We took a train from Warsaw at 10 am reached Lublin at 12:15. We took a short taxi ride from the station to maydenek. We had written to them earlier that we wanted an English speaking guide , they had arranged for one. We took a walk around the place, and it had a sombre feeling . It was not... More

Admission is free. If you want, you can pay for group guided tours in several languages. But it's not really necessary. You can go around the camp by yourself at your pace. There are signs in Polish, English and Hebrew to explain everything as you go to the different buildings. At the entrance is a huge monument called "The Monument... More

Unlike Auschweitz, there were comparatively few visitors in Majdanek when I visited in June 2016, which is surprising given Majdanek's location near Lublin city centre. The nearness of residential buildings, many of which (from photos) appear to have been there during WW2, must have added to the sheer despair felt by inmates and victims. Majdanek is obviously the most intact... More

There are no words to describe the camp and all things which you can see there. Absolutely must see if one's in Lublin.

This concentration camp is almost untouched (restored as original) not as big as Auschweitz but more poignant. Walk round at your pace and feel the emotion in each exhibit. Well worth a visit

Majdanek is a place that you simply need to visit when in Lublin. Spend that little part of a day in your life learning about it's history. Be respectful. It will have an impact on you. May leave you angry, speechless, afraid... you will not leave Majdanek and remain indifferent

The State Museum at Majdanek, a memorial museum and educational center founded in the fall of 1944 on the grounds of a Nazi extermination camp, is just outside of Lublin, Poland. In addition to barracks where prisoners lived, and buildings used for killing the victims of the Nazis, this museum has a permanent collection of artifacts. During our visit, we... More

This is a very well preserved Nazi run and administered concentration camp. It was used to house Soviet prisoners-of-war and to exterminate Jews. It is easy to get to- just about within the city limits of the city of Lublin. As stated, almost nothing was destroyed with the Nazi defeat. Therefore, the visitor can enter some of the original wooden... More
