I visited this little gem of a museum and loved it.
I had found it online before traveling to Poland. It was on my list of "must-see" sites for a free day in Warsaw.
It is within walking distance of the Polish Army Museum, another good place to visit.
The museum has options for an audio tour and even a tour guide. Check online for these services. I did not take advantage of either. The exhibits are in Polish and English. I did happen to overhear a tour guide talking with a group. She was sharing her personal experiences living under communism. It made me think that I should have arranged for a guide. I feel the museum was very accurate in its portrayal because she remarked how one exhibit was "just like what I had at home!"
The displays give an honest look at life, good and bad. There is a sense of nostalgia, not for the times, but for the shared experiences of those who lived through it.
I am very glad I visited this. The exhibits are curated nicely and the items on display are really in good shape. I think the people who created this museum did an excellent job!
