We visited here on a Sunday as its free entrance. We grabbed a couple of audio guides and set off. To use the guides you follow the numbers around the museum and listen to the corresponding recording on your audio guide. However there is no...More

Not as good as the Jewish Polin museum but still another great interactive place. Signs to get around in the correct order could be clearer, but informative and lots to play with to help learning! Even a cafe hidden in the middle. Probably a good...More

It is closed on Tuesday. We went on Sunday and that is a free admission day, so get there early if you go on that day, and I advise to rent the audio guide.
