Closed on a day we arrived!

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 :/

A former prison
Nov 2018 • Couples
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.

The museum is divided into three parts and each one is very interesting.
1. History of place as a prison,no english,but the woman at the desk gave us a leaflet which had good english explanations.
2.History of Poland ,displays only in Polish.
3. Lodz ghetto,best display about ghettos I have ever been to along with excellent English descriptions.

Much better if you can read Polish

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)

I always recommend here to friends and family.

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.
