The museum was undergoing some renovations, but even what we saw outdoors was moving. The station is small - just one old train and one small station building, with a few simple but impressive murals and plaques on the walls around it. Enough to move...More

The Museum is closed but it is possible to visit the station and area. It is a very moving experience.

The museum is closed until October 2018 due to renovation. The website shows normal working hours and the English version doesn't work. Travelled half of the city for nothing.

The station is now turned into a small museum about the Lodz during the holocaust. The memorial and museum are great and definitely worth a visit.
