Warsaw uprising museum
Museum was founded in the former tram depot on Przyokopowa Street in the Wola Quarter. It was opened in 2006 on the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of fighting in Warsaw in 1944. It is very modern museum with audio-visual media which recall the atmosphere of insurrectionary Warsaw. The Museum is a tribute of Warsaw’s residents to those who fought and died for independent Poland and its free capital. The exhibition depicts fighting and everyday life during the Rising, keeping occupation terror in the background.


Particularly telling is a wall, listing the names of those insurgents killed in the fighting. Complexity of the international situation at the time of the Rising is portrayed, including the post-war years of the Communist regime and the fate of insurgents in the People’s Republic of Poland (PRL). With the total area of more than 3000 m2, 800 exhibition items, approximately 1500 photographs, films and sound recordings, history of the days preceding the Rising is told. Visitors are guided through the subsequent stages of the Rising until the time when the Insurgents left Warsaw. Their further fate is also portrayed.
