If you are ready to come to Warsaw this is a must see attraction, as people know Eastern Europeans like spirits and this museum reveals how they like it! So I liked this visit a lot, and I can recommend it by my heart.

Interesting glimpse into the time. It's a small museum, which is actually welcome. Staff are nice.

Beautiful times, my children were shocked at how it was possible to live like this
