  • Schindler's Factory, GHETTO and the most secret place to visit is the former GESTAPO HEADQUARTERS at 2Pomorska Street. The authentic cells and Interrogation corner with oryginal artefacts went to time of the General Government 1939 -1945. Do not miss opportunity to visit that museum. OSKAR SCHINDLER was jailed there...
  • Must see. Surprisingly, not many tourists visit it. The actual Gestapo cells are a reminder how ugly wars were/are.
  • Very small but well put together. English captions and English speaking staff along with modern video and sound installations help immersion. Don't miss the cells in the basement with original graffiti from the Gestapo period.
  • I think everyone must visit this museum.
  • Only small but another reminder of Poland's suffering.
