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.

It is closed on Tuesday. We went on Sunday and that is a free admission day, so get there early if you go on that day, and I advise to rent the audio guide.

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
