The concentration camp doesn't seem to be it, maybe because it is near the town of Lublin and it is sorrounded by house and roads. But even it is a small concentration camp compared to Auswhitz and others you can see the terrible place, the showers where a lot of Jewish and other deportees where deprivated of every personal objects(...

This concentration camp is established on the outskirts of the city of Lublin and is just like Auschwitz. Majdanek receives much less attention than other concentration camps such as Auschwitz or Dachau, but keeps inside the same horrors and the same testimonials. In this concentration camp, there are many guides that have a great linguistic skills and can speak many... More

Majdanek (pronounced My-danek) is the best preserved of all the concentration camps in Poland, so it is worth a visit. In addition it seems that it had the best records of who was there and was killed. Of course it is a moving experience and should be compbined with a visit to the Grodska gate museum (nn theatre)

This camp is very important, like all others, and is extremely moving and interesting. It is well-preserved, and it seems that in a few years some of the original blocks and exhibits will wear off and stop being there. My visit there was very emotional , it makes you think about the important things in life.

Apparently Majdanek is the most intact concentration camp still to exist. You enter where the trains would've come in and where the terrified prisoners were dumped and stripped naked, separated from their loved ones, then ferried into the showers for disinfecting before either being gassed in the chambers or sent to a life of hard labour. Majdanek offers an insight... More

I have been to Majdanek a number of times but my last visit was the most informative and moving. This was thanks to the new museum that has opened at the camp. It focuses on telling the stories of some of those who were held there. The museum is extremely well done and an important resource for any serious visitor.... More

Easy to find the number 156 bus from opposite the old town tower drops you out side for 2.80 zloty. Very well kept and preserved camp. Despite reading how close to the town this concentration camp is it is very difficult to believe until you see it. Very informative information boards throughout the camp all had the information translated into... More

This museum is near the City Centre and accessible by public transport although would not be too expensive by taxi. Entrance is free. This was a humbling, thought provoking experience but not depressing. I would not recommend this for younger children.

I've never really been to a concentration camp, I'm glad this was the first one I'd seen. Very sad place. The barrack that touched me the most us where they house the shoes of all the prisoners. Very eery! If you're in Lublin, you must visit Majdanek. It's about 10mins away from the city center
