We welcome you to POLIN Museum!
This is the official English page of POLIN Museum, in Warsaw, Poland.
Facing the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes, POLIN Museum is located on the site of the Warsaw ghetto and prewar Jewish neighborhood. POLIN Museum restores the memory of what was once the largest Jewish community in the world. At the heart of POLIN Museum is a multimedia narrative exhibition presenting the history of Polish Jews, a journey of a thousand years. POLIN Museum recovers the historic diversity of Poland and stimulates dialogue in the spirit of mutual understanding and respect. The idea to create a Museum of the History of Polish Jews emerged at the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland. Since its grand opening in 2014, POLIN Museum has won the 2016 European Museum of the Year Award, 2016 European Museum Academy Prize, and many other prizes.
