Why do we recommend the museum only conditionally?
The Old Town is a place, which you’re likely to pass by. But what to do if it’s raining or you want to visit a simple and amusing museum? In these situations, the Museum of Illusions is just right. We can’t really recommend the museum because Warsaw tourists spend an average of 1.7 days here, and for such a short stay there are better and more interesting exhibitions.
This is not to say that the Museum of Illusions is bad. It’s just that it’s not specific to Warsaw and certainly exists in a similar form in other cities.
Entrance fee a little too high
In our opinion, the entrance fee is a bit too high, which is probably due to the fact that it is mainly aimed at foreign tourists. But we also understand that private museums calculate differently. After all, it’s supposed to make a profit and the employees here certainly get higher salaries than public cultural institutions.
Our tips in the area
The 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 parties. There is also a lack of pubs or bars.
We have created our own overviews for all the recommendations in bold.
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.
