  • A fascinating and moving account of the Warsaw uprising! An absolute must see! The audio guide is good and it's easy to find your way around the exhibits. It is huge and you will need a few hours to fully appreciate it. We had tea and cake in the cafe too which was lovely.
  • An overall nice museum with a huge amount of information about the uprising and memories from people that took part in it. A big downside was having to leave bags behind and the limit of going into the museum in a small group of people. The direction of the tour was pretty confusing and also there's only one tight doorway to enter and exit the museum which made us wait for a while before we could go in.
