Museum of the History of Polish Jews
what to SEE & DO


The shell of the building is muted, even austere, underscoring its affinity with the shape of the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes.  Clad in copper and glass, the unusual façade bears a pattern composed of the word Polin in Hebrew and Latin letters, recalling the legend about the arrival of Jews in Poland.

In contrast with sober exterior, the building’s remarkable interior consists of massive, undulating walls cutting through the height and length of the building to create the Museum’s dynamic Main Hall. This space symbolizes the deep chasm running through the history of Polish Jews - a break, but not an end.

Through a variety of cultural and educational activities, the Museum will showcase the diversity of Jewish culture, traditional and contemporary, self-evident and unexpected. The museum is an unique environment in which to explore and discover, a welcoming place to get to know one another, to foster tolerance and mutual respect.

Museum facilities include temporary exhibition halls, a 480 seat auditorium, a children’s area, Educational Center, Resource Center, restaurant, café, gift shop.
