Warsaw

Polish Army Museum

  Al. Jerozolimskie 3 ,   City Centre          (+48) 22 629 52 71     09 Jul 2019

The chronological history of the Polish army is presented in a series of gloomy rooms. Suits of armour, crossbows, muskets, medals and paintings pack this museum, though the scarcity of English-language explanations mean you’ll need to hire an English-speaking guide to get the most out of the place (make sure to call in advance). The room at the end is dedicated to Poland’s role in WWII, with specific emphasis on the Warsaw Uprising. Curiously, the best part of the museum is actually free of charge: the outdoor collection of 20th century weaponry includes an array of tanks, missiles, aircraft and rocket launchers (open all year round).

From 28 July 2014 until 31 May 2015 the Polish Army Museum is hosting an exhibition on the First World War called "The Great War 1914-1918. The Real End of the Belle Epoque" [Wielka Wojna 1914-1918 Prawdziwy koniec Belle Epoque]. The exhibition is free to enter on Sunday afternoons or 15PLN at other times. At the beginning of WW1 what is now Poland was divided between Germany, Russia and Austria-Hungary. At the end of the war Poland became an independent nation. As such, this exhibition provides a unique perspective on the conflict and the momentous changes it unleashed in the east. Unfortunately the exhibition is only signed in Polish but don't let that put you off. The majority of the exhibits are self-explanatory and anyone with a basic knowledge of the First World War who wanted to learn more about the wider conflict would find a visit here a rewarding experience. The museum is easy to reach by public transport or on foot and is located a 10-15 minute walk, or 2 tram stops, from the Centrum Metro station. There is also an excellent exhibition on the Katyn massacre located in the same building which is well worth a visit.
