It's really great and outsanding museum that gives you a look into the rising of Polish people from the start of WW II. Heartbeat is great allegory.

This ought to be a world class museum. It gets close. Very impressive displays and interaction, but confusing layout where the designer's eye for a wow factor overtook managing an interesting and impressive story. The observation tower was closed on my visit with no explanation. Cafe tucked away a little on an upper floor but with a good theme linked... More

full of children. i am glad they see the events, however the brutality and the german dirliwinger rona and kaminski brigades are passed over. i peronally am very happy the polish children see this but it is a crime that is hard to see from this museum

Having been to the brilliant POLIN the previous day, this museum was a bit of a let-down. I personally found the exhibition gimmicky and difficult to follow.

Even if you have a good knowledge of what happened during world war 2 in warsaw. This Is a must see for all ages but beware there is some very distressing film footage and photos, all are signed so you can manage with younger children. It is very well fine and a must see even for a short one hour... More

The Warsaw Uprising of 1944 was an attempt to break the hold the Nazi's had on the city. The museum focuses on the resistance movement leaders and participants who gave a valiant effort but did not succeed. Worth a couple of hours for sure!

The most wonderful attraction in Warsaw. Free on Sundays from 10am to 6pm. 1- Watch 3D movie in the small cinema there. 2- put your ears on the wall just after the entrance to hear the 8 minutes of the Warsaw sounds in WW2. 3- Find the picture of Władysław Szpilman (the pianist) under the broken window.

This museum, established by Lech Kaczynski during his earlier term as Mayor of Warsaw (better known as late President of Poland, who tragically died in the so called "Presidential Plane crash" in Smolensk (Russia) on April 10, 2010). The museum not only allows you to experience in person the Polish painful and tragic history, but also give you an in-depth... More

Fascinating and profoundly moving attraction as it explains the personal story of those involved in the uprising and the Nazi attitude to Poland and why so much of it was destroyed by them. The english interpretation in it is so good you think it was an english attraction. You need to allow yourself two hours visit as I had only... More

Really didn't know much about the Polish uprising but we were recommended it from a taxi driver while in the city. After visiting we learned so much about the history of the city and the people and it explains how the city is what it is now.
