A small unique museum. We saw cool 3D pictures of India. Today, Thursday, was free entry. You sit down and watch the pictures, about 15-20 minutes.

Hidden away off the main square at the back of a courtyard you'd be forgiven for missing it. Don't go in expecting too much, there's one room with a central column that you sit at and look through a view finder that shows you two...More

We visited it due to good tripadvisor rating, with big expectations. It is not bad, but also not great...you can view some pictures about old warsow, but they do not have a story or some details...

This is an old machine working like it was in the 20's. We just can imagine the wonder then when people watch this kind of 3D photos. Not to miss when visiting warsaw.

This was interesting but only if you're in the area. We were under the impression that this exhibit included over 5,000 photos with some photos of areas outside of Poland. However, we found that this exhibit has only 50 photos, all within the Warsaw area....More

We absolutely loved the Photoplasticon. A stunning vintage machine displaying amazing 3D plates of old Warsaw. It's housed upstairs in a fairly non descipt building but it's a real hidden gem. At the risk of sounding like I'm exaggerating it really is a must see...More
