If you want to learn some of Poland’s history and gain some insight into the Polish people and their culture, the Warsaw Rising Museum is the best place to start. The Museum documents the grassroots uprising of Polish citizens to free their country. The museum is free if you decide to go to the museum on a Sunday but be sure to get there in line about 30 minutes prior to the doors opening. On any other day, a student ticket is 20 zloty (almost $6). It’s truly amazing how many people, both tourists and locals alike, flock to this museum, it’s almost a tribute to their strength as Polish people. As an outsider, is interesting to ask and ponder about the uprising and the Polish spirit - any Polish person, no matter their English language skills, are happy and willing to tell you about their country and the brave women and men who struggled through the both the Nazi and Soviet regime to create the country you’re visiting today.
