The former Nazi concentration camp in Stutthof was turned into a historical museum in 1962. Since that time the popularity of tours from Gdansk to Stutthof museum has been steadily rising.
The Museum examines, restores and shares original camp objects and collections of archive information. Its main goal is to present historical and reliable information and to preserve the memory of the camp victims. It features plenty of engaging exhibitions and video presentations. Although much of historical scripts about the camp was lost during the camp liquidation, there are still many crucial documents and proofs of its brutal activities during the world war II. Many of such documents were found in ditches near the camp, left there by escaping SS officers. They were collected by the Soviet Army and then sent to Polish authorities. Due to that fact, today, one can find as much as 125 meters of original archives in the museum.
During our Stutthof concentration camp tour you’ll familiarize with its history, how and why it was created and what impact it had on different war events in Poland. Historical facts explained by a professional guide will also include horrifying stories of prisoners treatment, transports and extermination inside the camps in Stutthof. There are several camp buildings in the museum that have been adopted for museum exhibitions. For example, there is a cinema in the former main headquarters of Nazi officers. In some of the buildings you can find video footage, everyday objects, illegally smuggled objects, personal letters and many works of art made by prisoners including drawings, portraits, coffers or rings.
Following a private guide, you will visit former prisoners barracks and find out how difficult it was for inmates to live there. They were struggling with immanent hunger, diseases, extremely hard work and inhumane punishments everyday. You’ll see how their beds and clothes looked like and how little space they had inside barracks. Finally, you’ll discover the most terrifying objects of the camp which are gas chamber and cremation ovens.
One of the most interesting objects in the museum is a large maquette presenting the original outlook of the camp as it looked just after it was build. During Stutthof concentration camp tour, you’ll also see the Monument to the Camp Victims, which constitutes the most important memorial object in the museum. It’s a place where visitors can pay tribute to all victims of atrocious crimes committed by Germans.
