My son and I made the trip to the Museum and Stalag Luft III in May 2017.My father was a POW in this camp. I can't say enough praise for the dedication and knowledge of the museum staff..especially for the museum director Marek Lazarz. I was so moved that I was prompted to send some of my father's personal items to the museum.
Whether or not you have a personal connection to this camp doesn't matter. It is a tour that cannot be missed.

Marek, our English tour guide, was engaging and very knowledgeable. The museum is very well set up. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the museum. Thanks Marek for your enthusiasm! We, family of 3 (mum, dad and 11 year old son), thought the trip to the museum camp in Zagan, Poland, was well worth it!

We were part of a coach tour, I found the museum to be so interesting, seeing the remains of the camp and ‘Harry’ was just bringing the whole ‘great escape’ story to life.
We also stopped at the nearby cemetery.
Very moving.

The museum has added a number of artifacts that have been donated since I was last there. Just as good as it was. We then went to Harry in the woods about 1 mile away and also see where the resevoir was and also the hospital. Finally a visit to the memorial for the men that were shot by the Gestapo.
