You will not spend a lot of time in this small museum, but you will be not disappointed you visit it!
Old Polish architecture, castles and palaces looks as real, only small.
If you walk along Krakowskie Przedmiescie, please, visit this Museum!

I really like buildings' miniatures and the Warsaw place got my attention presenting the miniatures of old buildings which don't exist anymore. It's an amazing opportunity to look back to the past and see what the wars and time have destroyed... It's a pity that the museum is very small and not having yet too many objects - hopefully it'll be still growing. As of now I think it's not really worth its price, for the time we spend inside.

The attraction is really just a few model buildings in average condition (they are nice models to be fair, but have seen better days) which are presented with some cards in English that explain their context.

There's not much to it and as other reviewers have noted it's not much more than 20 minutes worth of activity. My young kids were disappointed as they were expecting more of a model village of miniature city.

Not terrible, but not exactly great either.

Saw the sign, paid my zln 14 and headed to the courtyard to be met with a number of models and a 3d photo exhibition. To be honest I was expecting a full on model village. To be fair if you read the signs by the replicated buildings it is educational and for the price wasn't totally disappointed just a bit mystified by it all.

First of all the suggested 1-2 hours is really misleading; it takes max 20’. Located outdoors, the miniatures need maintenance and some serious cleaning. The whole place shouts out ‘amateur’ and although the entrance ticket is cheap, I wouldn’t recommend it.

Spread out in a "garden," the miniatures didn't look very impressive in broad daylight.
I thought it was an indoor museum with good lighting for extra dramatic effects.
The dull miniatures would have been looking impressive indoors - they were all sprinkled with dust.
Also, the entrance fee was highly overpriced considering they were all out in the backyard, like a collection of abandoned and unattended college project.
It's not worth it.

I don't know where the people that visited this place before me have been, but there was nothing indoor. Although I recognize some of the minitiature buildings on the pictures, I think they choose to move everything outdoor. It's small, just a few miniatures and a few 3D prints. We have seen the whole miniature park in about 15 minutes. Tickets are 14 PLN (about 3,50 euro's), but even for that small amount it's too expensive.

I know it takes a huge amount of work to build all the miniatures, but it's just not fun enough. It's nothing compared to all the other miniature places I have been.

This is tucked away behind Plac Bankowy so is easy to miss, but if you find it, it is a veritable gem.

Beautifully well done scale models of pre-War Warsaw buildings.

I strongly recommend this place

What a find! Friends had recommended we visit but I was initially sceptical due to the title of the museum itself. I imagined a tacky little outdoor park with model railways packed with bored adults entertaining their loud children.

How different it was to my perception!!! The exhibits (not just miniatures of fabulous long lost buildings of the past) are housed in a magnificent Art Nouveau building in the centre of the city. The former Landau Bank escaped war time destruction of any note, with only the expansive glass in thr ceilings having been replaced. The wooden clad columns, the marble stairs and the elegant offices of the main bank all remain in perfect tribute to the architect who designed them.

The approach is relaxed and informal. A small cafe utilises antique furniture in the bank's former lobby while music drifts around the space adding to the ambience. The staff are helpful and friendly. One of the two on duty spoke very good English (a welcome bonus for me).

On the ground floor, the miniature reconstructions of former palaces and architectural gems of significance were well described in 3 languages - Polish, English and 1 other (I believe Spanish as a previous reviewer has noted).

The upper floor housed a exhibition of antique stereoscopic "3d" photographs of the former glory of prewar Warsaw. The scenes bring to life the city's social and architectural history. These exhibits had explanations in Polish and English.

A modern highlight of the museum (at extra cost) is a small room of virtual reality scenes recreated of different views from around the Saski Palace. Unfortunately, the brief descriptions of the scenes to expect and instructions are only in Polish. Just pick up the headsets/masks and explore - fyi there are usually two scenes/views per headset.

Don't forget to visit the bank's vaults to see where the bank was robbed in the 1920s. One of the cashiers kindly took us to the room and provided a short history. Unfortunately for me, it was the Polish speaking one. Luckily, my husband later translated snippets of the facts.

Well worth a visit if you are near Plac Bankowy, the Opera House or the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
