There are few better ways to discover any city than with a personal driver/guide: cover more ground and in more depth than you could alone. For the peak of the Communist-era style, explore Warsaw in a Fiat 125p. Customize the tour to suit your interests but expect to check off key highlights: Old Town, New Town, and the Palace of Culture and Science.

I was so impressed with this museum. It has an incredible level of detail in every part of the exhibition and gives a very comprehensive guide over the history of polish jews. I recommend taking your time and not rushing through it.

I can really see why this won an award for the best European museum. The way some of the exhibits are laid out is really creative and makes it very interesting and does not get boring - which it could do as there is an awful lot of content here but the different mediums prevent this. Even the building itself is really impressive from the outside and as you walk into the entrance hall. I visited on a Thursday and didn't realise it was free on this day, which was a bonus! The only part I was a little disappointed with was the Holocaust section as it did seem to be fairly light touch and I didn't feel the impact of this terrible period of history as much as I thought I would. In fact, I walked around the corner as I thought there would be more to come on this section! It's a shame as this doesn't seem balanced with the rest of this high-quality exhibition.

The museum dedicated to the history of the Polish Jews, in principle, is a highly invested and well-designed museum. In general, it is highly recommended that every Jew (and non-Jew) who visits Warsaw will not give up a visit to this museum. In my humble opinion there are 2 weaknesses in the museum. The First one is that there are almost NO authentic and / or antique (original) items on display. The second weakness, which in my opinion is the most serious one, is "an almost complete lack of reference to the fate of the Jews who were citizens of Poland under the Nazi occupation of the Germans during World War II." Almost complete disregard to the life in the ghettos, the terrible concentration camps and especially the "EXTERMINATION and MURDER CAMPS of 6 million Jews by the Nazis and their aides. I found in the museum ALMOST NO HINT and ALMOST COMPLETE DISREGARD for this terrible subject.
