  • I'm actually hard to relate to this place. We were four, everyone appreciated the other value of this place. You can see that the full work and heart are inserted into this place. I think that everyone should go there to convince themselves. I personally have mixed feelings

  • Truly exceptional museum. I consider this one of the best WWII museums in existence. Detailed and thought provoking exhibits with lots of hands on material. Definitely get the audio guide as it's GPS enabled and will automatically inform you of various exhibits as you enter them. I spent a solid 5 hours at the museum (but I prefer to read most of the exhibits in great detail)
  • Absolutely fantastic. It's very well thought out and presented. I have spent most of a day in there and while I've learned a lot if I get chance to go again I'll no doubt find out things I missed on this visit. I thoroughly recommend it to everyone.
  • Definitely worth visiting. Price is fairly low, you will spend a lot of time there(at least 2 hours) for sure and you will be entertained. I have visited a lot of museums, but this one takes the cake for me. A MUST-SEE if you are visiting Gdańsk, there is no doubt about it. Might not be that interesting for very young children, but even teenagers should be able find something interesting and learn a little.
  • Such an amazing building steeped in history really worth going to. The audio guide was good but a lot of it is in English so not necessary. There is 16 exhibitions so perhaps not all to be done in one day to really appreciate it. Such a fantastic little find in Gdansk 😍😍❤💞
  • Incredible place, will take you a whole day to look around. Incredible value and great audio tour. Free cloakroom and lockers. All exhibits in great working order. You get a wonderful idea of WW2 with some of the reproduction streets and sets. All information available in English and in a stunning building and location.
