It was 8 zloty for me...maybe because I'm a senior....but lively and inquisitive. Yes, step back into the 50's. This place hasn't been upgraded since. The buildings and exhibits were mostly worn an dingy. If there were any second languages in the descriptions it was English but slight and badly worn and not descriptive. The exhibits were really interesting though: the current exhibit of cars and prop vehicles from movies like the Delorean from "Back to the Future" and the Batmobile. This museum is from the Polish point of view with motorcycles, vehicles and electronics designed and built in Poland. There were some wonderful scale models of equipment, planes, steel mining and smelting and coal mining operations that were really neat. I never knew how the iron age cultures got the iron. A nifty model showed that. There were some more contemporary exhibits of alternative energy sources but not curated well in alternative languages. This museum could use some serious up-dating of the content displays, the museum guide materials and the condition of the building as well.

Total a-list must visit. The Technology museum on the GF is fun quaint and interesting but on a clear day or night the views from the 30th floor viewing level ( and bar) are amazing. 15 Zloty - under £3.

Go for it and enjoy the town view of the 33rd floor, can't remember the price but like almost everything in Warsaw it's quite cheap!

The Palace of Culture & Science built in the 1950s (as a gift from Stalin!) is the main landmark in Warsaw. In the evenings it is lit up in different colour lights.
Take a lift to 30th floor for 20 zloty for great views of Warsaw.
