The visit includes a little outdoor walking (to see V2 and V1 rockets and the original train carriages used at the site) as well as the main exhibition space (3 floors of a very large building) and the original power plant building. There is really a lot of information to read (in German, Polish and English), videos and audio. At... More

Love WW2 history, so this was right up my alley. Very interesting exhibits. You'll have to plan a good 2-3 hours if you want to immerse yourself in the numerous exhibitions - plan extra time if you want to watch the movies. If you have nice weather, make sure to visit the observation deck at the top of the power... More

Having always been interested in the Apollo Space program I had to visit its roots! The person in the visitor centre initially sent me to the power station which I found only mildly interesting. The main rocket exhibit is much more interesting provided extensive background on liquid rocket research. Many original artifacts are on display with complete explanations in German/Polish/English.... More

The museum is really interesting and gives a fantastic overview about how advanced rocket science really was during WWII. It also shows how the technology from then affected the space race in the 50'ties and 60'ties. Well worth a visit.

This was a place I had mixed feelings about visiting, aware not only of the history of this site, but the evil also associated behind it. Make sure you take the audio guide, and take on board the message that is being given out that rocketry is there for peace and not war. Having wanted to visit here for a... More

It's a very strange feeling to walk through places that once belonged to the best kept, secret and watched objects worldwide. Where hundreds of scientists and thousands of prisoners worked on research that actually started today's space exploration. Where they developed and produced well-known weapons V1 and V2, and might be working on other projects, of which today we have... More

The museum is fine and they tried to make the exhibition rooms special. Although there is a lot of information and a lot of reading involved. If you´re interested in the subject, it will be a nice experience. The area is quiet big and looks very empty. We didn´t found a café on the area, but a vending machine with... More

We visited this place on a hot day and it wasn't a disappointment. The museum its self is presented in English as well as other languages very informative and a must for any WW2 buff or who has an interest in rocket technology and ultimately space flight. The gift shop is well stocked and presented well.
