  • In my opinion, everyone should visit this place one time. Very touching moments, especially a loud voice from the radio distraction you can Ciara ... greeting cards calendar is an excellent idea to go back to memories of your stay for many days.

  • one of the best made and opinion-making Museum in which I was. A very difficult subject shown in a very modern way. Everyone odwiedzajacy Warsaw should or even must see if you would like to understand what happened in Warsaw in 1944.

  • During my stay in Warsaw, I wanted to visit at least a museum. The choice fell on the Museum of the Warsaw Uprising. Note I would like to, that I am very interested in history and visits regularly such facilities in the country and abroad. The Museum of the Warsaw Uprising offered me three reasons that let me briefly consider, again returns to make right at the entrance. 1. too many visitors: Admittedly expect but in August. 2. no audio guide available: I wanted this due to the reviews here on TripAdvisor but necessarily, because it was indicated, that the Museum to the understanding requires either a guide or an audio guide. In my opinion you can not tons of visitors let and for keep obviously far too few audio guides. Ugly anecdote in passing: the really friendly Lady on the issue said it was hard to assess whether the next audio guides would be brought back in 5 or 20 minutes. I decided to wait a few minutes and have prominently posted me at the counter. A Polish visitor came shortly thereafter and probably received the same information. However 2 audio guides came back at that moment, that later were leave to arrived and not to me what quite annoyed me. 3. konzeptlose exhibition: and indeed I was then more or less kicked without audio-guide. The exhibition is so chastised that man has even bother properly to comply with the order. The crowds also ensured that I could see only the exhibits and explanations (only in Polish and English), where something happened less. Bottom line: Zero insight. Poorly and not sufficiently my rating is only as the idea for a Museum of this kind would be of course very good. I would finally like to mention two points: 1 totally abruptly at the end of the exhibition by current special units of the Polish Army in great detail reports including an exaggerated display of their weapons. That has here in my opinion No, especially since... 2.... many children on the road are what should be not allowed in my opinion. Neither the weapons nor the film contributions, which show clearly the shootings and bodies, are suitable for children's eyes. Because many parents obviously have no problem (it was even with pushchair on the way), an age limit should necessarily be introduced.

  • One of the best museums I've ever been to. Excellent exhibits that fully immerse you into the climate of the time. It does an exceptional job at recreating the emotions and mentality of varsavians during occupation. It is very moving. Highly recommend taking the audio tour for the full experience. Very well narrated. I recommend seeing this museum first when coming to Warsaw. The symbol of the Polish uprising can be seen everywhere in the city if you look carefully (usually followed by a little paragraph about someone who died there protecting Polish literature or culture during the war). You'll be able to appreciate how much history surrounds you with every step!
  • Amazing museum, a must visit when passing through or visiting Warsaw. Amazing artifacts and accounts laid out in an intriguing and insightful manner with interactive and creative displays throughout makes for a museum like no other. Must visit 5/5
  • Interesting museum. First the built outside resalable a military facility, inside the exhibition warms you up with sounds of the war; following 5 section explain many different aspect of the uprising in details with interactive, never boring, rooms. Recommend
  • Incredible museum depicting the Warsaw resistance to Nazi occupation. Air conditioned, locker rentals, very interactive and educational. You'll easily spend 3+ hours inside this multi-level venue.
  • A must for everyone visiting Warsaw. Fantastic museum, very multimedial and modern. You will be beamed back in time to learn about the Warsaw Uprising history. The heart beat sound that you hear when you enter is very moving and contributes to the atmosphere. Plan for 2 hours at the very least to learn and understand what the Germans did to the city of Warsaw and how the Poles fought the utopic but heroic fight against the occupier. Very special experience, very well worth a visit. The Museum can be crowded so plan ahead and buy your tickets online.

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.
