  • This is an exceptional museum which tells the story of the people of Warsaw who rose up in arms against the German occupiers on August 1, 1944. Sadly, little outside support was receive and the...  more »
  • We visited the museum on Sunday - we didn’t know it would be so packed, but probably it was because Sundays are free of charge. Nevertheless, the exhibits and the interior design are amazing. You can....  more »
  • A very atmospheric Museum that goes a long war towards recreating what happened here in 1944. I would certainly recommend a bait and the price is very reasonable.  more »

  • A must-visit in Warsaw, or even Poland. The museum is well-designed, authentically displayed the history of the rising of Warsaw and wartime life. I was immersed in the atmosphere of sadness, hopelessness, and bright of humanity multiple times during my visiting. I highly recommend whomever spends time in Warsaw to come to this museum and take a deep understand about this unforgettable and significantly meaningful memory of Warsaw, Poland. Love this place!
  • Outstanding! Well worth a visit and the audio guides are definitely worth it. It seems a little wayward as some of the numbers are a bit out of order but once you work out which way to go it's excellent. Highly recommended!
  • Really good museum explaining the history of Warsaw. If you are in Warsaw and want to know more about the city then this museum is a must. It’s not very expensive to get in. You can’t take rucksacks in so make sure you have coins for the lockers.
  • The museum displays a lot of details particularly in the form of long texts which makes it overwhelming for visitors to follow. The audio guide too gives long descriptions at every point, making it difficult to get even an overview of the sequence of events. Short summaries of the different phases of the uprising and interactive displays or quizzes would make the learning experience better. Some directions (arrow heads) would make it easier to orient oneself inside the museum, particularly with some location point numbers being missing.
  • An amazing museum about the 63 days of uprising. The content is great but the layout is SHOCKING. Good luck following it 😂 Hint: the second segment is 2 floors up and don't forget to see the basement which has no directions to it 😂 MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THE FILM THOUGH. You will get more out of the film than you will from the rest of the museum I think. I loved the film.
