Big with plenty of things to read and look at. Doesn't really tell you about Schindler though, the actual factory is no longer there the exhibit is in the old administration rooms

We were surprised just how good this visit turned out. The Schindler factory has be n turned into a wonderful museum, showing both the history of Kraków and the working of the factory. It has been produced with imagination and manages to maintain interest throughout the whole tour. Excellent.

Really disappointed on this tour as I expected a Oscar Schindler tour of the factory to represent the man and the survivors but found it was a experience of Kracow during the war and not what he did , it wa so disjointed I left the private tour to view on my own .

If you go here just expecting Schindlers list you're going to be disappointed, there is a bit but mostly this stands as historical record of the bravery of the Poles of all faiths of Krakow & their enduring spirt. This museum is included in the Krakow card and make use of the cloakroom it's free.

We were staying nearby so walked there and paid at the door. You can do a tour and have a guide but we did it ourselves. Moving and informative even without a guide. You learn about how Schindler managed to do what he did and why. Not the film version. A couple of hours well spent.

I was expecting the visit to Schindler's Factory to be all about Schindler and why/how he saved so many Jews but it wasn't it was an exhibition about how Poland was occupied by the Nazi's during WW11

The Schindlers factory is a must when visiting Krakow. The layout & design within the building takes you on a journey from just before the war started until the liberation of Poland. The information provided throughout this journey is very informative & we learnt a lot more than we expected too. One thing to bare in mind, the factory closes... More

chronological account from pre War to after red Army "liberation", filled in lots of gaps in our knowledge of events in Europe. Tied in well having been to Auschwitz earlier & recently watching Spielberg film. Walked through Jewish Quarter to get there & south of river where ghetto was, something of immersion therapy about the few days in Krakow.
