Spend two or three hours with an audio guide in a richly rewarding history lesson. The technology used to educate patrons is beyond compare; this is not a ghetto or holocaust museum, but far more than that.

This museum was so engaging. Unlike other museums that tell historical events with articles in display cases and information boards, this museum tells the 1000 year old story of Polish Jews from the Middle Ages to modern times using murals on the walls, books open...More

Place to visit for at least 2 reasons: interesting exhibiton, presenting history and daily life of Jews in Poland over centuries (with really amazing reconstruction of richly decorated wooden roof of the synagogue) and building of the Museum itself, which for me is really excellent...More

The execution was superb, some things were quite interesting to explore. Very much information crammed into a huge complex building. Yet, if you are not into factographical museums, like me, it's probably not for you, as it gets tiring quite quickly.

Amazing museum with so many hands on exhibits. It wends its way through the history of the Polish Jews in a breathtaking manner. One could spend days and days there and still not see everything. Very special indeed!

The 60 stops along the audio guided tour are all pretty good as you take in all of the history of Polish Jews.

This is a must visit place but if you go - and if you are in Warsaw you should - don't plan on anything else during that day. We spent three hours or more here and were captivated. the architecture of the building is superb...More

This ranks as one of the best modern, interactive museums I have been to... and I have been to a lot! You can go at your own pace, listening, watching, probing more deeply the specifics that interest you. It tells the highs and horrendous lows...More

No we just walked around soaking it all in and reading the notes at each exhibit. The water fountain display at night in the multi media park is good in Warsaw. Rising museum is a must, Central Park. There is so much history... More
