Museum of Warsaw

  Rynek Starego Miasta 28-42 ,   Old Town          (+48) 22 277 44 02     24 Sep 2020

Found inside a collection of 11 Old Town tenements, this revamped museum's stored permanent collection (300,000 items total) consists of three new curated sections: The Things of Warsaw, Warsaw Data and The History of Tenement Houses. All museum items and exhibits are displayed over 21 thematic rooms. Every item has been carefully chosen and many played starring roles in the city's storied history; also, the majority of the collection was gifted by the citizens of Warsaw after World War 2, hoping to preserve the cultural history of the city. Without doubt, there is plenty to see and enjoy. The very buildings the museum is located in are a sight to behold. Interestingly, despite severe damage during the war, many of the original aspects of the architecture remained intact and can be viewed during your visit. The museum is a truly amazing and kinaesthetic way of experiencing the events and understanding the processes that formed Warsaw as we know it today. Note, a ticket here also grants entry into the Praga District Museum, and if you're planning to visit all branches, then a combined ticket at 60/40zł can be purchased, allowing access to all within 7 days.

I had the privilege of visiting the museum on Sunday, September 20, 2009. I felt that the review of the city's history was balanced and well-done. Attention was not focused on only one group of the population. It is a large exhibit and one can not do justice to the displays on only one visit. I would like to return and see it again. I do wish that more of the explanations included English text. Many international visitors, like me, do not know Polish.
