We loved this tour and this museum. Our guide was really adorable, and we were only two to follow the guided tour. As several comments suggest, it is best to visit this museum in the morning so as not to be surrounded by too many people. We went on the first visit (10.00) and it was perfect. The museum is very immersive, original. It's very rare to have the opportunity to visit such a beautiful museum!

Guide was fantastic, met us at the start of the tour and took us through a couple of hours of history and stories of the ghetto. My partner had done the tour previously a few years previously, without a guide, and despite visiting Schindlers for the second time learnt a lot and really valued being toured with an actual person as a guide! Definitely recommend.
