Museum of Warsaw

  Rynek Starego Miasta 28-42 ,   Old Town          (+48) 22 277 44 02     21 May 2020

After a long and exhaustive renovation, one of our favourite museums in Warsaw finally reopened in grand fashion at the end of May 2017. The revamped museum's stored permanent collection (300,000 items total) now consists of three new curated sections: The Things of Warsaw, Warsaw Data and The History of Tenement Houses. Only 7,352 objects were initially selected to be displayed over 8 thematic rooms, however, now all remaining rooms are open (21 in total). Every item has been carefully chosen and many played starring roles in the city's storied history. There is plenty to see in this fascinating museum. 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.
