Great place to use up a spare 30mins or so. A short but fun time-travelling into the Warsaw of the past. It seems they change the photo selection for special exhibitions but I haven't chanced upon those. If you're in the vicinity of the Palace of Culture or the central station - pop by.

The 3D pictures and atmosphere makes you feel like you have walked back into time. Many of the pictures are in good conditions, a few are showing age, but it is fun to look at the peoples faces, clothing, transportation, entertainment of by-gone days. They are 3D and the show takes about 20 min. so it is worth dropping by... More

In addition to being a bit hard to find--you have to enter a small courtyard with minimal signage to show you the way--the photos are of fairly limited interest, somewhat repetitive, and the stereo effect is minimal. There are much better images of old Warsaw in several of the city's museums, e.g. Warsaw Uprising, and on the walls of the... More

This is the place you should visit, if you plan to go to Warsaw. The only one such a place in sito on the world. Amazing atmosphere, travel in time.

For a mere four zlotys, we had a wonderful twenty minutes looking at life in Warsaw from almost a hundred years ago. Stereopticon slides were shown to the accompaniment of period music in a quaint and quirky atmosphere. This is perhaps the best entertainment value in Warsaw, and I highly recommend a stop here!

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
