  • The Museum with interesting exhibitions and folklore-we were at the exhibition "summer 88" the old days, as well as costumes from all over Europe very beautifully presented at the top of the Museum. On Thursday, free entrance.

We saw the clothing of our ancestors, their also accessories for work. The Museum is also the exposure as well as several associated with Mexico because Mexico issued also called the Altar of the dead. We were also at a time when the hosted icons from Greece and Cyprus.

  • Peculiar museum. Most of the Polish ethnography on the second floor is mostly a display of wooden and woven farm implements, arranged en masse. It is part of the permanent exhibition. The main floor permanent collection has bits and bobs from cultures around the world, in no discernible order. It notes that someone donated a large collection of Polish textiles from one region, but only a couple of small pieces are displayed. Temporary exhibits include Hungarian Love, which is mostly photos, and an Erotica show. I realize that they don't have much money, but rethinking the permanent collection display is certainly in order. Why would I go to an ethnographic museum in Warsaw and not see some depth on Polish textiles and costumes, if they have them? I would give this small museum a miss.
  • Really priceless. They are saving very old things.
  • An excellent, beautifully set out museum. The costumes upstairs would really appeal to kids, and the Hungarian Love Exhibition was hugely entertaining.
  • very nice atmosphere different cultures.
  • Very nice and interesting museum. Really nice exhibition. Not too big.

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
