Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Enjoy a small-group guided tour of Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum with entrance ticket included.
Make your own way to central Krakow and begin your tour in front of Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum, where your guide is waiting for you. Before heading inside, hear a brief introduction about Oskar Schindler, the inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s award-winning film, 'Schindler’s List.'

Follow your guide into the museum, passing through rooms documenting the impact of World War II on Krakow. Travel back in time through photographs of cobbled streets, resistance hideaways, and prisons of the Nazi- and Soviet-occupied city. Listen in on original film and radio recordings for a sense of the overwhelming fear that gripped the country during that time.

As you continue to explore the interactive displays, learn the stories that took place inside the factory. Hear how Schindler's Jewish employees manufactured pots, pans, tins and other enamelware for the German army, and how this vital war effort protected them from 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.

Your tour concludes outside of the museum, where you can continue exploring Krakow independently.

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.

Traveler Tips


  • "We visited with Discover Cracow and a tour guide showed us around this fantastic and interesting exhibition.Book early as lots of queues from late morning onwards and it gets busy." See review
  • "The museum is definitely worth a visit but with a guide I think it brought it all to life." See review
  • "I would recommend visiting alone and foregoing guide intel over the ability to move at your own pace if you can read and understand Polish, German, Yiddish or English."

The factory is a must see. We arrived at Schindlers factory at 12.50 to meet our guide at 1.05 pm by 1.30pm he still hadn't arrived so had to ring Viator, We were then told he'd be there at 2 with no explanation. After the confusion our guide arrived, he was very knowledgeable not just about the factory but the history of ww2. I would definitely recommend

Our guide was excellent. She was very informative and gave an overview of the factory and condition of life of the Jewish population who were living in the ghetto at the time. Also the power in which the German authority had over these people. Her English was clear and she was able to convey the emotion appropriate to the story. We highly recommend that you use a guide to gain an in-depth understanding of Oskar Schindler,s Factory and the influences that participated in redirecting his vision to have empathy for the Jewish community. A visit not to be missed.

Feedback on Oskar Schindler museum
Lien_DM

(+) Excellent museum about the occupation of Cracow (1939-1945). It is not about Oskar Schindler (although the name of the museum says so). The museum has lots of interesting photographs, movies, objects. It is well organized in themes and these are explained very well. (-) It is too small for the number of visitors they let in. We could not understand our tour guide as there was too much noise from the audiotapes, and from the other tour guides in front or behind us. I would have loved to go and read what was exhibited myself, but there was no time for that.

Dear Lien Thank you kindly for providing us with the feedback regarding the tour. We will get in touch with the Schindler Factory museum and pass them your comment concerning the quality of provided tour guide. We hope that even though, you could not hear the tour guide completely, your visit to the venue itself was a possitive and informative experience. Kind regards,

The guide was very knowlegable, I did wish we climbed the stairs ( on the film) from the bottom to the to rather than from half way, but still really enjoyed it. It was the best tour I went on

Very interesting experience. Loved learning more history about krakow and poland but was surprised there wasnt more on schindler. My only criticism was that it was at times hard to hear our tour guide (through no fault of his own) as there was talking and music coming from the tannoys in some of the rooms

This museum is great, tho you should know its not about Oskar Shindler or the factory, it is about Kracow's occupation by the Nazi Germans. With a guide it is very interesting, however you almost need to go back in and go around on your own in your own time. Essential to book in advance.
