Things to do in Schindler's Factory
One of the most popular tourist attractions in Krakow, this factory and its history became famous worldwide thanks to Steven Spielberg’s moving film, "Schindler's List". Oskar Schindler was a German entrepreneur who was credited with saving 1,200 Jews from death by employing them in his enamelled goods factory so they could avoid horrible living conditions and ultimately death in the Nazi labour camps.
Schindler’s Factory is located 2km from the city centre and is set on the site of the former factory. The museum exhibits reconstructions of events, images, newspaper clippings, artefacts and recordings from that tragic time in history. Discover various rooms of the factory, each reconstructed to transport you back in time to help you understand what life was really like. Walk through Oskar Schindler’s former office, view some of his personal items and engage with the interactive displays to be truly immersed.
Explore the permanent exhibition, titled ‘Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939–1945’ as it tells the story of Krakow during World War Two and its inhabitants, both Polish and Jewish. Learn about life under German rule from 1939 until it was ‘freed’ in 1945 and the imposition of Soviet communist dominance over Poland after the end of World War II.

Reviews Schindler's Factory
“With this card you can get free transportation for 2 days and visit a wide variety of museums and attractions!. I Visited Schindler List Fabric, awesome experience.”
“Tolle Führung, sehr informativ, sehr einfühlsam, sehr bewegend!”
“Man bekommt auf bequeme Weise einen interessanten Überblick über die Stadt und ihre Geschichte. Die Fahrerin war freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Zeitbin Schindlers Fabrik war für uns mit einer Stunde zu kurz bemessen, so dass wir die Abholung verpasst haben und zu Fuss zurück gehen mussten.”
“Wir wollten eigentlich ein Einzelticket, mussten aber wohl doch eine Führung bezahlen. Das war nicht transparent, auch vor Ort nicht.Die Ausstellung/Fabrik selbst war gut.”
