Full description
Visit one of the most important and popular museums in Krakow on a guided tour of Oskar Schindler's enamel factory and immerse yourself in daily life for the citizens of Krakow during the Nazi Occupation of 1939 to 1945. During your tour, learn about the history of World War II and its impact on the everyday life of ordinary people. See the headquarters of the enamel company, Deutsche Emailwarenfabrik, and hear how its owner, Oskar Schindler saved many of his employees from inevitable death. Wander through the museum's many multimedia installations. Walk along the cobbled streets of the city, enter the photographer's atelier, visit the hairdresser, get on the tram, see a typical apartment in the Jewish ghetto, and then find yourself with its inhabitants in the Płaszów concentration camp. The five key points in the city's history are marked by "memory machines" throughout the building – the stampers which you can use to obtain a commemorative stamp associated with the given historical event. At the end of your tour, enjoy a unique souvenir of your visit to the factory.

The guide, Alicia, was great, because she explained a lot of things and curiosities that it is impossible to see in the museum if they don't explain it to you in a language that you know. I have no problem spending a little more time to explain everything well. a charm.

Tour guide is nice and told us plenty of history & stories. However, this is one museum that is more interesting to discover on myself. If you like to take some pictures, ain’t noone will stop to wait for you. So we did comb through the whole exhibitions in 2 hours, bit like express train! You get there fast fast but you need to give up the immersive experiences
