Katyń Museum is located in the southern part of the Warsaw Citadel and includes three historical buildings. The whole complex was designed as a park, with a symbolic Katyń Forest in the centre. The entrance is located at Brama Nowomiejska, on the continuation of Trakt Staromiejski, at the exit of Zakroczymska street. The main exposition is arranged on two levels of the Caponier – a historic fortification structure. The third building – the arcaded cannon stand with glazed arcades displays plaques with the names of the murdered officers.
