Schindler Factory - Museum, Krakow: 14 reviews and 34 photos
Schindler's factory is located just outside the city centre of Krakow but is still a walkable distance from the Jewish quarter. When I visited the exhibition at the end of April 2007 it was small as it had been open only a couple of weeks. For a small fee (3 zloty) you could see Schindler's office and the view across the factory from the office. There was also an interesting exhibition of text detailing what Schindler did before, during and after Nazi occupation. There was also a guide on hand who gave a brief introduction to the museum and answered any questions put to him.
I know they were seeking further funding when I was there to expand the museum and to perhaps restore one of the factory buildings (they are currently derelict) and buy some Schindler related artefacts so perhaps it will be bigger and better when you go.
To get to the factory exit the Jewish district and head over the river using ul. Starowislna. Once over the river, head down the road for a bit until you get to ul. Kacik on your left. Walk down there for a long way until you get to a railway bridge. Walk under the bridge and you will get to ul. Powia. The factory is on the right a bit further down the road. It should take 15-20mins to walk from the Old Synagogue.
Address: ul. Powia
Directions: South of historical centre, across the river.
