I stopped into this place as it seemed interesting, I was not disappointed and only being able to speak English I was giving a one on one tour, staff could not be anymore helpful. Thank you

If you are into the history of WW2 then you have to make a visit here, you will find out about the horrors of the war and the determination of the Polish people to get independance. A real eye opener and well worth a visit. A good place to take children so that they can become more aware of what went on and hopefully learn how these horrors should never be repeated.

The museum at No.13 Gdanska St is housed in a former women's prison. It is free entry, the attendant who realised that we spoke no Polish telephoned for an English speaker who explained what's what. Spread over two floors, lower the prison and upper Polish struggle from 1700s to 1918. Not a lot of English signage but you'll get a flavour. In the courtyard there is an old prisoners transport, this courtyard was the execution area.

We arrived on Thursday 24/10 and we found a sign that the museum is closed. There was no info anywhere else about this. Such a disappointment! We did not go to Radegast that day also in case it was closed as well :/

This museum is about the struggle for independence over the centuries. The most interesting part for non Polish speakers is the (relatively) modern use of the buildings in Gdanska street as a prison (ie from late 19th century to 1950s). The cells have been adapted to show the changing use over the years with photographs and descriptions of the (mainly women) prisoners. There is a small leaflet in English, and a board at the start, but few/no captions in English.
There is a large exhibition on the struggle for independence over two floors, but mainly text and pictures (with a few uniforms) and no English translations.
No photography allowed (as far as I could work out)
