Lot of great detail and exhibits about the uprising, the stories etc. Only complaint was I went on a Saturday and was quite crowded and some spaces are quite confining....wish I went on a weekday. Also bought ticket for 3D movie but wait was too long. They should sell time stamped tickets for it

You need a half day to do this museum justice. There are numerous exhibits to read - most are in English and two films to watch, one of which you may have to queue for as it is only a tiny cinema.It shows the flattening of the city after the uprising and it is difficult to imagine how it was...

Before I visited Poland, I knew very little about what these people went through at the hands of the Nazi's! This museum is an excellent attraction, informative and lots of displays. Various items, weapons etc left from the war. I learned so much from this visit. Worth a look for sure!

I went on Sunday and it was free entrance. This museum is pretty big and very very informative. The best part is that they used several audio recordings, sounds from the uprising in several rooms. I totally enjoyed and it definitely shows the spirit of poles.

I have a new found respect for how resilient the Poles were that fought in WWII attempting to save Warsaw and ultimately Poland from Soviet rule.

I don't think a lot of people know too much about the Warsaw uprising and so it was very enlightening. You have to be interested in WW II history to have it be of value to you.

There are many disturbing scenes in this museum. We are constantly reminded of the atrocities of war, but there is also a light here. That light comes in the heroic tales of the people, some ordinary citizens who went to extraordinary measures during a time of great hardship to throw of the yoke of oppression. This museum was recommended to... More

I know I read other reviews with the word harrowing but it's the only word that comes to me! If you visit Warsaw you would never know its history walking around (we walked for 12 hours) until you go to this museum! It is so brilliantly /artistically laid out and interactive and where there are graphic videos or photos they... More

In my opinion, this is perfect museum. Firstly, even people who were never really interested in history will be able to gain a lot of now knoweledge there. Secondly, nobody will get bored in this museum. It's really modern and interactive. Of course it's a museum of a tragedy and I think that every single person should remember about this... More
