The exhibition in the former factory of Oskar Schindler is located in its former administrative building. This exhibition is a story about Cracow and its inhabitants during World War II, both Poles and Jews, who lived in Cracow at that time. It also relates the Germans, their occupants since 6 September 1939. Occupants who interrupted the continuity of Polish-Jewish coexistence in Cracow.

Former factory of Oskar Schindler is a very interesting place because of its exposure in the context of the history of World War II. It shows the daily life of the inhabitants of Cracow – in their normal functioning and everyday war tragedies.

The story of Oskar Schindler, a factory owner, was described by Steven Spielberg’s film Schindler’s List. Among other things, this is why it is a very popular place among tourists.

It is worth paying attention to the way in which exhibition of the museum was prepared. It is based both on the literal urban scenery and sculptures - which metaphorically tell the story of Cracow during World War II.
