“Small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The museum is very small, there is like 5 rooms to look at. But, take 20 minutes out of your life and it is worth it.

“It is as being there! Scary but Interesting!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Next to Lazienki Park. It is worthy visiting this Museum (within the Ministry of Education). Original location of the Gestapo HQ.
They recreate the atmosphere in the place during WWII, by means of background sounds such as soldiers talking or prisoners mourning, as if you were there at the time.

“A must see in Warsaw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

The eeriness and coldness of this underground building will give you chills. It is not for the faint of heart; however, it allows one to truly grasp the horror and severity of the Gestapo. A must see for anyone traveling through Warsaw. It takes about 30 minutes to go through but the sights and sounds really tell the story of so many. Much of the furniture, interior, and lighting is all original which only adds to the story that they are trying to tell. Everything is in Polish and English so it's quite easy to understand. I do not recommend this for younger children.
