The POLIN museum is very beautiful and is extremely interactive. I learned so much throughout the museum. I would definitely recommend getting the audio guide as well! A must see if visiting Warsaw!

Were there for almost 4 hours, took the audio guide which was quiet enough. The exhibition is modern, intractive, colorful and intresting. At times it was a bit overloaded with information. It's not really for young kids and impatient people. We learned many things.
