The Center occupies one room. The volunteers are friendly and accommodating. The admission is free, and there is a small gift shop. It was enjoyable to learn about the history of the Polish people.

This museum is small, free, air conditioned (many surrounding sights are not), and has items from a variety of influential Polish people, including Copernicus, Curie, St. John Paul II, Pulaski, etc. Other pieces show life in Poland and Poland in World War II.

You can make it through this free museum in a half hour. It is really only one large room, but has some nice Polish things for sale and has some interesting displays. Nothing amazing but nice for free.

Nice little museum. My husband is 1/4 Polish so he and the kids enjoyed looking at some of the exhibits. Takes about 10-15 minutes.

Nice to be able to see a bit of my Polish heritage in between visits to historic sites and local bites (of Philly Cheese steaks, pretzels and Italian Ice!) Very close to Independence Hall and Liberty Bell. Went with my mother quite a few years...More

While in Philly we stopped by the Polish American Cultural Center Museum great to see the historical past of the Polish ancestors of my wife.. and trace back some of the history. The historians will like it and Polish folks as well..

This is a very small museum. I found the info about the Polish involvement during world war 2 to be very interesting and informative. You can do the entire exhibit in 10 minutes.
