Oskar Schindler's Factory Tours

A wealthy German and member of the Nazi Party, Oskar Schindler bought an enamel factory in Krakow following the German invasion of Poland during World War II. By insisting that his Jewish employees were vital to the workforce and often advocating for them, he saved more than 1,000 people from death. Today, Schindler's Factory, part of the City of Krakow Historical Museum, houses a highly emotive, interactive, and visually stunning permanent exhibition on the Nazi occupation of Krakow.

The Basics
Within the Schindler Factory, a series of exhibits tell the story of the Nazi occupation of Krakow from 1938 to 1944. Plan to spend up to two hours going through the exhibits. You can visit the Schindler Factory independently or stop by as part of a Krakow walking tour, a film sites walking tour, or a Jewish heritage tour. To see more, book a combo package that includes a guided tour to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum and a two-day museum pass that offers admission to the Schindler Factory.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Admission is free on Mondays, but entry and hours are limited.
  • It's best to book tickets in advance online, as same-day tickets may not be available.
  • Note that the Schindler Factory closes early on the first Monday of the month.
  • The last tickets are sold an hour and a half before closing time.
  • English explanations are available throughout the museum.

How to Get to Oskar Schindler's Factory
The Schindler Factory is located on Lipowa Street, several miles southeast of Krakow's Old Town. If you are not visiting on a tour, public transport is available by bus or tram. Take the bus to the Krakowska Akademia stop on Herlinga Grudzinskiego street, or take tram 7, 13, or 24 to Ghetto Heroes Square (Plac Bohaterow Getta).

When to Get There
The Schindler Factory is open throughout the year, with extended hours from April 1 to Oct. 31. It is busiest on weekends and holidays.

Krakow's Jewish Heritage and Schindler's List
To learn more about Krakow's Jewish heritage and the significance of Oskar Schindler's actions during World War II, visit the Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz) and view the 33 memorial chairs in Ghetto Heroes Square, which symbolize the tragedy of the Holocaust. Also check out the Remuh Synagogue and Cemetery, the oldest in the city, and stroll along Szeroka Street, the heart of the Kazimierz, to see remnants of the old ghetto wall. Finally, follow in the Schindler's footsteps and visit several real-life filming locations used for Schindler's List, the 1993 Steven Spielberg film that immortalized him.
