At the time of opening it was universal exhibition, designed by Polish and foreign authors as prof. Norman Davies. Showing attrocities of war all over the world, not only from Polish point of view.

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
