Serving as the central building of the Polish Commonwealth for many centuries, this castle was rebuilt after it was dynamited by German troops after the Warsaw uprising, and has been rebuilt to recreate the original castle's 17th-century architecture and interiors.

Interesting to learn the Polish history. The castle was completely bombed out in WW II and had to be rebuilt. It is lovely and looks as it did before it was destroyed. We visited the last Sunday of the month and admission was free. Takes...More

Place destroyed in 100% in 1944 by German Nazis. Rose up from ashes after 1945.....It is beautiful place to spend afternoon and get amazed.... So much history, and rare historical landmarks rebuilded, to the smallest details, amazing painting, architecture structure. Must see while in there.

Just a few blocks from the main square, a very interesting visit to this castle, provided that most of it has been reconstructed, it brings you back to Poland's imperial times, look for the couple Rembrandts in the permanent collection!

The center point of any visit to Warsaw. Albeit, it requires some preparation and reading beforehand to have the experience the most enjoyable and informative.

Although recreated after the war, the selection of art is spectacular to say the least. The opulence of royal life is nicely portrayed.

Nothing special. Nothing unique. It has a very limited collection. The only upside was to observe the staff who were way too many and very much like they were at home in that museum...

The restoration work was impressive, as was the scale of the rooms and the artwork. The audio guide was informative but not too long, and there was plenty of space to enjoy and engage with the surroundings.

Yes, that's what i did and just like every other museum/castle in Warsaw, there were only few people in line.
