This is one of those "depends on how much free time you have" kind of things. After you've seen the palace, maybe explored a few parks or museums, check this place out. It's just a room where you sit and look into 3D viewing machines at very old photos. Each photo has a description, and lasts about 5-10 seconds. When we were there it was photos of Amsterdam (people, boats, lots of bridges). They told us that they have a huge collection, and change the photo daily.

My favorite part was in the shared courtyard -- an unrelated gingerbread shop that sells edible and decorative gingerbread, with a REALLY nice proprietor.

Unless we missed something completely this is definitely the smallest museum we have ever visited. But it was very interesting and funny to see they actually had stereoscopic images back in the early days. The entrance fee was a couple of zloty and they actually accepted our VISA debit card. We weren't there pretty long, but we enjoyed it.

Most people have never experienced a place such as this. It has a picture viewer of the way Warsaw looked many decades ago. The machine who's name I forget is the way people from about 90 years ago viewed pictures in a public setting.

NOT TO BE MISSED. Easy to reach but not well signed so make sure you prepare yourself before you visit as it is not easy to find. But you will experience something you cannot experience in other places. Back in time when cinema and photography was in its early days. All authentic and impressive

This is like instagram 100 years ago. Step back in time before catching your train. Just opposite the central station.
