Thought provoking tour around the former camp. Seeing the shoes and the ashes was heart wrenching but a must see. Very good insight into the history of the camp, with actual property that was left there.

It is not the place someone should recommend or not. If you are in Lublin, you have to go there just to not forget or if you don't know, just to get known.

It is hard to visit but You should. This is a place with history, very emotional. No problems with tickets. Not so much people.

This death camp located in vicinity of parks, busy streets and apartment buildings. Although a historic landmark - where the ashes of close to 800,000 burnt bodies remain for display, people decide to walk their dogs, take their kids for a stroll and play sports and have bbqs on the grounds of what was the second or third largest death...

This is somwhere evryone should visit, we had a young lady guide who relayed some of the terrible storys and facts of the camp, it really was thought provoking that one groupof human beings could inflict such cruelty to another, the sad thing is we as humans do not learn. the camp information and exibits were very good and the...

This horror camp from WW 2 is a must visit if you're less than 1 hour drive away on your travels. When we visited in summer season it was very quiet which added to the overall horrific experience. Must see

Beggars belief that such horrors can be perpetrated by fellow humans. The testimonies of the prisoners make the museum a personal record. Not crowded which gives you chance to experience thoughtfully.

Visiting Majdanek in the heat of late July was not easy, emotionally or physically. This former camp is deeply moving and tragic, and standing next to the mausoleum of ashes is a haunting experience that I will keep with me always. I visited several other camps in Germany and Poland (Ravensbrück, Treblinka, Auschwitz, and Auschwitz Birkenau) and was most struck... More

Walking around Majdanek leaves you with so many thoughts of the poor people who suffered here. The fact that the Russians liberated this camp so quickly means that so much is still intact. We took nearly 4 hours wandering around the site trying to take it all in, as it was July the insides of the huts were unbearably hot... More
