Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum was officially opened to the visitors in June 2010, after many years of exhibit script writing and preparations. The Museum housed in the authentic Enamel Factory of Oskar Schindler shows the visitors the wartime events taking place in the city and the tragic fate of its inhabitants. The “Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939–1945” exhibition is a chronological eyewitness report from the Second World War. Theatrical reconstructions of the authentic city space by means of photographs, films and items from Nazi-occupied Krakow metaphorically embrace the city’s wartime history, leaving a memory of the heroes in the visitors’ minds. An opportunity to enter the tram in the window of which a film about the city life is showed, a roam along cobbled streets or a walk through the crowded labyrinth of a ghetto with the living conditions of Jews reconstructed – this is only a fraction of what the trip participants will experience.
1. This is a regular tour (group sightseeing), but can be organised as a private tour on request.
2. Tour duration: 1.5–2 hours
3. This is a walking tour, so the participants should wear comfortable sports shoes.

Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List” – the 1993 film set in Krakow struck by the Second World War – told people one of the most heartbreaking stories in the history of mankind. Today, the story of the Holocaust victims is brought closer and made available to the visitors in the former Enamel Factory of Oskar Schindler – the German entrepreneur whose attitude will always be remembered as an act of humanity in the times of cruelty. Thousands of tourists from all around the world take this guided walk around Nazi-occupied Krakow every year. Visiting the place where Oskar Schindler saved the lives of hundreds of people from Krakow, mainly of Jewish origin, is a big experience. Images and sounds following the visitors turn the former factory into the painstakingly reconstructed reality of the survivors and victims of Nazi-occupied Krakow.
