Museum of the History of Polish Jews12
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.
English guided tours are on weekdays (except Tuesday) at 4pm, at weekends at 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm.
