The museum is located in the former tramway power station. The entire museum exhibition is presented in an unusual way, because it affects the visitors with a multimedial experience of sound, image and light.
An excellent scenery from sixty years ago, the granite pavement, make us feel like we walked among the rubble of a destroyed city.
Still running printing presses from the Forties print among other the historic announcement from August 3rd, 1944, the "Newsletter" and the occasional flyer that could be a souvenir of your stay at the museum.
In the hall of Little Insurgent, designed specifically for children, which is the only room of this type in Poland, the children learn history by watching the uprising theater, or portraying the role of nurses and postmen. Even the youngest visitors are thought of, as they can play jigsaw, board games and with replicas of old toys.
The usage of a variety of multimedia effects and specially arranged space brings the reality of the uprising even closer. In the distance you hear the sound of German aircraft engines, exploding bombs, sirens and gun shots. You can also view sewage channels, which were used by insurgents to relocate safely from one place to another. All this makes a big impression on both adults and children (Note: younger children may be scared!)
During the tour we can also see the newsreels from the uprising shot by the insurgents. Among the exhibits will also see bands of insurgents, a replica of the B-24J Liberator plane and many others.
