Overall our tour guide was good and seemed knowledgeable. Our issue was she seemed somewhat disorganised.We booked our tour with Headout for 10.15.We were told to be there 15 minutes early.It was at least 10.25 when our guide turned up.Before this my daughter tried ringing a contact number for the tour but there was answer.There were other people waiting as well who had booked through I think through Cracow City tours.They were given a time to meet of 10.20.We all had the same guide. It seemed to take a long time to check us off and get in.Bear in mind we booked Skip the line and expected to get in much quicker.The guide started calling out names.I asked her was she with Headout and her answer was "perhaps". We had been told we would be met by someone with a sign but there was no sign.Our guide and her colleague with the head sets were slow getting started and seemed disorganised. When we got inside the guide was informative but seemed less than enthusiastic about the whole thing. We enjoyed the factory itself but just felt unnecessarily stressed before the start.I would recommend Schindlers factory buy not so much Headout.

So easy to book tickets, which I highly recommend as the queues to get in are horrendous. The ear pieces were comfortable to wear and we could hear the tour guide very well. ..... who was amazing! Interesring and articulate, she gave a comprehensive history of the the background to the occupation of Krakow, and the ghettos.Oskar Shindler is incorporated into the tour as part of the history rather than the tour being specifically about him. We went here before our trip to Auchwitz , which gave us a better understanding of the lead up to the horrors encountered there.

Factory was very easy to find. Cheap Uber ride to entrance. Museum is full of pictures, video footage and artifacts. Really interesting tour. Guide was very knowledgeable. Only downside was our group was quite large along with other groups/individuals in the museum at the same time meaning we couldn't all get into the same rooms at the same time and missed quite a lot of what the guide was talking about

The museum is very well set up and easy to understand. It has a collection of photos and testimonies from survivors that moves us. It's an experience not to be missed!!!

Visiting the horrors of the Holocaust

When Steven Spielberg made “Schindler’s List” in 1993, he put a spotlight on the life and achievements of Oskar Schindler, the German entrepreneur whose selfless acts of sacrifice and humanity saved hundreds of the city’s inhabitants from the gas chambers. Today, you can visit the now world-famous factory where the wartime events of the film took place and learn more about the Holocaust and the many hundreds of people Schindler saved.

Knowing the Nazis

The factory was opened to visitors in 2010, after being turned into a museum that showcases life under Nazi occupation in Krakow. For instance, you can see the “Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939–1945” exhibit, which constitutes a chronological eyewitness report from the Second World War, or experience war-torn Krakow from the window of a tram, or wander through the dense labyrinth of a reconstructed Jewish ghetto. The exhibits have been meticulously crafted to recreate the city space from that era, employing photographs, films, and items from Nazi-occupied Krakow.

While you take in the many exhibits, your guide will tell you more about the lives of the inhabitants of this city, the Holocaust, and Oskar Schindler’s heroic contribution to humanity, with the help of facts and anecdotes. Visiting the painstakingly reconstructed factory is a truly eye-opening experience, leaving you with the vivid and haunting memory of the many heroes, survivors, and victims of the Nazi occupation of Krakow.
