A must see buy tickets before hand as you can queue for hours at the factory to get in, whereas if you buy the tickets elsewhere you just walk right in and bypass the queues. I would recommend going yourself rather than a guide everything is written in English as well as Polish and you just go at your own pace. We were there for 2 hours at least.

Having seen the film this was a must. We arrived at 10.00 to find a que already formed. Found out it is free for limited entry on a Monday. We were lucky enough to get in. It is a little crowded but well worth the effort. Very glad we I’d it.

The presentation of the 2nd World War in the museum is very well but there is a lot of text and there are a lot of people in the corridor who try to pass. You get a lot of information but you cannot gather all of it. It would have been better if there was at least an audio guide. The most entertaining part of the museum is a film about Schindlers factory in the small cinema. Unfortunately. there was not so much information about the factory itself.

This is probably a very good or even great WWII and holocaust museum, but we were expecting more of an Oskar Schindler factory museum. Please know this before you go. Also, buy your tickets at the Pankewitz Pharmacy cashier and avoid the very long lines

Allow a minimum of 2 hours to fully appreciate the pictures and the narrative, including the main film, shown in a small cinema. Many personal stories skillfully shared via a mixture of different medium.
