Gestapo Headquarters Museum, Warsaw

(4.2/5 based on 280 reviews on the web)
A haunting reminder of the Nazi Gestapo's presence, Gestapo Headquarters Museum focuses on individual stories of victims. Each cell is an exhibit that details the treatment of the prisoners there. This is accompanied by video installations or information panels in English. Some of the images displayed may be disturbing for young children, so use caution when touring with the family. It is a small space, but each display is packed with information. Make Gestapo Headquarters Museum part of your personalized Warsaw itinerary using our Warsaw vacation route planner.
