The Warsaw Rising Museum was opened on the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of fighting in Warsaw. The Museum is a tribute of Warsaw’s residents to those who fought and died for independent Poland and its free capital. The exhibition depicts...more

Out of the city I wouldn’t have known of this museum if a local hadn’t recommended it. Very modern, lots crammed in, lots to see, loads of stories and really interesting. I got a little lost on the correct route round but other than that...More
One of the best museums that i have ever visited. This is definitely a must visit if you are visiting Warsaw. It shows the heroes of the Warsaw Uprising organized by the Polish underground resistance during WW2. It is interactive museum that guides you through...More
We visited during Sunday when the entrance is free, so it was a bit overcrowded, as expected. I don't know who designed the museums in Warsaw, but they are among the best ones in Europe. This museum is very interactive and actually the visitor is...More
The visit was very impressive but we had faced some routes confusion. Although we used the earphones for explanations it seems confusing to follow through the events. The ghetto uprising was mentioned but in a very law volume.
The museum was created as a commemoration of one of the saddest periods in Warsaw history. It turned out to be a disappointment. Great appreciation for assembling a huge amount of information, documents and artefacts. The layout, however, is quite confusing, especially for younger generations....More
The museum is good, there is a lot to see and read, but come well rested because otherwise you won't really get into it and understand it. There are several floors of exibit and you need around 2 hours.
This museum is amazing. I liked a lot that it is interactive. You can use Morse code to communicate. There are leaflets to take with you, even one printed by a machine that was used during the days of WW2 by polish insurgents.
Warsaw Uprising Museum is one of the modern museums - where you can touch a lot of things, many expositions are interactive, and it's all in a few languages (though I can't remember exactly which ones aside from English) and you don't just walk by...More
Just got back from a short weekend, late friday to late sunday. Anyway, got some info for other travellers. Took a taxi from the airport to Sheraton Hotel, cost 57 Zloty, it was at midnight, maybe more expensive. From the central to the airport it cost 44 Zloty. Both was with ELE TAXI. It taxi-meter starts with 8 Zloty. The Uprising Museum and Pawiak Prison, was free entrance on sunday, dont know if its every sunday though. The Uprising museum takes about 2-3h to go through, ...More

Thank you for the feedback! Did you enjoy your short trip? What did you like/dislike? Just for your information: taxi prices are indeed higher late at night and on Sundays. Both prices seem a little to high to me, but it's probably not rip- off but traffic and time related.
Trip review 8 days in Warsaw/Krakow (3 Replies)
I just returned from my trip and wanted to post here as a way of giving back to all of the people who had posted and helped me plan my trip. The Museum of the Warsaw Uprising was fantastic. That alone made the trip to Warsaw worthwhile. I also saw the Lajinskie (spelling?) and Wilanow (spelling?) Palaces. They were interesting and the woods surrounding Lajinskie were awesome but if it weren't for the Uprising Museum I think the trip to Warsaw would have been mediocre. However, the food,...More

I've tried to work out how to get to the museum from the hotel I am staying in but I'm struggling, can anyone tell me which buses or tram to use.

It's an easy journey. According to Google maps it is only a 9 minute walk (about half a mile). You can take a tram for part of the journey but it is really that close. This is the link for the journey....More
