Mausoleum of Struggle and Martyrdom, Warsaw

4.2
#10 of 35 in Museums in Warsaw
A haunting reminder of the Nazi Gestapo's presence, Mausoleum of Struggle and Martyrdom focuses on individual stories of victims. Each cell is an exhibit that details the treatment of the prisoners there. This is accompanied by video installations or information panels in English. Some of the images displayed may be disturbing for young children, so use caution when touring with the family. It is a small space, but each display is packed with information.

  • A very small museum with a low entry (10pln/adult). Awesome to visit a real place where World War II really took place. Significantly.

  • The Museum is not especially large but gives a strong impression. Very touching to be there so many assaults took place on the Polish people during World War II. The arrangement is to go around among cells where suspects from the Polish resistance movement. We were there in the middle of the day but it was still uncomfortable to be there. It was a pity was that some terminals didn't work and it was so small, would have liked to have seen more.

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
