I have taken Teven's suggestion and ordered 2 tickets for the English tour on the Emanuel Ringelblum Oneg Shabbat Archives.

This was not an easy process. If you are not fluent in Polish you need to have Google translate available or do it on Chrome as it will automatically translate for you. While the narrative about the exhibit is available in English at the page to order the tickets is only in Polish at either site the one above or the one in Teven's original email below.  Be persistent and keep the translation page open. They first ask if you are registered with them on the left side if not fill out the right side not registered. They are only asking for the usual information, name, address, email address phone number and cell phone. They also ask for business name above the request for address. I just put my name in that spot and it worked.  Then a page of agreements that you read and understood (grin) their contract, takes you too another website if paying by credit card and the information card number, expiry date and three digit code on the back. You get an email that it is being processed and when you submit the CC information another minute and the email was sent to me with the tickets to print off.

Subject: [Warsaw-Discuss] Information about Emanuel Ringelblum Archives

This post is information about the Emanuel Ringelblum Archives, which are part of the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw. Some of you may have seen the play, Time Capsule in a Milk Can at the IAJGS conference in 2014 or heard the keynote address by Samuel Kassow at the IAJGS conference in 2016
Here is information about the Oneg Shabbat Archives:
Only 35 people can visit the exhibit, “What we could not shout out to the world,” at one time. The exhibit is open M-F 9:00 to 18:00, and on Sunday from 10:00 to 18:00. Last entry is at 17:00. Guides tours in English are given M-F at 11:00, and in Polish M-F at 14:00. The entry fees ranges from 7 PLN to 30 PLN. Admission is free on Sundays.

[Please note: I am just sharing this information which I obtained from the JHI website. I don't know if this exhibit is included in the POLIN museum/membership fee. If anyone has more details, please share them as well.]
