The main exhibition consists of three narrative blocks: "The Road to War", "The Terror of War" and "The Long Shadow of War". The exhibitions illustrate the Polish experience of war, against a background of the wider European and world context.
The first of the thematic sections of the exhibition, entitled "The Road to War", is devoted to the genesis of the conflict.
The dominant theme of the section of the exhibition entitled "The Horror of War" is the fate of ordinary people.
The third part of the exhibition is a section entitled "The Long Shadow of War".
