It's a tough place to visit, but amazing museum, with an important story to keep alive. One of several tough places to visit in this incredible city

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. The museum...More

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

A fascinating history of Polish resistance to German occupation. Alone among the Eastern Europeans, the POles NEVER cooperated en masse or officially

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

Great museum. So many exhibits, very realistic. I’m a history buff and knew a little bit about the polish suffering, but this museum really opened my eyes.

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

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
