Transport connection to the Museum

Starting from 4th April, because of the redevelopment of the crossing of Droga Męczenników Majdanka with the streets Grabskiego and Sulisławicka, the access to the Museum from the centre of Lublin and in the opposite direction will be led through a diversion – through streets Dekutowskiego and Witosa. The traffic through Droga Męczenników Majdanka from the area of the redeveloped crossing to the Museum is reserved only for means of public transport and the neighbourhood citizens. The suggested diversion is presented on the following map: //www.majdanek.eu/media/files/news/911/remont-sulislawicka-grabskiego.jpg
