If You want to see Warsaw in old pictures, it's a briliant idea to go to Photoplasticon. Good for young and old, women and men.

This is a real photoplastycon! You have to see it while in Warsaw as this is something you only see on some old movies. Entrance fee is a bargain. Everytime you go there you see something different.

As other reviewers point out, it's hard to find but well worth the effort. Very old style interior (the sign on the door says it has been there since 1901) with vintage music playing in the background. You pick a seat around the big carousel and look through the viewer to see 3-D effect presentation of vintage photos - ranging... More

After reading previous reviews thought it would be images of old Warsaw. They change the photographs apparently and we had 1960s New York. Nothing against 1960s New York but of no interest at all considering the city we were in. 51 is not opposite the train station it is more opposite the Palace of Culture for help in finding it.

It's impossible to find if you are not searching for it. When you come into the old, bad kept building you start to think..'is it really here..?'. But, then you get there and there it is, a very old roulette with dozens of different epochs pictures of Warsaw. It's a small room, with nice old music that makes you feel... More

This series of old photographs gave me a sense of what Warsaw looked like pre WWII, in a way that may have been impossible. I came away with a newfound respect for the city. You sit on a stool in front of a viewfinder and look through the lenses so see mostly black and white photographs of street views, social... More

This is the only pre-WWII Photoplasticon in Warsaw and one of only few in Poland. It is placed inside one of buildings that survived Warsaw demolishon by Nazists in 1944 - so the place has amazing atmosphere. It;s in the city center (close to Central Railway Station) but not that easy to find. Free entrance! Many seats, no waiting. Most... More

As soon as there is on entrance fee on sunday, it's a good day to visit this exhibition. There is a small room with chairs and some pairs of viewing lenses. There are shown old stereoscopic pictures of warsaw and suburbs. It impresses when you realize that this popular nowadays "3D" was invented in the 19th century.

Do you want to see how Warsaw looks after or during the WWII? It's a great opportunity to explore it in Photoplasticon! It's an amazing, vintage place in Warsaw. Well maybe it's not easy to find, but when you find it, you'll be awed!
