The exhibition is put together very well indeed, themed rooms, lots of original pictures, posters and artefacts all hang together to make it an impressive and memorable display. It can get crowded when groups are in. A nice, easy 30 minute walk from the main square

Great museum, lots to see and read up about, probably not good for younger kids. Would visit again. Don't visit Krakow without going here.

For those interested in WW2 history and fans of the film Schindlers List, this museum is a must. A few hours covers the museum, or you can book a tour of the Jewish quarter of the city which includes the factory. Highly recommended

We went in here after doing the walking tour of the Jewish district with the same guide, very informative view of Krakow before through and after the war, not all about Schindler though, but well worth doing.

Much more information about the Jewish population during the war than Schindler himself but still very interesting and moving. The film near the start tells the story of Oskar Schindler.

You may not have heard of this place, or may think you are going to see an industrial factory but this is one of the best, most informative museums I have ever been to. It tracks the establishment & eradication of the Jewish ghetto during the Nazi occupation through recordings of people who lived through it & artefacts. The horrors... More

What a fascinating part of history but be prepared to have the tissues at the ready . It tells the story of what the poor Jewish people of Krakow suffered in the hands of the German soldiers & what Oskar Schindler did to help them . There are some very sad stories to be told . Well worth a visit

Found the place very interesting and a lot of things to look at, however there was an awful lot of reading to be done and when busy you couldn't get close enough to read. We also found that there wasn't much about Schindler himself.
