As it's name implies, the museum tells the history of the Warsaw Uprising. Plan on several hours here.

Worth it to get the audio guide for this museum. The movie, City in Ruins, is very short and we had a long wait in line so we listened to our audio guides and got a lot of history while we waited. The movie is not worth a long wait but was interesting to see the devastation of the city.... More

A poignant and very graphical review of the Warsaw uprising. There is a lot of material prepared in chronological order (but beware that the order of the stations is not very intuitive, the map they provide is a must in this case). Very interesting displays, all with English translations. Many, many photos and short films that describe this chapter in... More

The 3D film is not what we expect in the US but the other exhibits are extremely moving. Don't miss the items behind the black curtains.

This museum is a must see if you are visiting Warsaw - some excellent archived material. The recent addition of the archived film footage of the Warsaw uprising provides another dimension to Warsaw's history.

One cannot visit Warsaw without bearing witness to the devastating events of the Warsaw Uprising. For 63 days they fought to the best of their ability. Stalin's betrayal resulted in... well, go read the story! I witnessed people visibly moved by the more mature subject matter - children are prevented from seeing the more graphic imagery by well conceived and... More

This museum is well worth a visit. I wasn't sure what to expect from this museum, but very glad we visited. As other travellers have stated there is a bit of a lack of direction and trying to see everything in order is pretty much impossible but the content and style of the museum more than makes up for this....
