Firstly, on a chilly day, it was heavenly to find ourselves in wonderfully warm surroundings.
I laughed as we turned up thinking my husband had taken me to a tour of the city's sewage system, but in fact it's a really interesting and informative place to spend a couple of hours (or three in our case).
Obviously a popular place for school trips as there were a few groups of children there during our visit, but the space is pretty vast and you can almost get lost wandering around in the warm, womb-like softly lit chambers. I almost fell asleep in the cinema room!

Visited the place due to high ratings on both trip advisor and google - huge mistake. It’s advertised as interactive yet majority of interactive objects are either not functioning or don’t fill the definition of ‘interactive’. Additionally the attractions feel cheap and the scientific value of the display is close to middle-school geography classes. I would only recommend taking a kid there if neither you nor your spouse have any knowledge regarding geography and biology.

I didnt had any idea of what this was all about when I paid myself in here last week. I had a thing in my head that it was a memorial water tower and that was all.

Then I realize it was a museum about everything who have with water an do.

First of all buidings and wall around is nice. Will post some examples after.

It was a very long fountain where it comes cymbols and letters down with the water. Not good enough camera to get really how it was for my eyes to see it.

Then in the exhibiton part there was so much info that half could be enough.

In one room there was movie from some recording under water to see how is it with Bismark and other big ships.

Story about what living in the sea.

A part where You can see the biggest town in world and how much water ONE person using pr day.

There was a enviroment part.

One big model of the buidlings in town and with light on very cool. If You pressed the button it will light up on the model and You could see exact there it was.

A model of how the working room are in a submarine boat.

And much much more not a typical museum in my head but at the same time so important to see what water means for us on the planet.

Not so expensive think the ticket price was 55 zloti and you did go around after a blue tick line on the floor.

I am happy I used some hours here on my last day in Wrocklaw. Took tram nr 3 or was it 5 close to the road museum are in and then I walked the last 500 meters or less. I didnt count meter.

Very original place, the subject matter is presented in a rather interesting way, many multimedias, although there could be more interactive objects. Overall, it's worth coming here.

A fantastic exhibition all about water and everything to do with water, the water sculptures by the entrance are very impressive, we all enjoyed the whole experience. We went originally to go and buy tickets on the gate, but they were full and could not sell us a ticket. So later on another day, we booked in advance on line, with a specified entrance time, this was no issue to do. On our arrival there was a long queue of people trying to get in, but as we had tickets bought in advance online we just went to the head of the queue and were let in. So if you are intending to go, book online. Inside the premises is a pleasant cafe, worth a visit. You will not regret going.

I am a bit disappointed - I was waiting for visit really excited but inside I found not that much. I can agree that for kids it is a really educational place however, you can only read informations the same way as on wikipedia and if you took your headset you can watch and hear short films. Not as interesting for adults as expected.

First off I would agree that this is a good exhibit for kids and very educational. For more mature adults and foreigners I don’t think enough attention has been paid to how much standing is involved at many of the interactive exhibits. Polish and English seem the only ones offered and some of the English versions didn’t work. Also in many cases the interactivity is merely pushing a button and that shouldn’t count. The best thing we found was the one about the various shipwrecks and the depths they lie at now. Very much worth the entry fee but definitely more for families with children.

Very informative, very good quality and looked amazing. Family-friendly, nice atmosphere and good technology. They had a coatroom and really interesting display. The only fault was that it was maybe too much information for one sitting.

Amazing place! I learned a lot. I could spend the whole day there! (but been there only for 2hrs). You will be amused, amazed, shocked, moved and definitely will broaden your knowledge. Not only for kids, but also for adults, lots of interactive exhibits, multimedia,gallery of photos, etc. It's a must see for all!
