  • The building is ultra modern and very new. It traces the history of the Polish Jews, it's absolutely thrilling. We have 2 h 15 for the ride. The audio guide is essential! Without it no interest. Price 50 pln for entry and 20 for the audio guide. It's the best activity we did in Warsaw.

  • The whole family enjoyed this exhibition from the youngest, 6 years old, to the eldest 70 years old. The audio guides are excellent for telling the 1000 years detailed story. The exhibition trully get...  more »
  • A peculiar Museum for my taste, too sparse history of the middle ages. If you have ever been to Yad Vashem, you will feel no such sharp and troubling emotions, after visiting the history of Polish evrevv. All very locally, all Polish Jews, bad or good? Don't know, everyone wants to see eople create under your angle and the light closer to him. It seems to me it would be worth uslit' Exposition dedicated to the Shoah. Absolute advantage of the Museum is its modernity and nontriviality filing facts. Each visit to the Museum will interpret differently but go still stands.

  • A fantastic museum with a journey through history of the Polish Jews, from the origins in mediaeval times to present day. The main exhibition is really quite huge though, make sure you have ample time to enjoy.
  • I was not wiling to go there and see Holocaust and Auschwitz again and again however there is much more to it. First of all, beautiful building, fantastic exhibition . All in chronological order, easy to follow. I was positively surprised how much I learned about Jews their lifestyle, religion and about nation history. Museum is very interactive, modern and one of the best I have seen recently. Fantastic reproduction of Jewish street, synagog, music and anything which defines a Jewish lifestyle. Great and recommended to anyone.
  • Incredible museum. Well structured. Tonnes of information, and very interactive. It's a must see when in Warsaw.
  • Really big. You need like 4 hours to see everything. Very interesting. Good price. Discounts for students. Free of charge on Thursday.
  • One of the most important museums in Poland. Tells the history of Jews in the Country, with several items since ancient times, back on 10th Century. Special mention to its remarkable architecture, it was nominated the best museum in Europe, back in 2013. Take advantage of its interactivity, and reserve good part of a day to your visit. My mention goes to a 18th Century Sinagoge replica, but I invite you to pay a visit, and share yours.
