This beautifully restored 3-floor red-brick railway building has been adapted (including a gorgeous glass atrium) to house the Home Army Museum - documenting the size, organisation and efforts of Poland's underground military resistance from the time of the failed September campaign of 1939 to the underground armed forces official disbanding in 1945. The Home Army's continuing fight for freedom within the country's two occupied zones (Nazi and Soviet) is one of World War II's less acknowledged aspects, and though this enormous museum goes to great length to demonstrate that Poland's government, military and civilian population never surrendered, the sprawling exhibits are confusing and chaotically organised; as a result you may want to dish out the 150zł, plus ticket price, for a guided tour (make sure to book at least one day in advance - English, German, Italian, French, and Spanish available). Nevertheless it's a must for those interested in WWII history, and you should reserve at least two hours for visiting.
