  • We visited this museum on Monday (free entry) and were able to expand our knowledge in WW2 and the Polish/Warsaw resistance.

  • I got really emotional while visiting that museum. There are no words to describe it. Each visitor of Warsaw should definitely spend some time there. Taking under consideration what is going on in Ukraine right now, it's even more important to go there. It's like facing the naked truth about every war. Great atmosphere. Great audiovisual equipment. Really amazing. I totally loved it.
  • Nice place to get a view of what happened in WW2 in the city of Warszawa. Stunning to see how the city and subsequently the country was thrown for the lions( in this case left in the hands of the Russians) by the English. And how the entire city was levelled and many people killed while all of this could have been prevented with a little bit of political courage.
