A conflict that claimed the lives of an estimated 55 million people is a both a huge and complicated story to tell. We invite you to Westerplatte Peninsula, the place and memory site where everything started. Then, we will take you to show you the darkest page of human kind which is Nazi German Concentration Camp Museum Stutthof and also cemetery. We will finish our journey to the past in the modern, multi media museum of WWII in Gdańsk, one of the most impressive WWII exhibitions in the world.

Reviews

It is a hard journey and hard topic. Still it is worth taking. I advice it to everyone. It teaches tolerance and immunes against racism for a lifetime. WWII Museum in Gdansk is the best war museum I've been to. It has exhibitions about how the Polish people suffered at the hands of both Nazis and Soviets. Presented very well with explanations in English as well as an audio guide. Sad, interesting, haunting, exhausting, fascinating all come to mind.
Anna
Enjoyable in a sad way. Highly recommended and worthwhile. WWII Museum is so interesting that I would love to come back again. Contrary to other war museums these ones concentrate rather on civilians than soldiers. There are relatively few objects but an excellent narrative about misery of life during last war. I was really stunned with the expositions.
