  • A must-visit in Warsaw, or even Poland. The museum is well-designed, authentically displayed the history of the rising of Warsaw and wartime life. I was immersed in the atmosphere of sadness, hopelessness, and bright of humanity multiple times during my visiting. I highly recommend whomever spends time in Warsaw to come to this museum and take a deep understand about this unforgettable and significantly meaningful memory of Warsaw, Poland. Love this place!
