Warsaw museums generally fall into two categories: historical and hysterical. Poland’s capital plays host to a surprising number of specialty museums with fun themes ranging from neon signs to Polish vodka (although Zagreb will always be Europe’s niche museum mecca). But for a city as storied as this one, it’s no surprise that the most popular Warsaw museums commemorate Poland’s rich history.
Luckily for visitors, there’s a lot of variety therein, from the Warsaw Rising Museum that chronicles the city’s resistance efforts during World War II to the Fryderyk Chopin Museum that honors one of the country’s foremost artists. If you only have time to see a handful of Warsaw museums, these are the six Warsaw museums to see first (but know that there’s a wealth of specialty museums waiting if you can swing it).
