This is a very small (less than an hour) museum that is nonetheless very moving. One can only imagine the horrors that went on here.

This is a place of sad memory with a small museum inside, which holds a lot of items belonging to the people who suffered and/or died here. There is plenty of backstory, as well as news clippings, propaganda posters and artwork. It's worth going to...More

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
