The Warsaw Rising Museum was opened during the 60th anniversary of the Warsaw Rising and became a tribute of Warsaw residents to those who fought and fell for independent Poland. To the general public the exhibit was opened on 2 October 2004. Within an area of about 1800 square metres the Warsaw Rising Museum has gathered invaluable information, photographs, texts and films.
The Museum documents the history of the Warsaw Rising in the broadest possible way by describing the international situation at the time. We strive to show the complexity of events starting with German occupation, through the establishment of illegal communist power centre in Lublin, to the fate of Warsaw insurgents in the communist People's Republic of Poland.
The Museum's uniquely designed exhibition makes a strong impression on the visitors with images, light and sound. It features, among other, over 600 exhibit items and close to 1000 photographs. The Museum’s entire collection will be accessible on the virtual platform.
