Christopher was a wonderful guide. He was very informative, patient with all of our questions and knowledgeable. He met us on time....only glitch was he was at the front door of the hotel, we were on a bench outside the front door. Perhaps the guide could have a lanyard or something to help us find him. Maybe we should have had a flower in our lapel or something!! :). Christopher even called a taxi for us and waited to make sure the driver knew exactly where to drop us off. All in all, well worth the cost and the time spent.

This museum is one of the best we have ever visited. We booked a private tour, which we recommend for anyone wanting the best experience. The museum is very large and so many things to see and learn about. Our guide Elvira was very good, knowledgeable and informative and made the experience even better. She could answer all of our questions and gave us very good insight of the history.

That was really a great tour. We had two exciting, instructive and entertaining hours with our guide. (Stanislaw) He was very committed, made the tour exciting and varied so that there was no boredom. We can only recommend this experience, it was very nice and will be remembered for a long time.

My guide Elwira was very knowledgeable. She took time to explain the museum and its parts. I really enjoyed my experience. The only comment that I had was the cost of it was way to much at over 500zł. It cost as much as my whole weekend in Gdańsk . I thought I was paying 1/2 of that.

Perfect to not see the museum in passing and learn more about the events, very friendly guide, recommended!
