Be prepared to have your senses bombarded, feel a bit overwhelmed and see one or two things you wish you hadn't. Still, a really important museum to one of the most significant events in recent European history. A must-see attraction.

A very popular museum, dimly lit and a constant soundtrack of war. I found the layout rather confusing, it tells the story of the Warsaw uprising is a fragmented timeline. Lots of personal recollections to read. I think you get more of a sense of these tragic events rather than a detailed understanding of it.

I really wanted to see this museum. I liked the building and the atmosphere they had tried to create, but I found the layout confusing and didn't get a handle on the timeline. I think I might have enjoyed it more if I came with more knowledge of the history of Warsaw. I visited on a Sunday and got in... More

One of the best and most modern museums i've ecer been to. Illustrates the 1944 Warsaw Uprising with a graet combination of objects, illustrations, documents and reconstructions

Tells the history of warsaw through the uprising and the war. Is usually very busy so would recommend you get there early. Some of the things you see and read about are very harrowing, but it helps to give you a small understanding what the people of this city endured A must see in Warsaw

The museum follows modern curatorial practices of engaging visitors though a mix of personal witness accounts, historical details and contextualization. However the exposition suffers from a lack of a logical layout that would guide you through the exhibition without walking in circles - see my photo.

Poland suffered more than almost any other nation in the Second World War and this interactive museum is dedicated to its capital's awful traumas, and in particular the uprising of the people of Warsaw. Words can not express what this city and nation went through. This museum is both harrowing and a fantastic memorial to a terrible time. My only... More

Free entry on Sundays, would have been better to go and pay during the week. Very busy which made following the exhibit numbers very difficult. It is worth paying for the english translation hand set.
