Amazing museum of the amazing story of Stalag Luft 111. Excellent displays, remodelled huts and guard towers. Able to walk the length of escape tunnel "Harry". What an extraordinary experience.

Just over a two hour car journey took my brother and I from the city of Wrocław to a truly awe inspiring place. I grew up watching the great escape and so I wanted to see the camp first-hand. Hugely recommend to get a guide to show you round. I sent an email and Marek came almost straight back to me saying how delighted he would be to walk us round the museum and show us where the tunnel Harry had been. We also got to see the memorial to the fifty which is located close to the station. Marek is kind, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable. I’ve seen the film more times than I can remember, read the book and also seen documentaries but what my brother and I learnt in the 3 hours or so was so much more. So many absorbing details to digest. Marek organises special functions for veterans and families of those men who were actually at the camp and also puts on events for the local children. So important! The story of the great escape needs to be told and Marek and co are the perfect people to do this. One of the most. If not the most interesting times I have ever spent at a museum. An important mention has to be about another daring escape. “The Wooden Horse” where three managed to escape back to Britain also from Stalag Luft and is spoken about at the Museum. A 1950 film well worth watching. Thank you so much to Marek and the team and I can’t wait to return when you have even more displays and information there. I urge young and old to go visit as soon as possible. You will be very glad you did.

Great museum, you find out more of the camp that was the basis for The Great Escape movie. Further, don't forget to drive 5 minutes down the road to the ACTUAL tunnel location and ruins.

My father had been a prisoner at S3 during 1944-5. Arriving just before the Great Escape he was evacuated in 1945 and finally freed later that year. I had always wanted to visit the camp and see where he had been and finally decided to do this, spurred on by a report from the man in Seat 61 who had made the trip by train from London and had given lots of useful tips like how to get out of the station at Zagan. I was joined by my husband and two teenage daughters. We flew to Berlin for a few days and then caught the train over the border to Zagan staying overnight is Zary before a quick ride to Zagan.

The museum is a little way from the station maybe a mile. We used the directions from seat 61 to get to the location of the camp and from there to walk onto the museum.

The camp itself is hidden in trees, you can see the ruins but it’s not always clear what you are looking at and then you come to the marker for tunnel Harry which dissects the road you’re walking. Where Harry began there are markers showing the foot print of the hut from which the tunnel ran. It was really big! Walking on a bit more into the woods there is something that looks like a swimming pool. We couldn’t really make sense of what we were seeing and so decided to carry in round to the museum which was probably a mile or so further on.

When we arrived at the museum we rang the bell and the lights went on and we were invited in. It was maybe £10 for us to enter and we were given a brief talk about what was in the museum. I mentioned to the chap that my father had been at the camp and produced a copy of my fathers log book from his time there. We looked through the log together and he pointed out some things I had not noticed and gave me some context. He pointed out the number of my dads hut, number 21. He then showed us into a room to watch a video of the history of Zagan and the camp. When we came out he said he had spoken to his manager Marek who was coming round to take us back to S3 and show where my dad had stayed.

What then happened was the most extraordinary experience, something that I will never forget. Armed with a map and his immense knowledge of the camp Marek walked us around the site I’d S3. We looked at the cooler, the fire pool, the laundry, the theatre, tunnel George, the toilet block and finally the remains of the hut where my dad had been. He took me down the ruins to the remains of the kitchen and bathroom and pointed out my dad’a room was next to these. Every question I had he answered and more. Then he took us round to the memorial and again shared his immense knowledge.

We spent about 2 hours with Marek in total. It was a day of my life that I will never forget because of the site itself but also the generosity and knowledge of Marek. The day before the widow of John Sturges had visited the museum, he directed the Great Escape, and Jeremy Clarkson et al had been there last summer to film the grand tour. It’s amazing that people are visiting this site and remembering what happened here.

The museum itself is quite small but it is packed full of relics from the site and maps showing all the camps including S8 which was located next to S3 and the museum is built within the footprint of this second camp. There are uniforms and a mock hut and watch tower. It absolutely is worth a visit.

I came away feeling I knew a lot more about a time of my dad’s life that he rarely spoke about. If you have a connection to the camp then you really should go. If you have an interest in history you should go. If you just want to listen to a man talk eloquently and knowledgeably about a time in history you should go. I can’t say enough about this place, simply you should go.

The three of us visited this museum in mid June 2023 and had a fantastic tour of the entire camp and surrounds from Marek, the museum director. The maintenance and development of the museum and camp is a passion of Marek's and his enthusiasm and knowledge is outstanding. Although we thought we already knew quite a bit about the 'Great Escape' from this camp in 1944, we learnt so much more from Marek. If you are interested in this period of history then a visit to the camp and museum is highly recommended. Thank you again Marek we hope that the 80th anniversary of the Great Escape next year is a success.

The museum is informative with some exhibits and a reconstruction of one of the prisoners huts. A lot of info re the 50 prisoners shot for trying to escape. Small entrance fee.
The Stalag luftt3 experiance is split into three separate entity's
1. The museum, as described.
2. The site of the camp that is actually a couple of miles away. Overgrown with vegetation and trees but tunnel Harry still marked out and information boards displayed. A lot of the foundations of the huts, solitary, swimming pool and theatre remain and you get a good perspective of the size of the camp. What was apparent was the exit point of tunnel Harry and its proximity to a lookout tower. As depicted in The Great Escape the tunnel was about seven meters short.
Well worth the visit. Although not at this camp my late father was a POW for most of the war in Stalg XXB Midland Group at one stage.
3 There is a memorial to the prisoners who died at Stalg lufft3. This is at anther location about 1.5 miles away. Worth a visit to pay your respects.
We stayed in Zagen and had a taxi out to the museum. We then walked to Harry and the memorial and back to Zagen. Total walk 8 miles in a very warm day. But it was worth it.
You will need local currency for the museum entrance.

Came on a visit with a military academy (my views are my own). A small but very informative museum and a place to feel the presence of the POWs and the traces of the camps in the surrounding area. Really well run, the museum’s Director Marek is passionate about his subject and was a wonderful guide. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing tour with Marek, who was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the camp, as well as hugely generous with his time. The camp is a fantastically preserved setting with a great museum, replica hut and original features- definitely worth a visit!

Without a doubt worth the time and effort to visit! We had a first class tour given to us by Marek his enthusiasm and knowledge about the camp and the escape come through loud and clear during his presentation. Take your time when you visit the museum there is a huge amount of information available and very well presented.

Anyone who enjoyed the movie “The Great Escape” will appreciate this museum, but as a history buff who’s harbored an interest in this subject for decades, I found it fascinating. Marek Lazarz, the man in charge of the museum, leads visitors on tours and enthusiastically offers the sort of insights one would expect to hear from a young history scholar. It’s not essential, but let me suggest reading one of the many books on the escape before visiting the museum; although I’d previously read two books on the subject, reading another book a few days before my visit refreshed my memory and enhanced the experience. Give yourself about 90 minutes to tour the museum and the site of the escape, which are about a mile apart. Visiting this site fulfilled a boyhood dream for me, so perhaps I’m a little biased. But I’ll never forget this place, and I’ll always feel indebted to Marek Lazarz for generously sharing his time and expertise.
