We appreciated the Anne Frank-like story which was very well presented. The photo exhibit was surprisingly informative and relevant to our personal interest in visiting Poland. This museum is exceptionally well curated. Simple but meaningful.

I stayed in a similar location to where you will be. It's a leisurely walk (maybe 30 mins max) or a 10 mins taxi ride. Enjoy :)
