You'll also discover more about the volunteers who bravely struggled to help Jews escape the ghetto. At the tourist information center you can ask for a guided tour, which provides an in-depth history of the site, detailed descriptions, and clarifications of historical data. Note that the museum includes outdoor exhibits, so dress accordingly.
