A small unique museum. We saw cool 3D pictures of India. Today, Thursday, was free entry. You sit down and watch the pictures, about 15-20 minutes.

Hidden away off the main square at the back of a courtyard you'd be forgiven for missing it. Don't go in expecting too much, there's one room with a central column that you sit at and look through a view finder that shows you two...More

This was interesting but only if you're in the area. We were under the impression that this exhibit included over 5,000 photos with some photos of areas outside of Poland. However, we found that this exhibit has only 50 photos, all within the Warsaw area....More

We absolutely loved the Photoplasticon. A stunning vintage machine displaying amazing 3D plates of old Warsaw. It's housed upstairs in a fairly non descipt building but it's a real hidden gem. At the risk of sounding like I'm exaggerating it really is a must see...More

It is an absolute must see if you're in Warsaw. This photoplasticon has been here since 1905, and has been operating ever since. The photos shown change periodically, and are usually very interesting, especially if you are interested in history. You feel like you just...More
