The Warsaw Rising Museum was opened on the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of fighting in Warsaw. The Museum is Warsaw residents’ tribute to those who fought and died for independent Poland and its free capital. It is located in a former tram power station, a 20th-century landmark of industrial architecture located by Przyokopowa and Grzybowska streets.

For the five years of its activity, the Museum received almost 2 700 000 visitors, more than 100 000 students from all school profiles took part in museum workshops. The Museum gathered over 30 000 exhibits, of which nearly 1000 are presented on the exhibition area of 3000 km2. The Museum Library's collection consists of over 11 000 volumes. Over 2000 interviews with the Insurgents were carried out and recorded as a part of the Oral History Archive.

The Little Insurgent’s Room is a place where the youngest visitors can make their first steps in learning history. Parents visiting the exhibition may leave their children here under the care of tutors. This is where the museum lessons and workshops for the youngest visitors take place. Classes are conducted in a children-friendly atmosphere and surrounding, with toys, games and puzzles relating to the war time events and objects styled or reproduced to evoke the interwar years. The children visiting our Museum have a chance to enrich our collection with their own work. The majority of toys, replica and board games used in the Little Insurgent’s Room are available at the Museum Shop.

The Warsaw Rising Museum hosts interesting meetings for school and university students, as well as for anyone interested in the history of the Second World War and of Warsaw. The meetings are organized as part of the activities of the Stefan Starzyński Institute and the Department of Exhibition. Until present the Museum has hosted e.g. History Lectures conducted by Warsaw Rising Museum guides, as well as film screenings accompanied with discussions on Warsaw in the history of cinema entitled „Meet Warsaw Through Film”.
