Immerse yourself into the terrors of the Third Reich and why we must remember. This is on a former Gestapo building site from memory!

Fantastic, well laid out, plenty of room to wander about inside and out. Informative. Remember to take your headphones for the free audi guide.

It's a museum of story telling! Just some pictures are hung and an audio tour describing the pictures related to each era. I actually thought there would be some personal stuff from the old days or anything but there's nothing.

Terrifying account of the maniac who was Hitler and how he came to power - very poignant reading, but must be read.

So much history. It is shocking and disturbing at the same time but well worth the look back. Please make sure you take the time to walk the whole exhibit to absorb the full gravity. it can take a while.

We stumbled upon this site, near our hotel. In pictures and words, it depicts the planned destruction of Warsaw by the Nazis from beginning to end. Harrowing. Educational. Mandatory.

Very well done and informative. Start at the beginning not at the east end. An eye opener for us insular North Americans that forget how severe the tragedies were.

My son is 12 and wanted to visit this, I think they will get a lot out of it if you just let them wander around.

Hi you can do but there is a lot of reading and the pathway is busy, there is also a building which is part of this visit and you may find that you may be able to leave luggage there. Enjoy your visit.
