Having visited Westerplatte we were interested in the Post Office museum as it was attacked a couple of minutes before the shelling of Westerplatte making it a historic site.Though the exhibition is quite small it gives insight into the events that began WW2. Exhibits are accompanied by English translations for the main part of the displays and includes the German... More

An interesting history lesson... very moving.. human stories.. fascinating exhibits. The building looks intact (has been renovated, of course) and it takes you back to 1939 the first time you look at it. In the museum almost everything is described in English.

A somewhat neglected spot by tourist organizers. Pity. Together with Westerplatte, it is a must see and learn about Nazi Germany's tyranny. The story is displayed and a large monument describes what should be a lesson for every free man.

On September 1st 1939 German troops opened fire on the Polish Office in Danzig (today known as Gdansk). Six Polish soldiers died then and many were captured. To remember those actions there is a museum dedicated to them. It is a very small museum, you just need 30 minutes to cover it.

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.
