The basics

The Warsaw Uprising Museum takes visitors on a journey through the 1944 uprising, from the terrors of Nazi rule to the fighting, defeat of the rebels, and Warsaw’s subsequent destruction and occupation by Soviet forces.

Entry is ticketed and visitors explore the three-level museum independently, with the option to pay extra for an audio guide to lead them around and provide valuable context. The museum is a fixture on many Warsaw tours that focus on the city’s modern history. These typically include a visit to the museum alone or an added visit to a second attraction, such as the POLIN Museum, and include return transportation for convenience.
