Palmiry National Memorial and Museum is highly recommended as the forest outside Warsaw significantly ups the standard for how a small exhibit can pack a huge punch.

Reviews

It was a very educational day. I was so impressed with POLIN Museum. It has an incredible level of detail in every part of the exhibition and gives a very comprehensive guide over the history of Polish Jews. The tech stuff is spot on and the exhibits are great. Very very interesting. Treblinka on the other hand and Ghetto walk are chilling! I am not going to lie, I struggled to contain my tears while there, however I do not think this should put people off visiting. Yes, it is difficult. I cannot imagine what the victims felt but it is good to remember and honour these people.

POLIN Museum contains an incredible amount of information and is beautifully designed. Just amazing and not to be missed. I also enjoyed our guide for Ghetto walk and Treblinka. She was very sensitive to all nuances of difficult history. Great day in a sad way because of the topic. Thank you ITS Poland, as always you are the best.
