Don't selll this Museum short by allowing too little time. You will need at least three and a half hours to see everything and if you can make it the one thing you do in a day, so be it. Most worthwhile museum I have...More

The museum was very interactive and informative. I would definitely recommend visiting. However, the museum was difficult to navigate because the numbers were out of order. Also, some of the employees were not friendly at all.

The people of Warsaw had a hell of a time during WW2 and this museum brings to life the story of everyday folk who wanted their city back. All displays have descriptions written in English. Recommend you go on a Sunday (free) and pay for...More

This reminded us of the 9/11 museum in New York. Really bought the era to life. There were so many exhibits and a plane hanging low down which was menacing.

Lots to see in this fascinating museum. Really essential to make sense of Wartime Warsaw and the aftermath of Communist rule. Do not miss the 3D flight over Warsaw in 1945 - off the tail of the Liberator and easily overlooked.

Technically very good museum. All presented in modern and sophisticated way. Shame that museum does not show truth about political reasons of wrong decision to put whole city of people to cruelity of battle.

Fantastic museum which really gives you a little taste of what the war was like back in 1939-44. It is noisy since they are emulating the shelling/bombing. It would be nice if there were more signs in English .

Nice modern museum with information in both english and polish. It is however, a little bit on the low side when it comes to telling the story in the big picture. Besides the fascinating descriptions of the heros, I missed more to place the period...More

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.
