Definitely one of my favorites. Very interesting and worth visiting. This interactive museum commemorates the largest underground combat operation in German-occupied Europe during World War II. The 1944 Warsaw Uprising changed forever the face of the Polish capital.

Muzeum Marii Skłodowskiej-Curie

Very interesting place – here in the 16 rooms you will learn about the history of Polish money, play the role of a broker, enter a safe and see what an ATM looks like inside. You will also learn to distinguish a fake from an original.
Zamek Królewski w Warszawie
Instytut Narodowy Fryderyka Chopina

The photoplasticon was a popular device at the turn of the 19th and 20th century that allowed viewers to see changing three-dimensional photographs.

Muzeum Wojska Polskiego
The only museum in Poland, where you can learn about the history of the Polish Army from its beginnings in the X century to the end of World War II.
Muzeum Sportu i Turystyki
The museum is one of the oldest museums of this type in Europe and it has been operating since 1952. You will be able to see a permanent exhibition showing the history of sport from ancient Greece to the present day and many other things. The building itself is steeped in the symbolism of the Olympic idea – the elevator shaft resembles a torch, and the roof is akin to stadium architecture.
