  • The Museum impressed me a huge impression, as probably the most visitors. Surely there is a place in which zabrałabym a small child, but the teenager has the opportunity to learn a lot about the history of the uprising and World War II, feel the atmosphere of those difficult days and although partially understand what and what purpose was the dedication of people involved in the uprising. Collected souvenirs, photos and other materials from inception, and exposed the entire organization, was amazing Museum, presentation of events they are doing an amazing atmosphere. Great place to come back.

  • I visited this museum my first time in Warsaw. It was a memorable visit because I got caught in a downpour on my way home, which matched my mood afterwards. One of the best museums I have visited rece...  more »

  • Excellent and very moving. Great use of an old building that was once a power station. Cheap admission and free on a Sunday. Cafe very authentic and atmospheric. Lovely cakes.
  • Interesting and well designed museum in central Warsaw. It's huge so plan at least 2 hours to visit. Can be a bit overwhelming due to the size and the grim nature of the subject. It's an important story to understand though. Don't miss the 3D flight over post-uprising Warsaw.
  • Definitely recommended. It's an extensive exhibition, covering the full history and the aftermath of the Warsaw Uprising. The parts of the uprising are covered a bit unevenly. The second half of the uprising is covered much more extensively than the first, and it feels like it could be somewhat shorter. You can spend anything from 3h to 5h or more in the museum, depending on your information apetite. 3h is probably the minimum time needed to appreciate the exhibition. Some of the routing around the museum wasn't clear. You have numbered stops that you can follow in sequence. I missed some of them I think. The museum offers audio guides in many languages. The staff will set the audio guide to the language you prefer, but I fiddled with it a bit and figured out how to switch languages. Fun!
  • Interesting museum. I was forced to use a locker (which I have no issues with) but I didn't have the correct coin. Since I was travelling by myself, I was told to leave my bag outside and go to the gift shop to get change as the ticket counter would not give me change for the lockers.
  • I've been to dozens of museums around Europe and this one is easily top 3. A must see if you are in warsaw. The 3D fly over of the ruins of the city was my favorite part.
