“One of the best WWII museums ”

Museum of the Second World War (Muzeum II Wojny Swiatowej)
Ranked #2 of 196 things to do in Gdansk
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 4, 2018 via mobile

I’ve been travelling around Europe for quite a few months now and found this museum to be one of the most informative on the subject. There was a large focus on the buildup and how the war started and also on post war rebuilding. Some very good audio visual exhibits and some very interesting artefacts also. Overall a very worthwhile visit.

Amazing museum with so much information. Thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting Gdansk. I recommend you spend at least 2-3 hours here as there is so much to see and interact with. Only problem is there is limited seating in the museum, so wear comfy shoes as you are always on your feet.

Wow! It's huge! I didn't expect that. 5 hours of walking and still I need more. One visit it's not enough - if You want to know some issues with details, You should come back. It's very spectacular Museum - this archtecture, this atmosphere... I recommend this exhibition for everyone in a whole World - for teenagers especially - You should visit this place and feel it!

Having previously visited the horrors of Auschwitz, We did not think we could learn more of the horrors that went on I WWII So be ready to learn some more. How can one say that they enjoyed this I do not know. But it was an experience that we should understand what happened.
