About
Exhibition Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939–1945 is located in the former administrative building of Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory at 4 Lipowa Street. The exhibition is primarily a story about Kraków and its inhabitants, both Polish and Jewish, during World War Two. It is also a story about Nazi Germans – the occupiers who arrived here on 6 September 1939, brutally disrupting Kraków’s centuries-long history of Polish-Jewish relations. Due to high popularity of the museum, pre-booking is required.

    I have visited many WWII museums but this was absolutely excellent. Especially having watched Schindler’s List prior to my visit. You actually walk in the footsteps of Liam Neilson , etc. Touching the banisters as you walk along the exhibition brings home the reality that the place played in the Holocaust. At least it was a redeeming one.

    A must see very informative
    If you have seen Schindlers list this museum will amaze you if you haven’t it’s still extremely informative tells you about Jewish life from before WW1 to just after WW11 showing some of the atrocities and how Oscar Schindler managed to save some of the Jewish people who he became extremely close to I would suggest booking on-line but ticket only a tour guide is not necessary you get a lot more time to walk around and take everything in without a guide. Allow yourself at least half a to see the factory as it is big. At the end of the factory there is a small cafe where you can purchase much needed refreshments and snacks and a small gift shop

    Very interesting. History. Don't bother with a guided tour. Do it yourself but book a skip the line ticket online in advance.
    I agree with the previous reviewer. I did a guided tour but you can do this on your own. It wasn't worth it unless you maybe don't understand Polish or English as the information are in these two languages mainly. Pretty much self-explanatory. Easy to follow and navigate. Parts of the museum are quite narrow so when it is busy as this is a popular tourist attraction, the museum can feel quite crowded. Very interesting and I learnt a lot without feeling overloaded. I would allow maybe one and a half to two hours here. If you don't do the tour, get your tickets online as the line to get tickets was long and you can skip this then. If you have a big bag or umbrella they will ask you to keep it in the locker room (no charge). This is definitely worth a visit. History. Educational. If the weather is nice, you can walk from the main Old Town but it will take maybe 35 minutes. Suggest a tram or UBER otherwise. Taxi drivers do wait outside but charge a fortune.

    Excellent museum, long queue
    One of the best museums I have ever been, with a lot of love for details. It is really crowded. We went without reservation 30 minutes before the opening and the queue was already really long, we had to wait another 30-40 minutes before we could enter. Not sure if it is worth visit the museum with a tour (we went independently), but it will help in avoid the queue for sure.

    Awesome
    A unique experience in every way. The only negative aspect was that you have nowhere to park your car near the museum, I also got a fine. Otherwise, the museum itself offers you a real journey inside the ghettos of Krakow. Interactive cameras, video clips, extremely useful information and a very well-thought-out route, you will find yourself in one of the coolest museums in Europe, Schindler's Factory.

    Interesting
    There was a long queue, but worth it. Initially busy in the museum, then it seemed to quieten. There was a lot to see and well worth the wait. An interesting film to watch in the cinema and then lots of exhibitions to view. They had made a real effort to try to capture the atmosphere of various events. Lots of reading. Great value for money.

    Very Extensive Presentation
    If you want to know the whole story of Poland's suffering at the hands of the Nazis this museum will recount the events in the most clear, concise and accurate terms. Extensive and as interesting as you can get and highly recommended. A dark chapter in the world's history.

    Very well-designed museum.
    This museum focuses more on the history of WWII rather than the personal history of Oscar Schindler. Our guide was highly professional and knowledgeable about the topic. Despite having many visitors in our group, she patiently answered all of our questions. Although the staff and the Polish friends we encountered could appear serious at times, most of them were very friendly and willing to help!

    Interesting museum about the history of the Schindler factory and the wider perspective of the war in Krakow. They really paid attention on how to bring the story, different years presented in different ways. Made an impression!

