The military museum is well worth a visit. It cost only £6 for two of us to go inside, where we saw masses of armour and medieval waepons. Many European battles, perhaps not familiar to us Brits, were depicted, The Battle of Vienna was the most famous. Rooms also depicted the German invasion of 1939 and others showed Poland's participation in WW2 by land, sea and air. All interesting stuff, although English commentary and signs were a little ad hoc. On a personal note, I thought that the large amount of hardware outside was just as interesting. Well worth looking around the grounds alone, if you are short of time.

This is like a park with tanks and airplanes. It is a perfect way to satisfy both the nature-lover and the military buff. The BEST part is that entrance is free.
The museum is within walking distance of the central area near the Palace of Culture and Science.
The exhibits are well-displayed. The information is provided in Polish and English.
There is a second, lower level that has stone railings and stairways with overgrown plants.
I enjoyed my visit. It was nice to spend a pretty morning outside. My husband was impressed with the variety of military equipment on display.

Great way to spend a few hours in Warsaw. The museum has some interesting aircraft and military vehicles outside. Inside covers everything warfare from the middle ages up to the Cold War. Much of the description is in English which was a big help! Also staff were very helpful and on hand to point in the right direction. Very central to the city centre. Definitely recommended!

After visiting the National Museum located next to this museum, we had only time to check the open-air exhibition that has a free entrance.

Especially it was interesting to see the airplanes and how big they are in reality. Yakovlev Yak-40 and Antonov An-26 have also been in civilian use to transport passengers.

I went to visit this museum and figured all the planes and cool stuff was in the outer grounds so why pay to go inside and see much less.

Good museum, with a lot of exibitions, of the whole war ages, many military stuff, thanks, missiles, aircrafts and so on, of course the most recent stuff is all from soviet times, but very interesting to visit, and easy to reach by public transports, as it is exactly in the city centre.
There is a subsidiary sight inside fort Czerniakow, in the south subhurban area of the city, with free entrance, full of thanks, aircrafts and artillery, really worth a visit.

This museum is a little off the beaten track but worth the pleasant riverside walk to reach it. On the day we went, during our two and a half hour visit we saw only one other person; although for us it was great to be able to look without crowds it is a real shame for the museum. The exhibits are well laid out, a free audio guide available and the story behind the Katyn massacre moving and emotional. More people should visit.

This Museum is divided into both an outdoor and an indoor exhibition. The outdoor area contains a vast collection of aircraft, helicopters, armoured vehicles and armaments whilst inside the Museum contains a fantastic exhibition of armour through the centuries.

There is also currently an excellent temporary exhibition of all the personal paraphernalia used by soldiers, sailors and airmen worldwide.

The external exhibits are incidentally free to view, whilst a small fee is levied for entrance to the indoor exhibitions.

This is a fascinating Museum for anyone interested in military history and hardware and demands you allow at least half a day (even on a cold and wet February Wednesday).

I am a big fan 20th Century military history and technology, especially that of WW2 and there on after. Being so close to the museum I dragged my girlfriend along and went through it. I was like a little kid seeing all the old tanks and planes in the courtyard and then we walked through the interior displays with my girlfriend enjoying the much older items.

Only reading and speaking English there wasn't many descriptions of battles in English but that is understandable. Most of the items contained an English description.

I have wanted to see this museum for a long time. I travelled to Warsaw from Australia, a 25 hour journey by air. I had seen photos of parts of the museum and worked out that it would be best to see the interior exhibits first, while I still had energy. I spent 3 hours inside. The indoor galleries concentrate on the military history of Poland since the 10th century, and particularly strong on Poland's era of military superiority in the 17th century, then war history on through the 18th century. There is also a large exhibition devoted to World War 2 through to the Soviet occupation. I really enjoyed seeing the armor of the Kings and Princes of Poland throughout history. Australia had a history of native settlement for 50,000 years prior to the landing of white men in the 16th century, so seeing lots of armor and arms of the 10th century, is really quite a thrill. I had my wife with me on my visit and even she was interested in the early exhibits. One thing that stuck out for me was seeing the number of internationally made small arms and weaponry used by the Polish Army in WW 2. It seemed like there was an enormous supply of the arms laying on battlefields and they were all collected an reused by the Polish Army. I saw Colt.45's and Luger Parabellum pistols used by the Polish Army, as well as Lee Enfield rifles, Sten guns, M1 Garands and even MP40 light machine guns and a huge array of heavy machine guns. These were also used in ongoing warfare with the Communists during the Soviet occupation. I noted even German helmets were repainted and used extensively on the battlefields. The exterior exhibits of the various tanks, armored vehicles and aeroplanes and helicopters were also painted with Polish identification markings. The exhibitions are well laid out and are easy to view. Toilets are available in an out building by walking through a courtyard and there is a charge for using them, like most other public toilets in Warsaw. I accidentally left my Mercedes Benz cap in a cubicle and I went back to retrieve it seconds later, it had disappeared. I asked the lady at the change table and she threw her hands up in the air as if to say, so what. I hope she enjoys my sweaty old cap. So be careful when you go there. The museum itself is one of the best in Europe, so a long visit is highly recommended.
