Gdańsk

Guardhouse Number 1

A small museum on Westerplatte adding further colour to the events of September 1939, housed inside the former Guardhouse from which the strategic defence of Westerplatte was conducted (albeit in a different location from where it originally stood). The two shells outside were fired from the SMS Schleswig-Holstein during the attack. The guardhouse is just a few small rooms so viewing the exhibition won't take long, but there are some interesting exhibits including equipment, uniforms and weapons from the time.
