ATTRACTIONS FOR THE REOPENING OF THE MUSEUM OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR IN GDAŃSK

On Friday, 5th February, after an almost three-month-long break, the Museum of the Second World War in Gdańsk will reopen to the public. Those who decide to visit us in the coming days can expect special attractions.

Also on Friday (5th February) a new exhibit in the “Entering History” series will be presented. This time, on level -1 of the Museum, you will be able to see a special item related to one of the fallen defenders of Westerplatte whose remains were found during archaeological research conducted on the site of the historic Military Transit Depot in autumn 2019.

After visiting our exhibitions we invite you to stop by the museum shop on level -3, where from Friday to Sunday (5th - 7th February) there will be a 20% discount on all the products available in the shop. In addition, we have prepared new gadget series for our visitors (also available in the shop at a reduced price). Come and visit us.
