We visited the museum hoping to learn a bit more of the history Oscar Schindler firstly it was very busy with students taking up a lot of the exhibition so other members of the public had to bypass some of exhibition also there was so called security personal stationed on different levels who seem very disinterested in their job and...

Without a guide you would miss so much information. Lots of items don't seem to have a purpose but the guides will have a full story about them. We walked here from the city but you can get a cheap taxi. Really interesting and touching places

We visited the exhibition around midday and I would recommend going earlier. It was so busy and crowded it was difficult to take in the exhibition and reflect on its contents. What we did see was fantastic.

If you are even a little interested in the history of World War III this museum gives a very comprehensive overview of life in Kraków for the Polish and Jewish populations before and during the Nazi invasion and occupation. There is a vast collection of material so allow more time than you think you need! I'd suggest visiting here prior... More

Visited The Schindler Museum this visit, a great museum, gives you a full look at the German invasion of Krakow, however, there was very little about what Oscar Schindler himself actually did so from that aspect was a little disappointing, that said, it is an experience and should not be missed.

Truly a remarkable experience. You could benefit from taking your time and soaking up the atmosphere of another time while trying to understand the complexity and compromise of one man's mission to understand another's.

I really enjoyed Schindler's museum. It documents the build up to the war and Poland's occupation in an interactive way. As others have noted. Don't be misled by the museum's name, it's not solely about Schindler's Factory. Make sure to get there early as there was a fairly large queue when we left.

Before going I read alot of reviews which stated that the Museum was more about the Nazi occupation rather than Shlchindler himself. Unfortunately this is true and out of the whole museum there is only a small exhibiton on Schindler. The museum is not built for a large groups and on numerous occasions we were stuck behind large tour groupswhoch... More

Entry to the museum was free on the Monday we visited. The museum has a few interesting exhibitions but if you have been to similar museums then there is nothing here that you wouldn't have seen before and done better. There is very limited primary source material on show with the exhibitions instead focussing on telling the story via reproduction... More
