This museum is a dedication to, and indeed a memorial, to the events surrounding 16 December 1981, known as the 'Pacification of Wujek.' Shortly after Martial Law was declared in Poland on 13 December 1981 by General Wojciech Jaruzelski, workers at the famous Wujek mine went on strike and were immediately met with a brutal show of force, which left nine dead. The museum itself has one permanent exhibition - 'the Memorial Room of Wujek Coal-mine', and uniquely, the guides themselves are former workers of the mine that took part in the protest. English speaking guides are on offer, however, you must call in advance to arrange.
