The museum is closed until October 2018 due to renovation. The website shows normal working hours and the English version doesn't work. Travelled half of the city for nothing.

A simple enough museum, done very well. It sits beside working rail lines which reminds of how ordinary a place it should have been.

A little out of the way, about a 20 min taxi ride from centre of Lodz. Not much else nearby so make sure you can get back easily.

The station is now turned into a small museum about the Lodz during the holocaust. The memorial and museum are great and definitely worth a visit.
