Private Tour: Warsaw City Sightseeing by Retro Fiat

223 reviews
There are few better ways to discover any city than with a personal driver/guide: cover more ground and in more depth than you could alone. For the peak of the Communist-era style, explore Warsaw in a Fiat 125p. Customize the tour to suit your interests but expect to check off key highlights: Old Town, New Town, and the Palace of Culture and Science.

This is a must while visiting Warsaw. It is amazing to see the fighting spirit of the people and what they endured during the war.

Very impressive and emotionally touching. Great collection and very well documented. One of the best WW2 museums I have ever been to.

Dropped in here as a few hours to spare and understand more about the Warsaw Uprising. Paid around 50 pzł and also had a hand held audio guide too. So started off and yes.. Very good. There is a lot to read and see too. Very well laid out and really there is so much here My only criticism is that some of the numbers on the audio do not correspond to the guide... So you need to be quite adaptable to this and run around a little.. Other thank that is well worth a visit 😉

This museum has done an outstanding job of creating visually striking displays and incorporating sound effects that make you feel “excited” as you walk through. The content, however, is very discombobulated and dense. Rather than focusing on the Warsaw Uprising, the majority of the museum is text-heavy overviews of the history of how WW II began, the conflicts that occurred throughout, and even the aftermath of the war as a whole – the same repetitive content you seem to find at most other WW II museums. Although the exhibits are in chronological order, the material is not really, so as you walk around you’re constantly jumping forwards and backwards through time with each display, making it impossible to assemble a sensible storyline in your head. Also, many of the exhibits don’t present a storyline at all – they just talk about dozens of individual Warsaw citizens who participated in WW II. So there is a lot of “Here is John. John was a barber, then he fought in this battalion. Then he was killed in action. And here is Ben. Ben liked to write poems. Then he wrote a newspaper article that said bad things about the Nazis and he was killed.” Perhaps this is the preferred cup of tea for some people, but I struggled to learn much from this museum and found myself mostly bored and confused about in which order I should be looking at the displays.

I was really excited to come to this museum as I think it is such an important part of the history here and was keen to learn more. Whilst there are some really interesting exhibits here, it's hard to follow in a linear fashion as the layout is very confusing and it isn't clear of the journey you are supposed to take around the various levels. Even some of the arrows showing the 'Direction of the tour' point to each other! This is a shame as some of the content was great. There also didn't seem to be much consideration towards social distancing either as there was no one-way system in place, although there was a temperature check on arrival. Easy to buy tickets online too. The rose garden is really beautiful so take a look at this on your way out.
