The Army Museum (Muzeum Armii Krajowej)

The Museum of the Home Army was opened July 31, 2004, during the presidency of Lech Kaczynski, who thought the opening of this museum was a matter of honor. The idea to create it originated from the inhabitants of Warsaw in 1950, but at that time it was impossible for political reasons. It was only in 1983 they managed to obtain permission from the authorities to create at least one branch in the Historical Museum of Warsaw.
The Museum of the Home Army was built on the spot where in 1904 until the outbreak of war was a tram power station. In 1944 somewhere here, began the Warsaw Uprising, which ended tragically for the insurgents. The German invaders leveled to the ground the historic centre of the capital of Poland, killing more than two hundred thousand soldiers and civilians.
4-storey museum houses about 750 different items, namely weapon that was used by the rebels, letters of citizens, captured German uniforms, communications equipment and radio stations, and much more. There are more than 1,000 photos. The area which is occupied by the exhibition takes 3000 square meters.
At present, The Warsaw Uprising Museum is one of the most visited tourist places.
