A big museum with lots of pictures and decriptions in English, a must see in Lublin. Easy to go from old town Lublin, just take a bus outside the old town and it will stop directly at the entrance of the museum.

it is exactly how you would imagine however, I found that the security staff kept a close eye on us. I found this uncomfortable and it took away from the experience

A place to see but without children. Nothing can prepare you to see the cruel history Polish people experienced. Very sad but eye opening place.

Not the kind of place for a "happy" day trip but well worth it to get a taste of the horrors of the holocaust. Most of the camp has been reconstructed, as the Nazis did do their best to cover their tracks but it is...More

The place seems well run and organised, there are good, informative exhibitions in several of the old camp buildings. In my view, it was less about studying the exact details of the history (as was well laid out), but a must-do visit to see where...More

Make sure you pay for a personal tour in your native language. There is far too much to learn with a brochure or a book and touring alone. I have been to several other camps and each one is different. A very memorable day that...More
