This is a very small museum. I found the info about the Polish involvement during world war 2 to be very interesting and informative. You can do the entire exhibit in 10 minutes.

This is a fairly comprehensive little history of a few important people and events in Polish history, which I was already very familiar with, and I believe the subjects covered were appropriate for a crash course in...

Actually it's a one room museum. But we were very impressed with how much information about Polish history and culture they managed to display. We spent about and hour their but it was well spent time. Worth a visit.
