The Museum aims at presenting the most significant themes in the history of Poland — state and nation — with special emphasis on the idea of freedom: functioning and development of the parliamentary system, civic life and institutions, and the struggle for freedom and independence.
The mission of the Museum is to support education and development of a modern patriotic sensibility, to develop citizens who are conscious of their tradition and open to the wider world.

Unfinished Mission" and presents multimedia exhibitions on Google Cultural Institute platform. In cooperation with Polish Press Agency the Museum runs the website www.dzieje.pl.
