This tiny exhibit is tucked away in a courtyard so unless you are paying attention, you might just end up walking straight past it. The place is small and there's only couple rooms to see, with interactive displays to tell the story behind why the...More

One of the best finds for Warsaw. It’s something I knew very little about, and I feel the lives of those tortured here should be more talked about. I felt a very odd sickness in my stomach walking around, knowing the place looked exactly the...More

Very sad history and very professional museum staff. The cells and descriptions and tour and the look of this place is very heavy. Recommended.

Though really small compared to most other museums, we spent...More

The museum is the former command building of the Nazi police. The museum presents in small detail the martyrdom borne here by Polish prisoners. Impressive

I came out of here feeling very sad after hearing and reading about the most horrific acts committed by the Nazis. It is a reminder of how evil humans can be.

This is a must see in Warsaw. I’ve seen many places that have touched (hurt) my heart in Poland, a place that had endured so much in its past, but this place is right up there with Auschwitz-Burkenau, it will affect you so deeply and...More

This small museum really packs a punch. The gestapo headquarters in Warsaw where extreme torture and brutality took place. People waited in "tramlines" in rooms to be interrogated/tortured, the screams of those being tortured masked by loud music, guards marching outside. Ten cells lined a...More

Sorry, not sure but I went early/mid afternoon and it was open. Rather hard to find. I had to ring a bell for entry, like at a private residence.

My hotel was nearby so I just walked. The bus system in Warsaw is very efficient though so I'd recommend you investigate that.
