  • An extremely impressive monument to the Polish Post Office worker killed by Nazi forces. Unfortunately on the day of visiting (Tuesday) the museum itself had closed at 13.00 hrs  more »
  • The Museum is not large, but you might want to get there to see this Polish post in the free city of Gdansk and its defense during the attack of Nazi forces in September 1939.

  • If the attack on Westerplatte was the introduction of the terrible war that involved the whole of Europe and large parts of the world for almost 80 years ago, it was the battle for the post office in Gdansk, one day later, the symbolic battle inside the city. This is a small museum located in the old post office in Gdansk. The building still houses a post office but the other half of the ground floor is a museum focused on showing the decisive battle of 1939 post office building. There are so many interesting details and objects to study, ranging from the battle of how everyday life was in Gdansk before the war. As with their huge big brother, WW II Museum, this museum is not focused on weapons and military tactics. The exhibition is based on the people who were involved in this horrible event, but also on the daily work at the post office. So anyone who wants to see the weapons, uniforms and military gear in quantities should go elsewhere. Very worth seeing for a little money. The entrance costs only 8-10 PLN, which is about $20-25. The Museum is suitable for all ages but can of course was a little difficult for the little ones. There is audio guide in English that pilots the visitor through the Museum. It is, however, very extensive and will take much time and was a little difficult to fast forward and back in; if you are lucky (as I had) and happen to be almost alone in the Museum, it was the human Wizard very courteous and took over the guidance.
