big and the guide is already speaking before you get to the next section behind other
