Museum of the Sochaczew Land and the Battlefield of the Bzura in Sochaczew is located in the historic building of the town hall.

It is the most magnificent museum of one battle in Poland. Our collection is the largest collection of weapons, equipment, uniforms and other memorabilia from the 1939 Campaign in Poland, presented at the permanent exhibition "Battlefield 1939-1945". The main exhibition also covers the theme of the entire Second World War, additionally exposed at the open-air exhibition in the museum's courtyard.

The Museum of the Sochaczew Land and the Battlefield of Bzura also collects monuments of material culture, documentations and archives, and conducts research related to the centuries-old history of Sochaczew and the Sochaczew Land. In the exhibition halls, we regularly present temporary exhibitions, where you can admire, among others, painting, handicraft or sculpture of Polish contemporary art, ethnography of the world and Poland. In the museum shop we sell books from various publishing houses, as well as our own publications on the history of the Sochaczew Land and the city of Sochaczew itself.

Museum of the Sochaczew Land and the Battlefield of Bzura presents exhibits on four main permanent exhibitions:

- Battlefield 1939-1945 - the greater part of the exhibition presented at the permanent exhibition are small arms weapons, equipment, repairs, uniforms, photos and documents of soldiers of the Polish Army fighting in the battle of the Bzura. These objects hidden on the battlefield by soldiers and local population, found by the Museum staff, donated to its collections by the families of those killed in battle and residents of Sochaczewska Land, create a collection - one of the richest in the country. Unique monuments of this exhibition are: wz. 30 ckm on the basis of three-legged anti-aircraft gunfire, machine gun "Chauchat" wz. 1915 used in battalions of National Defense, anti-tank cannon "Bofors" cal.37 mm wz. 36 with a sight, uniform of the captain of the 7th Regiment of Riflemen's Horse Rifles, as well as many other exhibits

- On the Bzura unchanged - "On the Bzura unchanged", it is the only permanent exhibition in Poland, concerning position fights of the First World War in western Mazovia. The stylized element of the trench, unique graphic design, numerous exhibits from the battlefields allow you to move in time and trace dramatic events from the front when fights in the trenches over 500,000 people fought against each other: winter infantry attacks, heavy artillery fire, murderous fire from machine guns and mortars, wave chlorine attacks. At the exhibition, we present a unique set of photographs and exhibits found on the battlefield of the Bzura and Rawka River. An important element is the authentic relations of soldiers, war correspondents, front poetry and memories of civil witnesses of events.

- Outdoor exhibition - In the courtyard of the Museum, we present an outdoor exhibition of Polish Army combat equipment. You can see here, among others: a barrel of 75 mm field cannon wz. 1897 French production, bulk dinghy, 75 mm field cannon wz. 1897 French production, T-34/85 tank, anti-aircraft gun caliber 85 mm wz. 1939, anti-tank cannon cal. 45 mm wz. 1942, MIG-21R aircraft and many other exhibits.

- The past in the hidden ground - Once upon a time, that is somewhere in the 10th - 12th century, near Płock, a young man lived whose main occupation was fighting ... He probably had a family: a wife and several children, lived in a one-room house, where there was a place to sleep, work, eat food, and where it must have found, especially in winter, a place for young farm animals. When it was necessary, he stood with the sword, shield and spear to fight. Maybe even in the prince's team? And when he reached the age, according to anthropologists adultus, or about 35-45 years, he died in battle. Or maybe he died a natural death? After all, people in the Middle Ages lived shortly, rarely lived 60 years. Was it really, or maybe a little different? Or maybe this man was involved in some craft or was a typical farmer? These and other questions are unlikely to find an answer. But the skeleton of this man, equipped with a sword and a spear blade, can be seen at the archaeological exhibition "The hidden past - Archeology of the Sochaczew land" in the Sochaczew Land Museum and the Battlefield of the Bzura in Sochaczew.
