This is really a must- MUST-see museum. Count on the entire day where you can look at, read, and watch [video interviews and various footage and films] everything. An interactive museum of the highest quality.

At the webside of the museum, at the very bottom, there are some fine pictures from the exibition in Schindler's Factory. You can enlarge them.

Tony Palmer was impressed by the museum and in his opinion it is currently one of the best (or even the best one?) in Europe. I share his enthusiasm for what was created in the museum, although, having travelled less, I cannot make such broad statements.

Yes, it's one of the sites I want very much to return to and take in properly. I did my very best, yet with SO muc h at hand, it was impossible to do given my limited time. I'm wondering if any of the DVDs available at the counter were, perhaps, a compilation of the various interviews. It was SO frustrating to have to pass some by... and I never got the chance to see the Russian Occupation portion. Since I've fallen in love with Cracow and will definitely be returning when I have NO conflicting activities, I will see it again and many other things, as well. Judy and I were transported to the airport by a cab driver who is also a licensed tour guide... so MUCH very interesting information coming at us at the last minute. I got his card, so when I return, I can employ his guide services.

Thanks so much for the recommendation on this museum!!!
