10 Places That All History Fans Must Visit In Warsaw

From a splendid 17th century capital to virtual annihilation during World War II, Warsaw has a rich but often tragic history. Stunning royal palaces stand in stark contrast to socialist blocks of flats and monuments to the thousands who fell during 20th century battles, creating a modern day city that is virtually unrivaled in the stories it tells about the past.


Museum of Warsaw

Found inside a collection of 11 Old Town tenements, this revamped museum's stored permanent collection (300,000 items total) consists of three new curated sections: The Things of Warsaw, Warsaw Data and The History of Tenement Houses. All museum items and exhibits are displayed over 21 thematic rooms. Every item has been carefully chosen and many played starring roles in the city's storied history also, the majority of the collection was gifted by the citizens of Warsaw after World War 2, hoping to preserve the cultural history of the city. Without doubt, there is plenty to see and enjoy. The very buildings the museum is located in are a sight to behold. Interestingly, despite severe damage during the war, many of the original aspects of the architecture remained intact and can be viewed during your visit. The museum is a truly amazing and kinaesthetic way of experiencing the events and understanding the processes that formed Warsaw as we know it today. Note, a ticket here also grants entry into the Praga District Museum, and if you're planning to visit all branches, then a combined ticket at 60/40zł can be purchased, allowing access to all within 7 days.

The Earliest Collection

While the formal “museum” did not emerge until the 18th century, collections of objects resembling this seemingly modern phenomenon date back thousands of years.

In ancient Babylon, Princess Ennigaldi&mdashthe daughter of King Nabonidus, who ruled the Neo-Babylonian Empire in the 6th century BC&mdashcollected and even curated Mesopotamian artifacts with origins spanning 1,500 years.

Located in the ruins of Nabonidus' palace, this curious collection was discovered in 1925 by archaeologist Leonard Woolley. After noticing that the objects&mdashwhich ranged from inscribed clay tablets to figurative sculpture fragments&mdashwere organized and even labeled with notes on their provenance, he deduced that he had stumbled upon the world's oldest museum.
