The camp, the mauseleum, the museum are shocking reminders of what happened to millions of people oppressed by the Nazi regime. I visited alone in a cold, snowy January day and saw only 2 other visitors. Aside from the horrors was the unexpected view of...More

This museum and the tour, I walked it, 5ks and 3 hours in snow and -2; you can drive but somehow walking it felt more like walking in past footsteps. I would recommend if you're fit and like the exercise. Informative and moving displays and...More

Did you know that you recently discovered from documents that 1/4 was liquidated in 3 months of 1942 from all 6,000,000 Jews killed during the Second World War? And there were these people from Lublin and other large and small cities of Poland, absolutely the...More

I strongly recommend everybody to visit this place. It’s not only educational for children but also for the adults to remember the criminalities of the Nazi during the WWII. The barracks are well preserved and maintained, you can see with your own eyes the gas...More

The speaks of everything. A chill goes through the backbone while walking the camp... jails....chemical showers... Felt terrible seeing the burnt shoes and letters from loved ones..... Only minus is no proper directions and facilities given to the place.

I've been to Lublin several times as part of personal Holocaust and WW2 research. Majdanek, for those who do not know, is perhaps the most educational of the camp sites in Poland. A little research on websites like HEART or the many others available will...More

Visiting was more powerful to me than visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau. Because Majdanek is less visited it felt to me that one can get closer to feeling the horror that was Nazi Germany's determination to rid the world of Jews and Poles. And if we are to...More

Free to enter, just like Aushcwitz. But buy something to help the cause! Allow 3 hours and wear comfy shoes. Easy to park near by. Equally as thought-provoking as any of the death camps and a great educational museum/memorial. Go!

I forgot to add.... get off at the second Majdanek stop. There are two. The second one puts you at the entrance. When you get off the bus, look across the street slightly to your right and you will see the return bus stop... More
