This was hands down one of the most emotional places I have ever been to. There is countless history on these grounds. I went in April of 2014 and although the place itself is free of charge, we had a tour guide meet us and did a ~3 hour tour (about $75 well worth it). There is so much to... More

This is the best museum in Lublin. It's free of charge and you can wander there for free. Very much important history about concentration camps and the horrors of second world war. You can see how people lived there, how they worked there, how they were tortured and how they died. There is even a huge pile of human ashes... More

It's great that they're trying to preserve the place and make it a main touristic point! Also, you can get for free inside but if you want a tourguide, you need to book before (I guess this will be paid). It's a place worth visiting and it has a lot to tell.

Although it was a very cold and windy day...it totally worthed the price and time. This place is mandatory if you are in Lublin. It touched my hearth so much, you can feel the terrifying times when it happened. For this reason do not go with kids.

This is a Camp where Hitler ordered all the Jewish people to be killed through Gas, execution and other means. Children's shoes are still evident in this place and executor rooms ect.. will still give you frightening experience. If you do go there, don't take children with you as they will be terrified. And take plenty of water as there... More

I think that Majdanek is the camp that was kept more than others. You can see there all the shoes collection, clothes, hair, and crematoriums. As a jew it was a place that explain me more than the books, ehat really happened there.

It touch your heart. Very sad place as its nazi- camp from II WORLD WAR. Take your time as its lots to see and hear from tourists guides. Historic place. There is two impressive monuments. One of them with ashes.

This place will leave a deep impression upon you be it the first of this type of memorial you've been to or one of many. The fact that some of it is intact does give it more of an impact. I decided to have a guided individual tour and my English speaking guide was very patient and well informed. I... More

Very moving exhibition. I travelled by train from Warsaw to visit this site and found it very worthwhile. It was very informative and parts of it were disturbing but it brings history to life and makes you wonder about the monsters who created these camps.
