The place is located very far from the city , the surroundings , thought , are really beautiful . The entrance fee is cheap , but I do not find anything special and significant to visit inside .

A bit retro but great place to visit when You have 6 or 96 years. It will be renovated this year and become the most modern object in Europe

Great place to visit! You can request an English language session- it costs 240 zloty ( approximately £48) for a group. Amazing!

The place is a must to visit while you are in Katowice. All is fine except- the language! All info is JUST in Polish! Would be happy to understand the things the spokesman were telling the time of the presentation..
