Quite well done museum with helpful staff. Lots of information and artifacts. Displays are in former cells. We went on a Thursday which was free, not sure about admissions on other days.
We walked all the time while in Warsaw but the walk from the uprising museum to here took us past sex shops and some dubious clubs. We did cross the ghetto wall markers though so that was a bonus! The prison was only a block from several sex shops but it was a busy main road so probably ok. Not... 更多
Having visited the Gestapo H.Q. in the morning, we wanted to visit the prison museum as well, although they are not close to each other so be sure to plan your route. Total entry to the two sites is just eight zloty. There is almost too much to take in here, as the exhibits and explanations are extensive, but for... 更多

Such an emotional place to visit. Almost all of the rooms are in Polish, german and english. The museum provides information on the prisoners there and even has items that were made by them whilst imprisoned there.

It is located in the remaining building of the Pawiak Prison which allows you to get a great insight of being locked up in horrific surroundings controlled by the cold-hearted and cruel SSR. Sadly, big parts of the stories from the imprisonment is only written in Polish. Hopefully... 更多
