Oskar Schindler's Factory (Fabryka Schindlera)
A wealthy German and member of the Nazi Party, Oskar Schindler bought the Emalia 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, Oskar Schindler's Factory (Fabryka Schindlera), 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 Oskar Schindler's enamel factory.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Admission to the Schindler Factory 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.
