Came across this place in TripAdvisor and so I decided to check it out.....I have never seen such a machine and it is basically 3D glasses in the 1900's...It took no longer than 30 min so if you are in the area check it out....it is cheap and unique!

It's something completely different to your usual museums. Basically, you get to do what people before the war used to do as a fun activity. The room and the machinery are just as they were all those years ago and it's not a long stay, but it's cheap and it's something that you won't have a chance to do elsewhere.

The Warsaw Photoplasticon (Polish name:Fotoplastikon) - the only one in Poland still in a very good conditio. It was built at the beginning of 20th century. Great place to visit for all fans of old photographs from Warsaw and other interesting places.

Came across this quite by chance and decided to take a look. Amazing how this piece of equipment has lasted all the years! Very interesting photos of war torn Warsaw, photos seem to change monthly. A must if you have a spare half hour.

Awesome place to see oldtime photos, with an awesome background music.I took 30mins enjoying all photos and the music. It is so cheap (4 zlotys) and such a nice experience! Beware that it is not in the main road but inside a building. However, if you keep in mind the number «51», you will have no problem finding it. It... More

It takes 10 mins max to see it all. But the way its preserved with music at the background its absolutely worth popping in.

Quirky and inexpensive way to spend 15 minutes and 4 zlotny near the main train station in a little interior square. Old type moving panorama of 3D photos of War era Warsaw shows life and devastation during the era played to period music.

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
