A must for people interested in WW II
Jul 2020
You can get there by public transport using bus 86E (the E is important) There are not so many buses so best check before you go. The website jakdojade.pl is very useful for this and other trips you want to make using bus or tram in Poland.
At the museum everything is in Polish, but you can buy a booklet for PLN in English.
If you have the chance, watch the documentary made by National Geographic about this place.
Beware that you only see the buildings, all the rest was taken by the Red Army and transported to Russia.

Hidden gem
Feb 2020
It is one of less known attractions in Bydgoszcz but definitely one of the most interesting! It presents the history of the region during World War II. It is a sad page of the history but the important one anyway. The sightseeing is nicely organised, takes over 2h. I recommend taking a guide, they know so many interesting stories. The easiest way to come here is to go by car, but there are also some buses available in the walking distance.

Off the beaten track

Considering 30% of all ammunition used in the Russian Front was produced here, it is worth a visit.
Start with the Nitro production area, up the mound to the left hand side of the museum.
It was purposely built to deflect explosions.
Labour used was from barracks on site and Koronowo Hard Labour Prison. Including my late Uncle who worked here in 1942.......

Horrable place with a sad history
Aug 2019
We not expected a lot for this place, but we heard a lot about it.
How can a man create such a fate for a man ... no words...

We feel sorry for You and Others, who lost loved ones heres in this Nazi Camp... 'cause that was a camp.
We gave U 5 on 5... You know what... for guide and a place like a place.

YOU MUST VISITET THIS MUSEUM! IS AMAZING AND HORRABLE IN THE SAME TIME!

Out the Way But if you like History....

A good 40mins drive from Bydgoszcz, Tours or text not available in English yet but I found this place to be vast & very interesting even without the added Translation for my wife. A long walk but worth every step.

This historic place is well worth a visit.
For a generation that grew up with history or relatives in the 2nd world war this is a reality check. This place in Poland hits home what people went through and it was a case of had too not want too.
All I will say on the negative side is that should you not be going with a guided tour they could have audio language tapes. Only had a paper print of each section. Still worth the visit.

You have to have a lot of time going there !

If you are interested in World War II Exploseum is a must ! But take care: It takes long time from the city center with the tram and a bus - uo to an hour. In a car probably less - but it´s outside the city amd the close for entrance an hour before the time they close the area.
One problem more: Most texts are only in Polish - you have to know a lot about the history before you go there.

Excellent way to spend your saturday

The museum is located on the outskirts of the city and the old, war weapon factory. It was made with the visitor in mind, you can travel whole route without a guide and special assistance. The price is very low for what the museum offers. Highly recommended with friends or family.

Great for history buffs

Being a student of history, science, WWII, I found this place interesting. Most of the information is only in Polish, and our friend got tired of translating for us. That being said, you still get a good sense of history.
