The Warsaw Uprising Museum (named Warsaw Rising Museum, Polish: Muzeum Powstania Warszawskiego), in the Wola district of Warsaw, Poland, is dedicated to the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. The institution of the museum was established in 1983, but no construction work took place for many years. It opened on July 31, 2004, marking the 60th anniversary of the uprising. The museum sponsors research into the history of the uprising, and the history and possessions of the Polish Underground State. It collects and maintains hundreds of artifacts — ranging from weapons used by the insurgents to love letters — to present a full picture of the people involved. The museum's stated goals include the creation of an archive of historical information on the uprising and the recording of the stories and memories of living participants. Its director is Jan Ołdakowski, with historian Dariusz Gawin from the Polish Academy of Sciences as his deputy. The museum is a member organisation of the Platform of European Memory and Conscience.

    One of the best museums I've ever been to. Excellent exhibits that fully immerse you into the climate of the time. It does an exceptional job at recreating the emotions and mentality of varsavians during occupation. It is very moving. Highly recommend taking the audio tour for the full experience. Very well narrated. I recommend seeing this museum first when coming to Warsaw. The symbol of the Polish uprising can be seen everywhere in the city if you look carefully (usually followed by a little paragraph about someone who died there protecting Polish literature or culture during the war). You'll be able to appreciate how much history surrounds you with every step!

    Incredible museum depicting the Warsaw resistance to Nazi occupation. Air conditioned, locker rentals, very interactive and educational. You'll easily spend 3+ hours inside this multi-level venue.

    A must for everyone visiting Warsaw. Fantastic museum, very multimedial and modern. You will be beamed back in time to learn about the Warsaw Uprising history. The heart beat sound that you hear when you enter is very moving and contributes to the atmosphere. Plan for 2 hours at the very least to learn and understand what the Germans did to the city of Warsaw and how the Poles fought the utopic but heroic fight against the occupier. Very special experience, very well worth a visit. The Museum can be crowded so plan ahead and buy your tickets online.
