Full description

Start a journey back in time to Krakow during World War II. Your guide will introduce you to the history of the Polish Jews, giving you a general historical overview of their situation. Heading to the Museum on an eco-vehicle, you will stop at Ghetto Heroes Square - the point of departure for thousands of Jews from the Cracow ghetto to various camps. This place will certainly help you to start this emotional journey through the everyday life of Cracow’s citizens under the Nazi occupation. The Museum is housed in the former enamel factory of Oskar Schindler, the German industrialist who famously saved the lives of over a thousand people during the Holocaust. He was brought into the limelight in 1993 by Steven Spielberg’s famous film 'Schindler’s List'. Ever since that time tourists from all over the world have been coming to Lipowa Street to discover the individual histories of Krakow’s wartime inhabitants, the fate of the Jews, the city’s underground resistance and more, using archival documents, photos, radio and film recordings, period artefacts and dynamic multimedia installations. Get the most from your visit and see Schindler’s Factory at your own pace, without rush with your dedicated private guide.

Meaningful and touching experience. More than the shindler factory it is a real museum, which helps to understand a historical moment that should not be forgotten. The help of the guide is essential to be able to fully understand the meaning of what I know observes. Our guide, Renata, was brilliant!

The tour was very interesting. We liked the guide very much, clear in the explanations and ready to answer all our questions. The only thing is that it didn't leave us much time to look at everything in the museum and there wasn't a chance to take a second tour on our own.

Museum dedicated to the history of Krakow during the Second World War. Very interesting and well built. The guide took us to Krakow and its ghetto in those terrible years. For this museum I think having a guide is very important. The descriptions are all in Polish and English. Our guide spoke excellent Italian and we were lucky enough to have her all to ourselves.
