  • Very well detailed. One of the best museums I've ever been with a lot of interactive applications. It is both intense and respectful for the history. My only but would be that sometimes there's even too much information. If you want to pass through it lightly, you'll miss many things. Would need half a day at least to cover everything.
  • One of the newest museums in Warsaw. It is dedicated to Warsaw Uprising in 1944 and tells the story of 63 days of resistance. It is very well organized place but of course topic is not funny. The route guides you through the time and tells the story how the fights evolved. It is well communicated with the city and you can use subway M2 line and make a short walk.
  • Very interesting museum detailing the story of the 1944 Warsaw uprising. Well worth a visit when visiting the city. There's lots to see so make sure you have a few hours to spare if you plan on reading most of the information.
  • Extremely confusing layout. Difficult to read bits and pieces of information. No overview of historical context at the beginning. Ended up reading a Wikipedia article for some clarity. Too much focus on making museum look pretty rather than actually educating visitors.
  • Great interactive insight about the uprising. You need some time to go through it all though, and rent one of the audio devices if you would like to know more than just reading what is written on the wall. Sunday entry if free of charge.

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.
