The museum is a real eye opener and gives a good insight into Polish history during World War 2. It was interactive, informative and at times emotional. Would highly recommend if visiting Gdansk.

This is such an interesting museum! Absolutely heartbreaking in parts but so worth a visit. Leave a long time for your visit - we spent 5 hours and there were additional exhibits we didn’t see!

The museum is an absolute must when in Gdańsk or even in the whole tri-city area. Even if I’m not very fond of war museums I must say that this is one of the best museums all categories. And it looks fantastic from the outside...More

The museum is superb. The architecture, the layout, the exhibition. Everything was top notch about the worst chapter in human history. It's a moving experience walking through the different scopes of WW II. It's also very important that we don't forget about all the madness...More

The building itself is amazing. When you eventually find the entrance it’s into a huge area with a large desk with several people sitting behind it. But wait this is not the ticket desk, this is the information desk informing you the ticked office is...More

As travelingjohn123 says, but I would advise buying your tickets on line beforehand to make sure you can get into the museum, they only have a few for sale, on a turn up on the day basis.overall this is a must visit
