  • Visited the museum whilst on a weekend break recently. An incredibly sobering place to visit, it tells the story of the war, the background, and the people affected incredibly well. A must visit...

  • Great museum. We visited on a Monday and when we arrived it was free in. What a lovely surprise that was for us. The museum is so informative and well laid out. Get the audio guide in your language...

  • I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about visiting this museum because it seems like Poland spends lots of money on World War II memories instead of investing millions in present happier projects. However, I was impressed with what I experienced. 🎫 So, I got online tickets, and there was no waiting line. It's recommended to visit this place at 3:00 pm at the latest because it takes around 2-3 hours to see everything without rash. 🎧 Audioguide - recommend because it's nicely synchronized with the area you enter. The history is presented very well, and the interior made me feel like time-travel at that time. I would say that it's worth visiting this museum at least once. It's a great piece of work—a very professional and international-level museum. ⭐️
  • Incredible museum with greatly presented history. I recommend getting the Audioguides, which was perfectly synchronized with my location. The museum did a great job at presenting the history in an interesting way and let’s one kind of relive part of it due to the high amount of historical artifacts in combination with the multimedia material and well decorated rooms. Would definitely recommend going here but you should take at least 4 hours if you really want to dive into everything.
