If you are looking for an exhibition, a film, a book, or a talk about any Polish historical topic, visit the website of Dom Spotkań z Historią (History Meeting House).

For example, not too long ago, they organized a great exhibition of post-war pictures from 1947 by Henry N. Cobb in colour (!) – I must say it really awoke a strange feeling to see the same destroyed Warsaw of that time in this strange, almost modern way. Some time ago, they had an exhibition, “Polacy z wyboru” (English “Poles of their own choice”). Most of their projects are accompanied by publications (available for purchase in their shop).

DSH has a wide range of school programmes – not necessarily interesting for visitors, but it is nice to know that the children are taught a new way of perceiving history – through, for example, urban games. Together with a wide range of all-historical topics and the way they are discussed, this place is a must for all people interested in Polish history. The entrance is always free, and all exhibitions are translated into English, which is always a good start for Polish history.

Until 4 June 2024, there is an exhibition of the works of an outstanding photographer Chris Niedenthal, marking fifty years of his career as a photojournalist. DSH will present more than 200 pictures from the author’s vast collection of hundreds of thousands of photos.