    Crowded place with interesting exhibition
    strongly recommend to buy a ticket before. if not, it takes quite some waiting time to get in. the exhibition is multi media and interesting, though it is Not very interactive. also it is quite crowded with narrow floors. that is clear considering the historic place and use, but good to know for people suffering from claustrophobia

This museum is so very well done. The topic of course is sad but you learn a lot and can only respect what you are seeing and reading. It is very immersive. Meeting the people in the photos was heartbreaking but this place is respectful and honours the past. I can’t say we loved it. But I’m glad we went.

Very nice museum which takes you through the history of the German occupation in Poland and specifically the circumstances for the Jews in Krakow. The exhibition itself is very nice and modern, however our experience was worsened drastically by the HUGE (30-40 ppl) groups of Italian tourists with earphones on that were lead around the museum by guides with microphones. The museum has a lot of quite narrow passages and on several occasions we found ourselves having to wait and queue until the guides had finished explaining OR having to navigate through the large groups blocking the exhibitions who were quite unwilling to give space for two people to pass. I am sure the overall museum had been magnificent, if it hadn’t been for the large tourist groups.

We decided to visit the Schindler factory museum after visiting Auschwitz, and glad we did. It's very well laid out and takes you through the period of the occupation in stages. We found it very moving to see all the photographs and read the accounts of the people in and around the ghetto. We thought originally it was to do with Oscar Schindler himself but does not. Would highly recommend a visit. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

There is a lot of hype about visiting Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory due to the interest the movie has caused and l say that in very respectful way. l was exploring the Jewish Quarter Kazimierz area when l came across the museum as there were many golf buggies and people waiting out the front of the museum. I enter the building and had no problem in buying a ticket without joining a tour group. And did not find it had to navigating around the museum by myself as it gave me time to watch videos and read the notice boards explaining each display. The museum highlights the sad history of Krakow being under the German occupation 1939 to 1945 and atrocities that took place.

You can see Oskar Schindler original office and furniture and a little display on him if you want to know more about him you will need to do your own research to understand more about his life if that was the main reason to visit the museum.

Get your tickets in advance and guide too. There a lot of information to read and learned, so no rush there. Wouldn’t recommend to go with kids, it would be boring for them. Schindler’s Factory has now been turned into a museum and is of great historical value as it showcases the wartime experiences in Krakow during World War II.p German industrial Oskar Schindler and his factory are now famous, largely thanks to the film Schindler’s List and Thomas Keneally’s novel Schindler’s Ark, which Steven Spielberg based it on. By employing over a thousand mostly Polish-Jewish refugees, Schindler almost certainly saved them from the death camps. Opened in 2010, the museum is a dense collage of objects, films, photographs, and full-scale recreations that visitors can walk through.

I was very interested to view the Oskar Schindler factory. It was very interesting. The only thing I would mention is, visit yourself. We did it on a tour and felt we could have spent more time taking it in ourselves. Our your guide was very good, but I guess he was sticking to his timetable.

Worth a visit

Well what an amazing museum!! We were not expecting much when you look at the area it is in and the price you pay, £14 for 2 adults and 1 child!! When you go in looks are deceiving, it starts off very small but then as you walk around it just gets longer and better!! We spent 3 hours but could have done longer! It was amazing and so much information, very educational. Highly recommend!

This museum is truly a must-see place in Krakow.
Here are some tips before a visit:
1. The permanent exhibition is called "Krakow under the German occupation 1939-1945". It tells the comprehensive story of our city during the dark war times. It means that the museum is NOT a biographical museum of Oskar Schindler. Some rooms are dedicated to him and his amazing story but the main storyline is more general about Krakow and its residents (Poles, Jews, Germans) during the 2WW.
2. It is located in the original administrative building of the Factory. So don't expect a visit in the original production halls which serve as the Contemporary Art Musuem (also a great place to see while you're in this neighbourhood!)
3. To avoid long lines and to have much better understanding of a really complicated history of war-time Krakow is is highly recommended to join a guided tour.
