Best museum visit ever. Would recommend to anyone. Rhytm was perfect, all started from beginning of the war and everything was explained thoroughly during the exhibition. Terror and Holocaust sections were very emotionally hard, but excellently made. Heavy recommendation.

Very informative few hours spent here today. Gives a different perspective on the war than museums in other cities.

Hello! You are lucky to be there on tuesday. It’s was grayed because it’s not possible to buy tickets. You save 23 PLN because it’s FREE admission on tuesdays. It's very popular, so try to be there early.

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
