Went here on Tuesday because we heard it was free. The audio is a must, easy to use. Bring some water with you as it is a 3/4 hours around it.

Really informative and interesting, we had the headset which i would say was essential to get the full benefit. The price was ok and it got us out of the cold weather for at least a couple of hours.

This museum was well laid out and very thorough in terms of information and exhibits-- we spent over 3 hours and still could have spent longer there!

You could spend all day in here. We spent about £12 for 2 tickets and audio guides (recommended). The layout is really well thought out and gives a really detailed presentation of WWII across many different countries, not just Poland. Touches on Gdansk’s role in...More

Well worth a visit for anyone interested in history. We particularly liked how there was a little bit about what was happening in different countries at the same time, so as to get the bigger picture of the war

Very interesting view of WW2, a different perspective from those I knew. Absorbing, we spent twice the time we thought we did.

World War 2 from origins to aftermath but presented from a different perspective to the way we are taught it at school. Away from the “great powers” struggle is a story that engulfed communities around the world. This modern museum takes you on a journey...More

Definitely worth a visit. Gdansk was pivotal in the starting of the Second World War and there’s definitely a rich history to learn about. Although sombre at times, the museum was very interesting to look around and is a must see for any history buff....More

Hello! You are lucky to be there on tuesday. It’s was grayed because it’s not possible to buy tickets. You save 23 PLN because it’s FREE admission on tuesdays. It's very popular, so try to be there early.

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
