The museum has a single purpose to tell the story of it’s namesake, when in WWII, the Polish resistance Home Army tried to retake Warsaw from Germany. It was the single largest resistance effort in Europe in the entire war. The museum tries to tell the story of this uprising in it’s every facet, whether in the form of weapons used or love letters sent.
It’s arranged so beautifully, that visitors will find themselves engrossed in the story as soon as they enter. The experience is surprisingly personal, and many have left the museum unexpectedly moved.

It will give you an insight to how people survived, during WWII, a city fighting to survive. Some very good displays. Sunday very busy,any other day is fine.
Fantastic museum! A little difficult to follow in the right order but great experience. Get the audio guide. It’s very informative. Such a dark period in history.
Great museum. Truly a walk into the dark history that the city has in its memoirs. A great monument to the tenacity and courage of the polish people of the day. No wonder poles are so patriotic.
it's really worth visiting to get to know the stories of this wonderful city and brave people. I visited during a weekend trip to Warsaw. There were some people but it didn't significantly affect my reception of the exhibition. A lot of exhibits and a fantastic plane!
Rather a national monument than a museum. The institution collects an impressive amount of items, such as leaflets, parts of clothing including white strips used by the insurgents, electronic devices used by both sides, badges, medalls etc. It uses modern style of presenting historical events which is focused on enjoyment and entertainment. It is certainly a place that supports Polish national pride. Yet for a foreign visitor who has little or no knowledge about the Warsaw Uprising, it may be just chaotic, giving no clear outline of the events. I was not bored but I will remember quite little. In contrast to, let's say, a similar museum of Irish Independence in Dublin, which is also entertaining but much more informative.
