I really enjoyed the lecture about Oskar Schindler at the beginning of the tour. Our fantastic guide Woicek gave us much more context about his life and him as a person. The museum focusses on the time of Occupied Krakow. There was a lot of information in the museum, so it was incredibly helpful to have a guide who navigated us through the exhibition and history. Loved the small group size as well! I can definitely recommend this GetYourGuide Originals tour!
