The museum is enormous - you could spend an entire day there and you wouldn't be able to cover everything. Personally it's because of that, that I'm only rating it 3 starts. I'd give 2.5 if I could - too much is happening, and when you're in Warsaw for a limited time, like we were, you don't want to spend... More

The section that we found is hidden. It took some doing to find it, but yet it was worth it. You have to look for a small drive through which leads to a court yard in the far back. When I look at the wall, I try to imagine all those who were barred out and those who were caged... More

This museum is remarkable. The history of Jews in Poland is long and complicated. This museum deals with this in a way that makes sense of it all. It is also very moving.

Somehow this manages to be both grand and evocative yet downplayed and full of proud dignity at the same time. Don't go out of your way to see it, but it's a great monument to check out if you are in the vicinity of POLIN, the Jewish history museum.

Visiting these memorials with a guide who knows the history behind them is the best way experience them. The story is an emotional one, it tells of loss, despair, courage, adversity, brutality and dignity. It's an unforgettable experience, and seeing the other monuments in the near vicinity ties it all together in a narrative about WW2 and the courage of... More

This is another great memorial to the sufferning events of WWII. Really sobering and another reminder of what the people of Warsaw and the rest of Poland have risen from.

This is a must visit museum in Warsaw. Well organized and modern. Very respectful with a balanced perspective and dedication to the atrocities committed upon the Jewish People of Eastern Europe and Poland. Well worth a few hours of your tiime even if you have visited similar types of museums in other locations.

This is a powerful monument dedicated to the Jewish Ghetto of Warsaw that was built by the Nazis. It was a part of the city of Warsaw that was walled off and where Jewish people were forced to live in crowded unsanitary conditions and eventually starved or killed. Horrible history. Powerful memorial.

To unite in memory with the million of Jews murdered in all parts of Poland. Part of the visit at POLIN Museum.
