Warsaw Uprising Museum: A Trip Back into Poland's History

Posted by North South Travel Blogger · Jul 17 · in Warsaw, Poland · about Sightseeing

Remembering Warsaw's difficult journey to freedom is one way you can show your support for the struggles the people encountered. A visit to the Warsaw Uprising Museum will tell you their story.

 

July 31, 2004 marked the 60th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising. It's also the day that The Warsaw Rising Museum opened its doors to the public. The museum stands testament to the brave people who fought and died for a free Poland.

The displays within the museum show the difficult and, often, tragic lives in which the people survived, and takes you on a journey through the days leading up to the uprising and the events that took place during and after.

 

The story is well-told with nearly 1500 pictures and films along with almost 1000 exhibitions. The monument in the heart of the museum bears a calendar of the historical events, but one of the most popular attractions is the tower, which overlooks Warsaw and the impressive Freedom Park. The names of more than 10,000 insurgents who gave their lives are engraved on the Memorial Wall.

 

While the museum has a sombre appeal, there is a section dedicated to children, and includes activities, models, and other intriguing things for kids to do and see.
