Warsaw Uprising Museum

Learn about the defining days of war in Warsaw at this enormous museum, which traces the Home Army’s doomed attempt to liberate the city from its German occupiers.

The scale of devastation and loss of life that Warsaw witnessed during World War II can be difficult to comprehend, but the Warsaw Uprising Museum helps bring it to life. Visit one of the most popular museums in Poland and browse the immersive exhibits, which document the tragic events of the uprising from its inception to its ultimate defeat.

Discover what life was like for Warsaw residents under Nazi occupation and get a sense of the incredible odds stacked against the Home Army (Armia Krajowa) who fought for their city for 63 days during the rising. When the Poles finally surrendered, the Germans retaliated by destroying what was left of Warsaw and deporting all of its remaining citizens. Many of them would never return. 

Observe in vivid detail the events of the rising. The museum, built on the site of an old power station, features lots of interactive displays. Examine a replica radio station and Allied plane. Crawl through models of city sewers, which were used for transportation and evacuation during the conflict. Also on show are photographs and other objects dating back to the time.

Watch the stirring 5-minute 3D film City of Ruins. The filmmakers used historical pictures and new film technology to create a shocking aerial film showing the ruins of razed Warsaw from above, a once bustling city reduced to rubble. Leave the main displays and ponder what you’ve seen in the hall of remembrance and Freedom Park.These calm spaces provide an ideal setting in which to reflect.

The Warsaw Uprising Museum is open every day except Tuesday. To get here, take the tram to Rondo Daszyńskiego. Consider visiting early in the day to beat the crowds. Some displays might not be suitable for young children. For a more in-depth experience, rent an audio guide. Allow a few hours to fully absorb the displays; you will not forget it.
