The Warsaw Rising Museum is not an ordinary museum. It is alive and as soon as you enter you can hear an echo of its beating heart that belongs to all those people who sacrificed their lives to defend the capital. While visiting a former power plant, thanks to an excellent combination of audio visualisation and video, you can feel like in the very heart of the Warsaw Uprising. You will learn about courses of the main insurgent battles or operations and about the everyday life of normal people during the German occupation. Visitors have an opportunity to walk in sewers, that were reconstructed like the original ones, and watch a 3D movie about completely ruined Warsaw.
The exhibition in the museum is not limited only to the uprising, it goes much further. You can learn about insurgents’ post-war lives and about the post-war fate of Poland which was dominated by communistic terror. The Warsaw Rising Museum is a place which helps us understand contemporary Warsaw. It is a special, often touching, story about a fighting city and humans’ ideals.
The Museum also prepared some space particularly for children ‒ the Little Insurgent Room [Sala Małego Powstańca] which is devoted to fates of the youngest heroes.
