  • This museum is loud, chaotic and a maze. It’s so unclear where to go and what you’re reading, on top of that it was very busy in some areas and there is a constant background noise of bombs exploding....  more

  • Nice place to get a view of what happened in WW2 in the city of Warszawa. Stunning to see how the city and subsequently the country was thrown for the lions( in this case left in the hands of the Russians) by the English. And how the entire city was levelled and many people killed while all of this could have been prevented with a little bit of political courage.
  • Very good, though think of timings for avoid the large school groups on guided tours. Only disappointment was the non existent coffee shop. Stood around for 10 minutes but no one appeared. Its a very limited menu so suggest eating elsewhere. Still, very much worth the visit
  • A very interesting museum which in detail shows different aspects of the uprising. Interesting documentary videos and lots of additional materials to take home, including a day to day description of the 63 days of the uprising. The only pity is that this "calendar" in available only in Polish.
  • I got really emotional while visiting that museum. There are no words to describe it. Each visitor of Warsaw should definitely spend some time there. Taking under consideration what is going on in Ukraine right now, it's even more important to go there. It's like facing the naked truth about every war. Great atmosphere. Great audiovisual equipment. Really amazing. I totally loved it.
  • I'm not a very big fan of history in general, but this museum is simply amazing, interesting and very modern. I would recommend a visit to everybody: a local or a foreigner, to a history lover and to somebody like me, not very into it. The price for a visit is great + you can buy the tickets online.
