We visited on New Years' Eve, which I understand was probably not the best day, but we found it to be a little disorganised, with the staff not terribly bothered with helping us. We were unable to get any audio guides as the desk was not unmanned, but the staff were no longer dealing with people. It was a Sunday, so entrance was free, which was a good thing. The place was relatively packed, some of the history was interesting, but it was scattered all over the place, I guess we were unsure of where to go without the audio guides. Still, I would recommend it for future travellers.

This museum was recommended by family and well worth the visit. It drives home the impact this event had on the people of Warsaw/Poland and their fighting spirit. It takes much longer to go through than we thought. Plan to spend several hours if you want to see everything. I think the ambiance and feel are authentic and I highly recommend visiting.

It was a very impressive museum on the history of the city. But I do not advice this museum to sensitive people. It has hard photos (but it is possible to avoid most of them)

The collection that this museum has on display is incredible and the story they are telling is both inspiring and moving. However, to make the ambience match the topic, the whole place is dark and gloomy, so much so that more than half of the signs and items are illegible. There are areas where they use lighting in such a way that the ambience is still one of dark, but the signs are lighted well. I do not know why this does not cover all exhibits. It was a real disappointment for our group.

Visited the museum on a cold winters day and was shocked at the size of the museum and how in-depth and interesting the exhibits were. Easy to follow the route around the museum and gives you a walk through the lives and times from the break out of war up to the uprising. Many good exhibits all with a plethora of information to go with them. Left the museum with such a greater understanding of the uprising and of the lives of those who were effected. A full size plane hangs in one of the main areas which is particularly eye catching. Spent maybe 3 hours and could have spent longer to take in all the information and to look around the artefacts and displays.
