Warsaw Uprising Museum
The Warsaw Uprising was a 63-day struggle to liberate World War 2 Warsaw from Nazi/German occupation. Undertaken by the Home Army (Armia Krajowa, AK), the Polish resistance group, at the time Allied troops were breaking through the Normandy defenses and the Red Army was standing at the line of the Vistula River.
The fundamental goal of the Museum is to conduct research and teaching activities directly related to the Warsaw 1944 Rising and to the legacy of the Polish Underground State. The Museum strives to achieve this goal mainly by accumulating, developing and preserving collections as well as by disseminating and popularizing knowledge on these subjects. Some of the other activities carried out by the Museum aim to integrate veterans’ and military circles and educate youth in the spirit of patriotism and respect for national traditions (taken from http://www.1944.pl).
I have visited the Museum 2 times and in both opportunities I have spent at least three ours amazed by all the things you can find out about this terrible period of human history. And also about the great design of the museum itself. It is really worthy of admiration! Go visit it if you have the chance.
