Most people have never experienced a place such as this. It has a picture viewer of the way Warsaw looked many decades ago. The machine who's name I forget is the way people from about 90 years ago viewed pictures in a public setting.

This is like instagram 100 years ago. Step back in time before catching your train. Just opposite the central station.

A small unique museum. We saw cool 3D pictures of India. Today, Thursday, was free entry. You sit down and watch the pictures, about 15-20 minutes.

This is an old machine working like it was in the 20's. We just can imagine the wonder then when people watch this kind of 3D photos. Not to miss when visiting warsaw.
