Opening hours in the Auschwitz Museum


The Museum is open every day with the exception of 1 January, 25 December and Easter Sunday. There may be inconveniences on 27 January – the anniversary of the liberation of the camp – and during the March of the Living – date varies, usually late April.

The museum is open to visitors at the following times:

8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. in December, January and February
8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in March and November
8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. in April and October
8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. in May and September
8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. w June, July and August

Because the museum is visited by some 1.5 million people a year, it can be very crowded in the high season, and bottlenecks form on staircases in the blocks that are open to visitors, and in the exhibition rooms. Particularly oversubscribed tour start times, when especially large numbers of tourists are arriving, are 10.00 a.m. – 12.00 p.m. and 3.00 – 5.00. p.m. So if you want to be able to focus on your tour of the museum in peace rather than be hurried along by your guide and other visitors, in the high season (from 01 April to 31 October) start your tour before 10.00 a.m. – the earlier the better – or in the afternoon, after 2.00 p.m. Organised groups have to use the services of a guide to visit the museum.
