“Different and interesting”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Well worth the detour just to get a peak of old Warsaw. Nice to get the 3d feel from old pictures. even the 18 year old enjoyed it!

The backyard could have been more pleasant, but not to be scared off by!

“Cool antique gadget”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Had a great time with my wife and son, he was 5 or 6 when we first visited this almost-hidden place. The photos offer a unique view on the life in Warsaw before and during the war. Stereoscopic, so you're standing right in the middle of it. Fantastic.

“Magic hidden attraction!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

It has been a surprise when I found out about this place. Photoplasticon is such an authentic touristic spot! There is a quite small room, in which you can see all sorts of amazing old pictures of Warsaw. The atmosphere is enhanced by music and charming entrance. Highly recommended!

“Hidden but worth visiting”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

If you're near the palace of culture and science (the big Stalinian building), just cross the street (using the underground walkways).

between 2 buildings you'll see a small sign "Photoplasticon"... just walk in the court, towards the end, you'll get in a small room where the photoplasticon machine is...

You'll see lots of old pictures that are projected in the machine and are sort of 3D.

WORTH the detour!

“Hidden gem in the Center”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

This is one of the not-too-many places where you can experience "old" Warsaw. Old photos, old machine... launch your imagination and enjoy!

And do not be scared by rather unfriendly courtyard you have to pass on your way to Fotoplastikon!
