What to Expect
You’ll meet your guide at Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum in the heart of Krakow. Before you begin your tour, you’ll get a brief overview of who Schindler was and why he became the inspiration for Schindler’s List, Steven Spielberg’s iconic film. Inside the museum, photos, film, and eyewitness accounts convey the devastating effects of the Nazi occupation of Krakow, setting the stage for Schindler’s story. History comes to life as you learn the human tragedies behind major political events. The permanent exhibit has been widely praised for its artistic, interactive design, geared to transport visitors to wartime Krakow and relate its complex history in a manner both personal and deeply memorable. Uncover the stories that took place within the walls of Schindler’s factory, where employment protected over 1,000 people from deportation to concentration camps. Your guide will answer questions and provide expert commentary to enrich your experience.

Very interesting, insightful, educational I found too. I think the movie portrays this very well personally. Very moving. I would recommend this, took my companion and I about 3 hours to get around, but that can be gone or take.
