Warsaw Rising Museum

Warszawa, Poland

The Warsaw Rising Museum was opened on the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of fighting in Warsaw. The Museum is Warsaw residents’ tribute to those who fought and died for independent Poland and its free capital. It is located in a former tram power station, a 20th century landmark of industrial architecture located by Przyokopowa and Grzybowska streets. For the ten years of its activity, the Museum received almost 4 600 000 visitors; more than 240 000 students from all school profiles took part in museum workshops. The Museum gathered over 30 000 exhibits, of which nearly 1000 are presented on the exhibition area of 3000 km2. The Museum Library’s collection consists of over 11 000 volumes. We have already issued over 170 000 own publications. The Museum was covered in over 10 000 press articles. By the present date, over 2000 interviews with the Insurgents were carried out and recorded as a part of the Oral History Archive. We cooperate with almost 500 volunteers.
