First casualties of WWII when postal workers defended the post office from the German army. Small museum to the event is very interesting and the monument outside excellent soviet era example.

This is well worth visiting. Without telling the whole story (Google it for details) this was the main Polish Post Office run by the Poles, as given to them after WW! when Gdansk became a "Free City". In September 1939, attacked by German soldiers and irregulars, with artillery and flame throwers. The Polish defenders who were not burnt alive, were... More

Good history on the day we went there was a charge but some days are free but it only pennies to get in. Thought it was going to be a large place but it's only about two corrdors so don't except too much.

About 5 minutes walk from the old town, the museum has an impressive sculpture outside. The museum is closed Monday and Saturday but free of charge on Tuesday's. It should really be called the museum of the start of WW2 as that's basically what it depicts, it is only a small museum but to see the exhibits, pictures and accounts... More

The history of the building is interesting. The museum itself is small, just a few rooms with historical artifacts and pictures from the period.

A very moving museum, I'm so glad to have visited. Staff were friendly and obliging. I can't believe I had never heard of the atrocities that happened in that very building!

The building itself was lovely, with a stunning monument outside. Free access to the museum on a Tuesday. Very small once inside but worth hearing the horrific facts to appreciate the heroic acts of these men.

We looked it up on the internet to see if it was open on the Sunday and it said it wasn't, however, when we went to go and see the monument, it was. Quite confusing, not sure if they have different opening times during the winter. It was really interesting to see how the postal workers defended the post office... More

Beautiful Gdansk is wonderful to visit. It's difficult to imagine that in the past, some of it in the recent past, this city has experienced horrific crimes against humanity. A visit to the Polish Post Office Museum is a sobering reminder that this city has had more than its fair share of sorrow. This is a still functioning post office;... More
