Well worth a visit, the post office is both a museum and working post office. A brave salute to the 56 postal workers and 10 year old girl who fought bravely for 15 hours against the SS in WW2. Finally surrendering and then being executed.....More

This place is a must-see when visiting Gdansk. It is a historic place where heroic fights took place at the beginning of World War II.

This place is full of history. The audio guide is long but you can skip thru parts. Admission is very inexpensive and it is free on Mondays.

An extremely impressive monument to the Polish Post Office worker killed by Nazi forces. Unfortunately on the day of visiting (Tuesday) the museum itself had closed at 13.00 hrs

The building is iconic, the memorials are excellent, the history needs to be remembered and depicted, don't forget the courtyard sculptures. The exhibition in the building is accompanied by an audioguide which is far too long and detailed in its presentation and not necessarily about...More

We visited here during our recent trip to Gdansk. Admittedly, we knew next to nothing about the city's history prior to visiting and at first didn't appreciate how important the Post Office was. The audio guide was really informative and we found it really interesting....More

The museum tells a very important story, but the presentation is very boring. The audioguides takes about 70 min to complete but the big picture of what really happened is lost in between irrelevant and boring details in my opinion. Maybe suitable if you are...More
