Something I had never heard of before and would not expect to see anywhere. An interesting discovery and experience.

Worth stopping off to see. Shows how Warsaw was years ago. Good collection of photographs. You only need 20 minutes here, and it lies off the Main Street.

Well worth the detour just to get a peak of old Warsaw. Nice to get the 3d feel from old pictures. even the 18 year old enjoyed it! The backyard could have been more pleasant, but not to be scared off by!

Had a great time with my wife and son, he was 5 or 6 when we first visited this almost-hidden place. The photos offer a unique view on the life in Warsaw before and during the war. Stereoscopic, so you're standing right in the middle of it. Fantastic.

It has been a surprise when I found out about this place. Photoplasticon is such an authentic touristic spot! There is a quite small room, in which you can see all sorts of amazing old pictures of Warsaw. The atmosphere is enhanced by music and charming entrance. Highly recommended!

If you're near the palace of culture and science (the big Stalinian building), just cross the street (using the underground walkways). between 2 buildings you'll see a small sign "Photoplasticon"... just walk in the court, towards the end, you'll get in a small room where the photoplasticon machine is... You'll see lots of old pictures that are projected in the... More

This is one of the not-too-many places where you can experience "old" Warsaw. Old photos, old machine... launch your imagination and enjoy! And do not be scared by rather unfriendly courtyard you have to pass on your way to Fotoplastikon!

It is not a modern, stylized place - it is a real, preserved one, with original equipments dated to beginning of previous century, with unique athmosphere of mystery and friendly staff.

This gives you a real sense of entertainment in a different age. Viewing the three-demensional photographs through the binocular viewer in the place they were viewed for the past 100 years. It takes about twenty minutes to view and is well worth your time.
