Cracow Memorial Route Tour
Visit with us 3 museums in one day: Schindlers Factory, Under the Eagle Pharmacy and Pomorska Museum.
This tour to three museums will explain you complementary stories of the II World War and a time that came after it.
Schindlers Factory: Oskar Schindler Enamelled Goods Factory was opened for public in June 2010. The story of Oskar Schindler and his employees is one which has been well-known since the Steven Spielberg movie Schindler’s List, and while that story is now covered in detail on the original site, the museum casts the city of Kraków in the main role of its permanent exhibition titled, ‘Kraków During Nazi Occupation 1939-1945.’
Under The Eagle Pharmacy (Apteka pod Orłem): recently re-opened Museum located in former Ghetto for local area Jewry during the World War II. During that time, pharmacy became a meeting place for the ghetto’s intelligentsia, and a hub of underground activity. Tadeusz Pankiewicz, who was the owner of the pharmacy was the only proprietor to decline the German offer of relocating to the aryan side of the city. The often-scarce medications and pharmaceutical products supplied to the ghetto’s residents, often free of charge, substantially improved their quality of life.
Pomorska Street Museum: Documents, family souvenirs and photographs form the narrative of the Krakow citizens in 1939–1945 and 1945–1956. The documentary is complemented by the elements of stage design, including the arranged interrogation room, as well as the audiovisual presentations or recordings of the witnesses.
On the day of the tour we will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the first Museum: Schindlers Factory or the Pharmacy. On your way you will have a chance to see Podgorze and Zablocie: former Ghetto and its streets. Our driver will give you your entrance tickets and will wait for you outside the Museum, once you will be ready he will take you to the next place. At the end, you will be taken to Pomorska Street and after your last visit you will be driven back to your hotel. Of course our English speaking driver will answer to all your questions!
