Pawiak Prison Museum is small but there are a lot of interesting things to see, and almost everything has an English translation. Museum is free on Thursdays, otherwise it is only 10/5PLN so I would definitely recommend checking it out

On our way to the POLIN, we passed this museum. The art work surrounding it alone has such impact. It is torn and tattered like the Poles that were tortured inside. It is a must see.
