Entry into this museum cost 24 zloty (around £5), not too expensive, but as other reviews point out not a great deal about Schindler. However, that should not put you off from visiting. The information you are given allows you to understand and see what...More

I went when there were throngs of school students. That impeded my experience as it was difficult to access the exhibits. That notwithstanding, the exhibits were comprehensive and used a lot of technology and media to engage its audience. It felt a bit too show-y...More

This museum is very well set out and very informative but I was disappointed as the name implies it is about Schindler and his life and it isn’t at all. It is just based on the war and he doesn’t come into it much at...More
