The desk sort of sums it up. The tour was very much based just around Poland's general link in WW2. It had little reference to Shindler as the last maybe 5 or 10 minutes he actually started to talk about the factory. It turns out they sold part of the factory to an art gallery, I personally didn't go down there after. The guide seemed pretty scripted as I asked a question or two and there was a clear Language barrier between me and the guide even though he'd spoke English. It is worth a vist if your around Krakow, but it's nothing amazing in my opinion, I sort of expected more but that was just me.

I learnt more about the man from the film Schindler's list!!!
We were on a tour which was rushed,too big and very hard to follow as it was almost impossible to keep up. By the time we moved into a room the guide would already be moving into the next one. I think the tour was just over an hour and I was none the wiser.
The museum may be good. I didn't get the chance to see enough of it to really comment.
If you do go do not go on the tour and most definitely pre-book your tickets.
I would not recommend.

we enjoyed this tour. You must allow 2 hours and tours stop 2 hours before closing hours. Within walking distance of old town

Visited with OH and really didn't get the full benefit of it... Far too many large groups - loud speaking in foreign languages, blocking walkways and monopolizing exhibits. Wish the admissions had been monitored. Spoiled it for us.

We originally went into the factory hoping to find out lots about Oskar Schindler but were extremely surprised at what we discovered. It showed loads of information about the Jewish Ghetto's and other aspects of the war. Well worth a visit but be sure to book, as the line to get in was extremely long.
