Centralne Muzeum Jeńców Wojennych

High Five Museum (Muzeum na 5+)

Since May of 18th, The Central Museum of Prisoners-of-War is open for visitors. Let us remind that in our seat in Opole you can see the permanent exhibition The Site of National Remembrance in Łambinowice – a local, national, European heritage,  as well a new temporary exhibit High Five Museum (Muzeum na 5+). The latter exhibition is different than other previous ones – there is only presented one item: a wooden grandfather clock, made for us by former prisoners in 1984. Its prototype was created in Stalag II A Neubrandenburg, 1940.

The new exhibition focuses on that just one item to prompt to reflection on the essence of time, crucial both in everyday life of museum workers, but also in the experience of prisoners-of-war, for whom the time passing was a measure of their captivity and a presage of hope of freedom.

In Łambinowice, we present four exhibitions: In the German captivity, Prisoner-of-war camps in Lamsdorf/Łambinowice 1870–1945, Polish prisoners-of-war in the USSR and After the war. The Labor Camp in Łambinowice (1945–1946). You can visit the museum from Tuesday to Friday between 9.00-15.30, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10.00-18.00. The exhibitions in Opole are open to visit as always: from Monday to Friday between 8.00-16.00.

You are welcome to visit us!
