The tickets were confusing, and we were checked/denied entry to various exhibitions throughout the 21 rooms, across 5 floor museum (so expect lots of stairs).
There are 7352 objects on display about Warsaw but, apart from the interesting architecture, it is quite static and lacks engagement.
View from the top floor was lovely, but (to be honest) this was our least favourite of the Warsaw attractions that we visited.

On entrance from the old town square I wasn’t expecting the museum to be just as big as it is. It’s over 5 floors and covers all history of Warsaw including many artefacts, art and maps. It is very detailed and to be honest Mr H and I had put aside 2 hours thinking it would be plenty of time but realised to give it justice you’d probably need at least 3. It is very detailed and complex so more for adults or older teenagers. My only criticism would be we found it very warm!

I’m generally bored with these kind of museums. But this one was so well done I was pleasantly surprised. If you got bored with a particular room you could move to the next and the audio guide would automatically make the transition. If you felt like sitting down and just listening to the guide, an empty seat could usually be found. The museum went to as much the cultural history as it did the political history. If a topic wasn’t your cup of tea, you could just skip it. I recommend.

Multilevel facility with exhibits addressing the history of Warsaw. Some videos are present, but most materials are read, with a reasonable availability of English. The winding passages and stairs can become a bit tedious. The staff is friendly, and the cost quite reasonable.

WOW

This is a multilevel museum that is really interesting and has so much info and details.

There is lots to learn and there is a great view at the top. Worth the climb.

I would definitely leave plenty of time to visit.

The audio guide is really helpful, easy to use and informative.

This rambling museum which is built onto a series of connected townhouses on Old Town Square provides a fascinating look into the history of Warsaw. Be sure to take advantage of the audio guide which really helps with the interpretation of the exhibits. It can be easy to get lost so follow the instructions carefully! There are many fascinating and varied exhibits including a postcard collection, art from across the ages depicting Warsaw scenes, archeological items including a hoard of silver coins and a room of clocks. On the top floor (many stairs up!) there are some great views onto Old Town Square and of the skyline. The entrance fee is 20 PLN and the museum is free on Thursdays.

This museum gives an excellent insight into the history of Warsaw. It is located on the old town square in a 4 story previous townhouse building. The head sets are easy to use as they allow you to view the displays at your leisure as they change settings automatically as you move from room to room with no need to push buttons. There is also a great view of the area from the top floor which is not to be missed.

Went to the museum mainly to see a temporary exhibit in honor of the 80th anniversary of the invasion of Warsaw by2 the Nazis. Well done with English subtitles under and next to exhibition items in Polish as well as an audio-guide for the whole museum available in English or Polish.
If anything this exhibit is heavy on the audio and weak on the more traditional items. But it was a fine attempt to relay the feelings and experiences of that first month of WWII.
We were emotionally as well as physically tired after almost 2 hours in this one exhibit.
The rest of the museum will have to wait for another time. Tickets cam be reused up till 30 days later and a visit to the Praga museum is also free with its entry ticket for 7 days afterwards. Wise to plan a repeat visit of the rest of this large museum in advance. I won't be here long enough. Plans for the rest of my stay.

Plan on spending several hours here if you're interested in the local history of Warsaw. The Museum collects artifacts of Warsaw, researches them and makes them available to the public. The new core exhibition refers to the histories of particular objects in order to tell about historical events and people who had made an impact on the shape and character of contemporary Warsaw. Recommend getting the headset to help you through the museum. Enjoyable.
