Founded in 1936, the Museum of Warsaw boasts the largest collections of artefacts related to the history of Poland’s capital, its holdings currently comprising over 300,000 exhibits.
The main premises are located inside eleven historic burgher houses along the northern façade of the Old Town Market Square. In 2014-2017, these were thoroughly renovated, preserving, however, the original interior layout, along with seventeenth-century-style wooden ceilings, wall paintings and vestibule details.
The permanent exhibition, The Things of Warsaw, features over 7,000 items, including artworks and objects of daily use from the fourteenth through to the twentieth centuries. The intention of the curators was to allow them to speak as witnesses and participants of the city’s history, thus allowing each visitor to use them as a springboard for their own unique take on the story of Warsaw.
The exhibition also features infographic sections, Warsaw Data and History of Old Town Houses. Here visitors will learn about Warsaw’s development across the ages, its past and present residents, its most interesting architectural features, and the changes undergone by a number of iconic Warsaw buildings. 
The Museum also has a café, a cinematheque screening films about Warsaw, and a library with a special reading room with books and resources on Warsaw. There is a viewing platform on the fifth floor with a magnificent view of the Old Town Market Square.
The building is adapted to accessibility requirements for wheelchair users at levels -2, -1, 0 and 1.
