It’s moved! There’s still some stuff outside the building, so I went to have a look and was sent on my way be security pretty rapidly. They need to update the new location online.
It's surprisingly more people don't visit this outdoor museum of military craft. It is right next to the national museum and it is free. Definitely worth a walk through to see tanks, missile launchers, planes and helicopters.
There are some nice machines like the IS-2, Mig-29 and Il-2, but the exponats aren't in great condition and in general, it's not a particularly impressive war museum.

The indoor exhibiton is closed, but there's a lot to see outside. Everything from planes, millitary helicopters and tanks. Perfect for people who love historic millitary vehicles and weapons. It is also free entrance to the outdoor exhibition.
Excellent place for aviation fanatics and photographs. It includes a large collection of old, Soviet era, planes and helicopters.

The museum is worth of visiting. A lot of stuff to see and very interesting. Price is cheap for family of 4 only 40 zlots. Loved it.
The museum is very best, the location is perfect. Here you can the old weapons of 2nd world war. A good memory to see in Warsaw. If you have free time than this is the best place to spend a good time. Recommended.
To be honest?
Not enough vehicles, and not all of them are in good shape. Also, there's not much to see from the inside. A Russian cargoplane and the 'Kubuś' armoured car. I would be happy to see more.

A walk through a memory lane. For a history fan a great review but by today's standards a bit static
Waiting for the new building and end with scarce space.
Nice place two floor of displays from ancient times to about ww2. Large amount of military hardware outside to have a look at. All info available in English.
Perhaps if you are an enthusiast of the military history this museum can be interesting for you. Significantly below my expectations for a modern museum. I do not recommend it.

Read more »ponry of tanks, rockets, bombs, jets and planes.....a good collection of the beauty of war! Good to walk around and take a selfie....... I pretended I was in Ukraine, and some actually believed me!
To go into the museum itself, it costs 20 Zloty (4 Euros), a very reasonable price.
The museum is very well spaced out and you head in one main direction and end of on a good tour of various campaigns that Poland was involved in........from the Warsaw uprising, the WW2 campaigns (In the UK as well-Polish air bombers), the fights with old foes like Russia (and Ukraine, which was surprising to me), .......and a general overview of the style of the uniforms and weapons of those times.... its quite extensive and very informative, with descriptions in Polish, obviously, and in English.
It was a long walk around, over an hour or more, and it was very good.
The only negative I might have is that there could be some interactive side to the museum, something more hands on - try on some similar styled war time uniforms, or hold some replica weapons, etc, etc.....
Overall, well worth a look, if for nothing else to see and learn about some of Poland's long war time history.
Very nice military museum. It has a lot of military equipment and vehicles from the polish and Soviet army. It's free , if you are in Warsaw you should take a visit , it is worth it especially if you like military vehicles and military history
Good display outside of planes, helicopters and fighter planes didnt go inside.
A very interesting museum, even for a person not so familiar with army topics, as it shows the changes throughout the centuries. There is also a fascinating room related to exotic weapons.
Not a bad museum. It would be nice to have narratives with the artifacts inside, what they were used for or the story behind them. This is more around the WW2 exhibit.

Nice mix of tanks and aircraft in the outdoor display.
I found the outside area nicer than inside, but it’s a personal opinion. It’s a must visit.
I was there 10 years ago and I still consider it one of the highlights of my trip ..... it was brilliant.
Outstanding collection of physical war planes, a great attraction for older kids
Nice collection of machinery outside. Museum closes at 16 so wasn't able to explore the inside.
Nice place, easy to wander around and to see a couple of interesting aircrafts, helicopters, tanks etc. Good place to visit with kids!
Lots of fun seeing all these tanks and aircraft, and Polish military history.
