Visit the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews on a 3-hour guided tour and discover the Polish Jewish history, including the horrors of the Holocaust.

Itinerary

Meet your guide and the rest of your group at 3pm in the lobby of the Polin Museum, from where you’ll embark on a moving journey through the more than one thousand years of Polish Jewish history. The Polin Museum is the only museum dedicated to the history of Polish Jews and was erected on what used to be the Warsaw Ghetto.

The glass structure of the museum is astonishing and well worth contemplating before stepping inside. The building was designed by Rainer Mahhlamakki, a renowned Finnish architect. Once inside, plunge into a guided tour and learn about the origins of the Jewish settlers in Europe, their role in the country’s politics, economy and society. Warsaw once accommodated the largest Jewish community in Europe. Walk through the various galleries dedicated to the different periods, including the Holocaust gallery, which depicts the Nazi occupation of Poland and its tragic consequences: only 10% of Jews living in Poland survived the genocide. 

Although the Jewish community in Poland is closely linked to the Holocaust, the Polin Museum also tells the stories of those who miraculously survived World War II.

A guided tour of the Polin Museum is a must for any visitor who wants to uncover the origins and role of the Jews in Poland throughout the centuries.
