I learnt about this museum from a blog I subscribe to and knew it was a place my husband would enjoy as it has many military objects of interest to him. Initially the Napoleonic objects were the draw although the main focus is World War II. Not easy to spot but so worth seeking out. Opposite Hyde Park. Limited hours... More

My husband wanted to visit to research his father's Polish military record. Michael gave us a guided tour and took time to show us all of the interesting exhibits. He also provided us with a copy of documents showing father in law's name and regiment and gave us advice on how to obtain further information. A very moving and emotional... More

A little hard to find maybe - even a chap in the embassy a few doors along we asked didn't know where it was.... More

After some searching for the adress I was welcomed by 3 members of the staff and one took me for a guide along the museum. There were many interesting items and the guide could tell me a lot more. An interesting piece of history lies here. Not to big but perfectly to spend 2 hrs.

Even if you didn't think you were interested in Polish or military history, you soon will be. Very welcoming and dedicated team. I learnt so much and enjoyed the guided tour. A real gem.
