Really good museum. Very well made and massive facilities. Audio guide a must and prices very reasonable. As it's linear you do need three hours if reading all. Harrowing in many parts and highlights how much Poland was affected.

Emphasis on Poland and East European theater. A spectacular presentation that needs at...More

As travelingjohn123 says, but I would advise buying your tickets on line beforehand to make sure you can get into the museum, they only have a few for sale, on a turn up on the day basis.overall this is a must visit
