Full description
Learn the real life story behind the Steven Spielberg movie “Schindler’s List” on a guided 2-hour tour of the Schindler Factory Museum. Spielberg’s great contribution was to present to the world one of the most moving and incredible stories related to World War II. More than 1,000 Jews in Krakow owe their lives to a single person: Oskar Schindler.

Schindler's Factory Museum opened its doors to the public in June 2010, after years of meticulous preparation. Located in the original Oskar Schindler Enameled Goods Factory, you will be taken back step-by-step, learning the history of World War II in Krakow from the beginning until the arrival of the Soviet Army in 1945.

Walk through rooms filled with memories of Oscar Schindler, and see the permanent exhibition "Kraków Under Nazi Occupation 1939-1945." Learn the story of Kraków and its inhabitants, both Polish and Jewish, starting with the events that took place a month before the war. Hear about the first months of Nazi occupation, all the way up to the history of Krakow's Ghetto and the Płaszów Concentration Camp.

Next, go to the rooms dedicated to the story of Oskar Schindler and the 1,200 Jews whose lives He saved. The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes, but you can easily extend and stay to watch movies and explore documents related to the heroes of this incredible story.
