Welcome to Historical Museum of Warsaw

Historical Museum of Warsaw

The History Museum is one of the best of Warsaw's impressive array of museums. Its three storeys are crammed with fascinating exhibitions, covering every aspect of Warsaw's history and life from its beginnings to the present day, and there are old photographs, clippings and articles on display from everyday pre-war city life. The museum's special feature is a documentary film showing the destruction and reconstruction of the city, with footage shot by the Nazis during their calculated and systematic annihilation. The film is shown in English at 12pm, from Tuesday to Saturday. Please note that the Historical Museum of Warsaw is currently closed for renovations, but will be re-opening in 2012.

Information & Facts

Rynek Starego Miasta (Old Town Square) 28-42
6 PLN (adults), 3 PLN (concessions). Free on Sundays. An English-speaking guide costs 20 PLN
The national language is Polish. English is widely understood in tourist areas.

The official currency is Zloty (PLN), divided into 100 groszy. Poland is essentially a 'cash country', and it is difficult to negotiate credit cards and travellers cheques in the cities, and well nigh impossible in rural areas. American Express, Diners Club, Visa and MasterCard are, however, accepted in places frequented by tourists. ATMs are also beginning to proliferate in Polish cities, where the sign 'Bankomat' indicates them. Money (preferably US$ or Euros) can be exchanged in the cities and larger towns at banks, hotels or bureaux called 'kantors', which offer the best rates. Banks are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and some are open on Saturday till 1pm.

Opening Times
Open Tuesday and Thursday from 11am to 6pm; Wednesday and Friday from 10am to 3.30pm; and Saturday and Sunday from 10.30am to 4.30pm. Closed on Mondays
