See the intact gas chambers and crematoria at Majdanek State Museum, the best-preserved example of the Holocaust death camp. The permanent collection features archival photographs and rare items, such as shoes of adults and children and the uniforms the prisoners had to wear. Pass through parts of the barracks and along watchtowers and sentry boxes. See the two monuments erected in 1969 in honor of the victims--the monument to struggle and martyrdom, and the mausoleum made of surface soil mixed with human ashes.

  • Good place to visit for anyone, free of charge and the whole tour should take you around 2-3 hours depending on your pace. Different feelings come to head. The mausoleum is especially moving.
  • An incredible and moving experience to visit this place. Give your self 2-3hrs to really walk around and read all the information as it really highlights the terrible things the SS did during that time here. It is just a bus ride out of the central city centre so easy to get to. Well worth a visit.
