What people are saying about Warsaw

Mary was a great guide - very informative and friendly. We travelled in Chopin’s footsteps all around the town and learned all about his life. Would recommend

Interesting glimpse into the time. It's a small museum, which is actually welcome. Staff are nice.

Nine galleries to see so it takes a long time - 2 hours won’t do it justice.

Excellent experience. Give yourself lots of time. Well worth the money.

Fantastic exhibit on the history of Jews in Europe.
