Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory – branch of the Historical Museum of the City of Kraków

ul. Lipowa 4, 30-702 Kraków


The permanent exhibition titled “Krakow under Nazi Occupation 1939—1945” is primarily a story about the city and its inhabitants, both Polish and Jewish.

It is also a story about Nazi Germans – the occupiers who arrived here on 6 September 1939, brutally disrupting Krakow’s centuries-long history of Polish-Jewish relations. This exhibition has been created with the use of various means that go beyond the framework of traditional museum exhibitions, such as theatricalization of exhibition space, elements of stage design, multimedia solutions, etc. Krakow’s past has been recreated here in an evocative way in order to give visitors an opportunity to experience history in a direct, almost tangible way.

The facility at 4 Lipowa St is far more than a museum. Apart from permanent exhibition area, it comprises a bookshop, a cafe, a cinema and temporary exhibition area used for presenting other aspects of the city’s history complementary to the main narrative. Attractive educational activities are also available.
