We visited Warsaw at last in Poland, and hardly had a day. I was upset because most of the museum are closed on Monday which it was. God however was kind enough, next day was armed force day in Poland. To honour that, the Polish Army museum was open till 7pm and that too for free entry. At least, I did not come back from Warsaw seeing nothin !!

This is a museum  documenting the military  history of Poland, created in 1920. It occupies a wing of the building of the Polish National Museum and is closed both Monday and Tuesday. It’s Warsaw’s second largest museum and the largest collection of military objects in Poland. The collection illustrates a thousand years of Polish military history – from the 10th century to the Second World War.

This has been an absolutely different kind of  museum experience because I have never been to an army museum. My idea of war weapons and war vehicles is absolutely built on as the movies depict. It is awestrucking  to stand in front of things that can kill people.. and change history..and maybe from army point of view to save people as well..

The forecourt of the museum houses several dozen armoured vehicles, artillery pieces and aircraft, an eclectic mix of Soviet, western and Polish equipment, mostly from the World War II era.

The indoor galleries shows the military history of Poland since the 10th century, and are particularly strong on Poland’s era of military greatness in the 17th century, through the decline into anarchy in the 18th century. Several rooms display  the Napoleonic Wars, and the national uprisings of Poland.

The  Museum of the Polish Army announced was supposed to choose an architectural design for its new premises and surrounding area. in the historic Citadel located in Warsaw’s Żoliborz district. The new museum is expected to be a modern multimedia institution similar in concept to the highly successful Warsaw Uprising Museum. However, still it is in the old place. I will totally recommend this for the travellers because of the polish history in World war II.
