Our guide to Schindler's Factory Guided Tour
The former Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory nowadays houses a permanent exhibition entitled 'Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939-1945', which is one of the most interesting and important exhibitions to visit when in Krakow.
Showcasing both individual and collective dimensions of the monstrosities war brought upon Polish citizens it is a true must-see for everyone even slightly interested in history.
The museum is built in a unique way: each room is meticulously arranged to resemble a very specific place – a street, a hairdresser’s salon, a labor camp, a railway station and more (there is 45 of them in total).
Pop in at the photographer’s shop, board a tram and watch a view from the windows; take a look at a typical Jewish apartment in the Ghetto. Once overwhelmed by the omnipresent enemy, you will finally feel the bittersweet relief of liberation by the Soviet Army.
The exhibition presents documentary photographs, eyewitness accounts, film documentaries and multimedia shows combined in order to create a chronological vision of Krakow’s history. Don't miss the best historical museum in Poland.
