Lots of things to do there :) Library, Museum, Coffee shop, Children Playground, rooms for big occasions to rent, free parking etc... Great for families or people who would like to know more about Second World War in Poland.

There are lockers available in the lobby, and they're decently sized as well. We stuck two backpacks and four coats in the smaller one.

Also bus number 100 stops here which goes from the tourist area in the old town, 3 times an hour :)
I remember being a young student in ireland during the 80's at the time hoping the movement would be successful so the Polish people could have the freedom they deserved. Kasia_cl Is this really your attitude to the sacrifices made on your behalf? How very sad.
