THE WARSAW UPRISING MUSEUM

Author: Anothertravelguide.com1 COMMENT

THE WARSAW UPRISING MUSEUM

Opened in 2004 to mark the 60th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, the museum has now become one of the most popular tourist venues of the city. The museum is dedicated to the members of the Uprising who laid down their lives for Poland and its capital. The exhibit employs images and sounds to portray the struggle for survival prior to and during the Uprising, the horrors of the German occupation, and the post-war terror wrought by the communists. The museum is housed in a former tram depot, with plenty of photographic and film material presented in the vast spaces of the building. In the middle of the building stands a steel monument with a calendar of the Uprising engraved on its side; from within the monument comes the sound of a heartbeat, symbolising life in Warsaw in 1944. One of the main attractions of the museum is a replica of the B-24J Liberator bomber aircraft. The tower offers a wonderful view of the city and Park Wolności (Freedom Park) with its memorial wall, engraved with the names of the more than 10,000 insurgents killed in the Uprising.

The Warsaw Uprising Museum (Muzeum Powstania Warszawskiego, officially translated into English as the Warsaw Rising Museum), located in the district of Wola in Warsaw, Poland, is a museum dedicated to the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. The institution of the Museum was established in 1983, but no construction work took place for many years, and the museum finally opened on July 31, 2004, marking the 60th anniversary of the Uprising.
The Museum sponsors research into the history of the Uprising, and the history and possessions of the Polish Underground State. It collects and maintains hundreds of artefacts, ranging from weapons used by the insurgents to love letters, in order to present a full picture of the people involved. The Museum's stated goals include the creation of an archive of historical information on the Uprising and the recording of the stories and memories of the still living Uprising participants. Its director is Jan Ołdakowski.
