Warsaw Uprising Museum - Review
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. Make sure you see the Memorial Wall, into which are carved the name of everyone who gave their lives in the uprising.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Warsaw itinerary 1 day.

Warsaw Uprising Museum, Warsaw Reviews
Obviously as an important part of Polish history, it is respectful and interesting to learn about the bravery that took place, and there is no better way to experience and learn about it than a visit to the museum. The map had confused me, as by the time I had ‘finished’ I thought it was rather short, so back tracked to the museum to make the most of my money. The cafe although adorable in its style, had underwhelmed me with the choice of food, and I settled on getting a bowl of raspberries which is a lovely idea! But I don’t know whether they put them in the fridge with some other food but the raspberries had a essence taste of garlic or some other pungent food-which isn’t too great. 😂 but go and learn about the fascinating bravery that took place!
I was very impressed with my visit. Although it was busy, with a couple of your busses an at least 2 groups of school children, it was easy to bypass busy spots and return when things were quieter. All in all I spent over 2 hours there and got quite an insight to the hard life that had been inflicted on the local population and the bravery and patriotism that it instilled. Highly recommend.
This place is seriously atmospheric. The heartbeat as you enter is intense. The use of oppressive mediums to convey the facts is new to me. The only downside is the huge amount of reading. It's not possible to read it all. The sewer tunnel reconstructions was the best. It's hard to say you enjoyed the place because of the serious subject matter.
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!
Great museum. There is not a lot of the original Warsaw left to see. The "Old Town" is a recreation of the old town after the original was systematically destroyed in WWII. So it is up to the Museums to tell the story of Warsaw and this one the story of the uprising. With the Germans defeated at Stalingrad and the Allies in Normandy the people of Warsaw thought this was the time to act. It is evident allied politics came into play and the German forces instead of retreating just intensified their local actions ultimately crushing the uprising. Were they foolhardy or left out to dry? It is difficult to tell and we may never know. The Wearsaw Uprising museum tells this story very well visit if you can.
