museum-of-illusions-in-warsawThe Museum of Illusions falls under the category of entertainment museums. Primarily, it focuses on fun and enjoyment. The museum is particularly suitable for families with children.


T he museum is located on the west side of the market square in the Old Town. Sooner or later, every tourist passes by here. Such museums are just right when it’s raining or when one wants to relax. We can’t necessarily recommend the museum because, on average, Warsaw tourists stay in the city for only 1.7 days, and during these short stays, there are better and more interesting exhibitions available.

This is not to imply that the Museum of Illusions is bad. It’s just not specific to Warsaw and is likely available in similar forms in other cities as well.

Admission price is a bit high

In our opinion, the admission price is set a bit too high, likely because it mainly targets foreign tourists. But we also understand that private museums have different financial considerations. After all, it’s meant to be profitable, and the staff probably receive higher wages here than in state-owned cultural institutions. At least, that’s what we hope!

Our tips in the area

T he highlight in the area is, of course, the Old Town and the Royal Route ending at Castle Square. You can also visit the Warsaw City Museum (also on the market square) or the museum in the Royal Castle.

We also recommend the observation terrace on the bell tower of St. Anna’s Church, which offers the most beautiful view of the city.

As far as gastronomy is concerned, there are over 30 cafés or restaurants only in the Old Town area, which is quite small. It should be added that the Old Town is not suitable for night life. There is also a lack of pubs or bars.

Look around the menu and you will find descriptions for all of these locations.

Public and private tours


The museum is barrier-free, but unfortunately the Old Town is not. Most of the Old Town streets and alleys are cobblestone. So if you are travelling with a wheelchair, it will be a bit bumpy.
