This excellent museum reviews the massacre of over 20,000 Polish men by Stalin and the Russians in the spring of 1940, soon after Russian conquered eastern Poland in collaboration with Hitler. By killing off the Polish army officers, policeman, lawyers, judges, professors, physicians, clergy, and...More

I had read about the Katyn massacre years ago, and I wandered to the area where the museum is, by accident. The lady at reception was very nice and helpful and pointed me in the right direction. Due to it still being a military place,...More

A superbly done, very moving museum. Free entry but you pay 10 zloty for the audio guide (It's worth getting). Two levels of part of the old citadel have been beautifully converted. The upper tells the story of the massacre, the fate of the men,...More

Don’t let the slightly out-of-the-way location of this wonderful museum put you off visiting it. It takes about 20 minutes to get to from the centre of town. I took the number 18 tram [direction: Zeran, every 15 minutes] from Stop 08 at Centrum [the...More

Easy "ish" to get to. If you are at the Museum of the Uprising it is about 8/10 stops on tram . Get off at "Park Traugutta" and a short walk. If you get the Metro to "Dworzec Gdansk" it is a little fiddly to...More

Really creepy place to go. Far out on the edge of Warsaw but quite near the Old/New town. It has quite a menacing atmosphere. You will need to get an audio guide because most of it is in Polish. Despite this we found the experience...More
