Fastest Way to Schindler’s Factory Museum

I will be completing a bike tour in Krakow at 4:30 p.m. on May 15th in Main Square Market. What is the fastest way to get to Schindler’s Factory Museum? I want to spend as much time there as possible before it closes for the evening. What is the least expensive way to return from Schindler’s Factory Museum to Main Square Market?

From my research, it appears to be about a 30-minute walk? Normally I do not mind walking, but I doubt I will want to walk after the long bike tour.

A tram will get you from the center of Krakow most of the way to the museum; it's about a 5-10 minute walk from the tram stop (I now forget which one) but there are signs directing you from the tram stop to "Oskar Schindler's Factory."

There are several trams to get to the museum, depending on where you leave from. The closest tram is probably by the post office. There is a TI across from the basilica and they can tell you which stop you get off but it's near Ghetto Heroes Square. You walk across the square and down the side street (just to the left after a bus/tram stop with a sheltered roof). Continue down that street. At the point the street curves to the right you go straight along the path (don't follow the street). At the end of the path look to your right and you'll see the museum.

I would highly recommend going the next morning if you can as an hour is not enough in this museum. See the museum chronologically from bottom to top.
