We loved it because although it is not the story of Oscar Schindler it is a very visual way of explaining the history of Krakow during the Second World War. That is absolutely necessary to visit the museum with a guide because no matter how much you understand English you will never understand the museum better than with a guide.

Guide with a lot of knowledge. A friendly and enthusiastic storyteller. We missed the movie. The cause was a rigid guard. Our guide offered help to a Spanish group and skipped the movie due to time loss. Wish we could have seen it at the end. But that was stopped.

What a great museum! If you are interested in the events of WW2, you should not miss it! You will get a full overview of the events before, during and after the war and certain information about Schindler himself. Tour with Walkatives was also great! I am sorry I don’t remember the name of our guide, but she was excellent! Really into sharing with us the events with feeling and intensity! Great tour!!!
