What a fabulous museum! It provides great insight into the oppression of the former Soviet bloc and into the courage of the Polish people in their fight for freedom. A cautionary tale for everyone today.

One for those interested in recent history. Excellent retrospection of the communist era in Poland and the Solidarity movement. Brought back a lot of childhood memories. Don't miss the views of the shipyard from their roof terrace.
