This musuem won several architectural awards for design but the entrance is hard to find - look for a plain metal door on the side of the building. Entrance is free and there are restrooms but no food service in the museum. The displays are interactive with a small collection of artifacts; we recommend using a free audioguide (in English) to get the most out of the museum. The museum is new since December 2005, and overlooks the open fields where the prisoner barracks were located.
Most of the staff speak English and are willing to arrange tours for groups.
