Why locals love it

It's shiny and new, and it's the latest addition to the Varsovian museum scene. The building was designed by Finnish architecht Rainer Mahlämaki and it's full of symbolism: the entrance hall represents the partition of the Red Sea. The museum stands on the grounds of the Warsaw Ghetto of World War II, next to the monument of the Ghetto Heroes.

Why you should visit it

The core exhibition is scheduled to open in 2014, until then you can visit temporary exhibitions, join the 'Discover the Museum' tours, attend concerts, theatre performances, lectures or just have a cup of coffee in the museum café. If you don't have time to visit the exhibition area, you can still pop in to admire the building itself.

Special tip

English guided tours are on weekdays (except Tuesday) at 4pm, at weekends at 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm.

Interesting both for the exhibition, as well as for architectural experience. A lot of music and cultural events are taking place here.

Amazing architecture and great design of exhibition, however the museum offers so much nittygritty detail information that it blurs the overview.
