Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to central Krakow and begin your tour in front of Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum, where your guide is waiting for you. Before heading inside, hear a brief introduction about Oskar Schindler, the inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s award-winning film, 'Schindler’s List.'

Follow your guide into the museum, passing through rooms documenting the impact of World War II on Krakow. Travel back in time through photographs of cobbled streets, resistance hideaways, and prisons of the Nazi- and Soviet-occupied city. Listen in on original film and radio recordings for a sense of the overwhelming fear that gripped the country during that time.

As you continue to explore the interactive displays, learn the stories that took place inside the factory. Hear how Schindler's Jewish employees manufactured pots, pans, tins and other enamelware for the German army, and how this vital war effort protected them from transportation to the concentration camps. See some of the products made here, view Schindler’s office, and hear the fates of some of the 1,200 Schindlerjuden—Schindler’s Jews—who worked in the factory.

Your tour concludes outside of the museum, where you can continue exploring Krakow independently.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Muzeum Krakowa, oddzial Fabryka Emalia Oskara Schindlera
Choose your desired tour start time and travel independently to Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum in central Krakow. Meet your guide outside and hear how the museum is housed in the very factory where the Nazi industrialist Oskar Schindler employed Jewish workers during WWII. Before starting, get an illuminating introduction to Schindler, learning how Steven Spielberg brought his story to the world’s attention in his 1993 Oscar-winning movie, Schindler’s List. Then, head inside for your in-depth tour. Made up of interactive and photographic displays, the museum concentrates not only on Schindler’s and his employees’ work, but also on Krakow’s suffering during the run-up to war and beyond. As you explore, your guide will provide fascinating commentary, recounting poignant tales that will deepen your understanding of what happened here and Krakow’s history. Learn Schindler’s story and how his Jewish employees manufactured pots, pans, tins and other enamelware for the German army: a vital war effort that protected them from near-certain transportation to the concentration camps. See some of the products made here, view Schindler’s office, and hear the fates of some of the 1,200 Schindlerjuden — Schindler’s Jews — who worked in the factory. Follow your guide around the rooms dedicated to Krakow’s suffering during the war and later 20th century. View photographs of the terrorized city; be transported into the cobbled streets, resistance hideaways and prisons of the Nazi- and Soviet-occupied city; and get a sense of the overwhelming fear that gripped the population through original documents, artifacts, and film and radio recordings. After two hours of exploring, your tour ends outside the building. Say goodbye to your guide, who will provide you with directions back to the city center or your hotel as required.

Our tour guide Kamile was incredible very engaging and knowledgeable, not only does he take you around the factory explaining exhibits he also brings his own material and stories to share, We got talking with Kamile before and after the tour and if you’re looking for a good bar, Kamile knows the best.
