Started with Oskar Schindler's story. Very interesting. Then a tour of the museum. The tour is about 'Krakow in the war from beginning to end', with elements of Oskar Schindlers' factory here and there. If you go, definitely do it with a guide, who can tell you much more than if you read all the texts and look at the photos. Our guide was Anna, speaks good English and could tell well!

Was half expecting a homage to the movie but got a pleasant surprise with a quick but insightful history lesson of Nazi occupation of Krakow, how the Poles and Jews were mistreated and in the former real factory. I found it very emotional. I found it very tasteful. It was good value and id highly reconmend it. It wraps up in Oscar Schindler office and has some modern art and poignant memorial that is breath taking and every so often you get your papers stamped which at first feels like a gimmick but by then rings home a true sense of the plight people suffered. Seriously go do this tour.
