Museum of Life under Communism is a unique place in Warsaw, which takes you back in time to experience everyday realities and absurdities of the 1944-1989 communist era in Poland. What brings backs bittersweet memories to older generations of Poles will turn into a fascinating discovery for those who didn't have a chance to experience it. Thanks to genuine relics, artefacts and everyday life stories you will realize how different life was then. Younger visitors may be surprised to discover social life and popular culture before they got dominated by the Internet and modern technologies.

Family tickets, group tickets as well as tickets with discounts for Big Family Card and Varsovian Card ar available only in the museum ticket office.

In case tickets are not abailable on line you can purchase them in the museum ticket office.
