This was a very poignant piece of history that is important to be remembered. Very reasonably priced, a walk from Warsaw Central and a little hard to find but VERY VERY worthwhile.

.....not the Museum itself, but the details of the horrors that one human could do to another. A very small museum, very sombre and very quiet. I went late afternoon and was the only person visiting, which made it even more thought provoking.

This is my first review of a Warsaw sight and the one that left the biggest impression. The cruelties that people can do to each other in the name of supremacy. The general Warsaw population lived in permanent terror for nearly six years with daily round ups and indiscriminate executions daily .One cannot even come near imagining daily life and... More

You walk through the entrance and sytraightaway your in the corridor with the cells where the brutal interrogations took place. You can imagine what the victims went though. A very informative tour for those not wise on the hisory. Some great exhibits showing the instruments of torture. It is not a well known attraction and can be tricky to find... More

Hard to find from the street and looks shut when you get there! Go in the main entrance of the Ministry of Education (large pillars) and you'll see a door on the left. Even if it looks shut try the door. Well worth a visit. No toilet

Well worth a visit for the interested. The museum tries to give an impression of the events that occurred there and in the main succeeds. Other reviewers describe the exhibits and how to find it. The last solitary cell is used as remembrance, for example Mjdanek and has flowers on the floor. I couldn't find any information there on the... More

Simply do not miss this museum. Like others have said it's a bit of a walk out of the town but worth the effort. We made the journey on a very cold February day and were so glad we did. We felt let down by the Uprising museum which, although very large and featuring lots of exhibits, was confusing and... More

having expereinced this it is good to remember what kind of ultimate bad people are able to conduct to other human beings. Huh! The museum was at the actual place and was the actual place of the gestapo integrations cells. The place was very authentic and impressive in it true story. It did not make you smily or chatty but,... More

This place is difficult to find, but stick with it by looking for the banner inside the educational place. Through the gates and just on the left. The interactive boards were good, we had visited auschwitz and had an idea of the type of cruelty that went on. Free on a Thursday but well worth making the effort to see... More

I am surprised at some people saying you can 'do' this in 20-30 minutes, we went on Saturday 24th January, it was about a 30 minute walk from the old town and easy to find. The people were helpful there, there is a short English guide you can buy and a film in English as you enter. (there is also... More
