I am in the process of organising my stay in Krakow and looking at options for walks and activities. I am planning to visit the Schindler Museum, Tours seem to start outside the gates and then you are escorted by a tour guide. I am familiar with the history of the museum having seen the movie "Schindler’s List" a few times and read Thomas Keneally’s book as well as information I have seen online.
Is a tour necessary? Or is it possible to get around on my own using audio (if provided) or a guide book? How difficult or easy is it to get there from the Old Town or Kazimierz which is probably the neighbourhood where I am going to stay .
I am anticipating that with the re-release of Steven Spielberg's movie in a remastered version the museum will become an even busier tourist destination.
