“HARROWING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2011

Small but very moving. A disturbing insight into the workings of the Gestapo and its brutal and sadistic treatment of ordinary Poles. A MUST SEE.

“Very Moving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2011

This is one of those places that stick with you. The facility is maintained as it was during WW2 and Germany rule. It is a somber and eerie place.

“Very interesting but sad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2011

I visisted the Gestapo HQ museum on my trip. It's close to Lazienki Park. The museum is well done but very sad. I do recommend visiting here and Pawiak prison.

“Sobering Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2011

I found out about this muesum from Trip Advisor. From the outside you would never guess the horrors which went on here, which i guess is the point. A sobering important visit for anyone visiting Warsaw.
