Warsaw Uprising Museum
Commemorating the Polish struggle during World War II, the Warsaw Uprising Museum collects interactive exhibits, photos and video to document the city's war years.
The Warsaw Uprising Museum opened its doors to the public in 2004. It is one of the city's most innovative and popular attractions, and a must-see for history buffs. Located just a kilometre away from the Radisson Blu Sobieski Hotel, the Warsaw Uprising Museum is a popular stop-off point for holidaymakers at this hotel in Warsaw.
Relive the Warsaw Rising through interactive exhibits
The Warsaw Uprising Museum honours the resilience and courage of the Polish people during World War II. In particular, it documents a 63-day rebellion against Nazi occupiers of the city. Although the rebels expected assistance from an advancing Soviet Army, help did not arrive and they became the city's sole resistors against the German aggressors.
The museum, literally translated as the Warsaw Rising Museum, opened on the 60th anniversary of the armed resistance. The museum tour leads visitors through a recreated sewer en route to a film screening documenting the uprising's turbulent first month. Additional exhibits show the Nazis' destruction of the city, a 3D film of the bombed-out remains of post-war Warsaw and the creation of a Soviet puppet state.
The museum uses actual documents and first-hand accounts to capture compelling accounts of the realities of a wartime occupation.
