  • The Museum of modern art in Warsaw in March 2017 submitted in two pavilions, one near the central railway station, the second on the banks of the River Vistula, not far from the Centre of science of Copernicus and the University Library so that you can connect a visit. Up to 18.06.2017 in a new Pavilion of the exhibition is dedicated to the symbol of the capital-Sirene, visit worth it Yes and admission is free! Cute atmosphere of contemporary Museum!

  • Bardzo malutka wystawa,
