visit the Warsaw's Museum of the History of Polish Jews - Polin with a private guide


The Museum of the History of Polish Jews opened its doors to the public in April 2013. For over a year it functioned as a cultural and educational center with a rich cultural program, including temporary exhibitions, films, debates, workshops, performances, concerts, lectures and much more. On October 28, 2014 the Core Exhibition, presenting the thousand-year history of Polish Jews was officially opened.

The Museum stands in what was once the heart of Jewish Warsaw - an area which the Nazis turned into the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. This significant location, coupled with the Museum's proximity to the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes, demanded extreme thoughtfulness on the part of the building's designers, who carefully crafted a structure that has become a symbol of the new face of Warsaw.

Itinerary

The Core Exhibition is a journey through 1000 years of the history of Polish Jews - from the Middle Ages until today.

The exhibition is made up of 8 galleries, spread over an area of 4000 sq. m. , presenting the heritage and culture of Polish Jews, which still remains a source of inspiration for Poland and for the world. The galleries portray successive phases of history, beginning with legends of arrival, the beginnings of Jewish settlement in Poland and the development of Jewish culture. They show the social, religious and political diversity of Polish Jews, highlighting dramatic events from the past, the Holocaust, and concluding with contemporary times.

Core Exhibition Galleries:
1. The Forest
2. First Encounters (960-1500)
3. Paradisus Iudaeorum (1569-1648)
4. Into the Country (1648-1772)
5. Encounters with Modernity (1772-1914)
6. On the Jewish Street (1918-1939)
7. Holocaust (1939-1945)
8. Postwar years (1945 to the present)

A Recent Review of this tour

Nothing short of amazing! We spent at least 6 hours with Ewa and she kept us captivated by her knowledge and wanting more. Exceptional English and her knowledge of Polish history was impressive. We really cannot say enough good things and if you are coming to Warsaw I cannot imagine there would be a better guide.
