Warsaw Uprising Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • Interesting and good information, but too many issues that make it a poor museum. The design of the museum is incredibly confusing with no clear layout or signposting, even the maps aren't clear on the locations of everything. They claim to be completely accessible, but several rooms only have steps into it, lifts aren't clearly marked, the floors are mostly cobblestone, and where lifts can get you to certain places you have to find someone who can use a key to get you there which takes more time out of your visit. Overall an incredibly stressful and anxiety inducing experience and I would recommend you just get a book and leave

  • Nice museum to visit but with several shortcomings: first, there was a huge queue on a Sunday we visited, which makes the waiting last for 1h (despite the ticket being free); second, the museum is very rich, with an incredible amount of legacy documents and items from the Insurrection that require a long time to see in reasonable depth; third, the museum does not really have a defined tour pathway, which makes it a bit confusing (also, it is inside a particularly dark building, which makes it even harder). All in all, a good place to visit, with rich content on the Insurrection but useful if you come early in the day and spend at least 2h inside.

  • Amazing setting. Very interesting form, not just flat plain facts. Been twice, both surprisingly good. On the negative side, price of a t shirt.

  • Powerful and moving. Will get an emotional reaction from anyone. Also informative, although the layout is very difficult to follow, at least for me. Don't miss out the third floor, which at the time of my visit was probably the most interesting part. Could do with a clearer route, or signposts separating galleries.

  • So informative! It can be a bit crowded in there, but once you pass the first area it gets smoother to walk around and read the history of Warsaw. Loved that the museum made some of the heavy information more interactive!
