  • Really this is not a Museum, just a bookstore for architects, designers with a small art space (corridor 7 meters) and a coffee shop. The store has books in English and Polish languages. Pleasant interior and coffee ️ ☕

  • Unfortunately, I am very disappointed in what I saw there. I expected something interesting, what you can "hang the eye"-nothing found. A total waste of time. Two pros for the fact that although as a museum not checks, this is a great place for people who want to silence. The other cool device in the building. ;)

  • I loved this place, it was really fun to go to and walk around. Worth it for 2 hours.
  • I went to the museum and the girl at the front desk told me they had no exhibitions for the moment. WTF. A museum with no exhibitions? It must be a total success.
  • Bardzo malutka wystawa,
  • Bardzo zadbane miejsce
  • Super
