Museum of the History of Polish Jews (POLIN) – photo gallery

Warsaw’s most recent museum is located at Ul. Mordechaja Anielewicza 6, on the green square close to the old monument to the ghetto uprising and is dedicated to the history of Jews in Poland.

The whole venture was funded partly by the government (construction of the building) and partly by private individuals and institutions (the exhibitions). The building opened in April 2013 but the exhibitions were not completed until late this year. We visited on November 15th.

Both the building and the exhibitions are very interesting. We had a tour, which lasted nearly two hours and was a good introduction. I’d recommend doing the same and then going back again to wander round at your own pace and get into more detail of the parts that interest you.

Here is a gallery of photos:
