Polish Army Museum

The Polish Army Museum traces Poland's military history from the earliest armor to the modern fighter planes used in World War II.

The Polish Army Museum opened in 1920 and has remained in the same location ever since. In all this time, Warsaw's history has gone through crucial moments; war technology has advanced, and weapons have evolved. All this is reflected in Poland's most important military museum.

What to see at the Polish Army Museum

The most fascinating part of this museum is the extensive display of tanks and warplanes on the lawn. This collection features vehicles from World War II and earlier periods, making it Poland's largest assortment of military artifacts.

From ammunition and armament to USSR tanks, uniforms, banners, insignia, medals, and a wealth of archives and photographs, the museum serves as a comprehensive repository of military history.

Venturing into the past, visitors can check out the medieval armor and helmets that once played crucial roles in pivotal Warsaw battles throughout history. Additionally, the main hall hosts a life-sized representation of a 17th-century hussar, adding an immersive touch to the museum experience.
