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
We visited this museum after hearing about it and the story of the uprising on a walking tour.
The museum is close to the metro so is easily accessible, and the entry fee is pretty reasonable considering that the museum is very good.
You need at least 3 hours as the place is bigger than you think. The layout can be quite disorganised but bear with it. The area next to the entrance is busy and there is a lot to see in the form of pictures and...More
The museum tells the story of the Ill fated uprising during WW2 in chronological order and is a must for anybody interested in Warsaw's history under the. Nazis. Lots of hands on exhibits and the film of the extent of the destruction of Warsaw following...More
At times we felt as if we were part of the uprising as our guide gave a rousing account of the fighters and their fate.
It was a very busy Sunday, with hoards of locals and tourists escaping from the cold, and several times we...More
Our accommodation was within the old ghetto area which made this even more real. To think this was happening around 75 years ago. We decided to do it on our own without a guide and just wandered around the info boards and viewing the exhibits....More
As a history lover, I found this museum to be spectacular. This is a powerful museum, showing Varsovians’ hope, bravery, and pursuit for freedom. I knew about Poland's suffering during WWII, but this really showed the depth of their treatment. My friend and I went...More
Just got back from a short weekend, late friday to late sunday. Anyway, got some info for other travellers.

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
