The “Charm of the PRL” Museum allows younger generations to get to know the past of their parents, while the older ones will be able to remember the brighter and darker sides of the People’s Republic of Poland (PRL). Welcome to our private space filled with souvenirs and symbols of the bygone era.

You can see the exhibition individually or with a guide. It is also a part of our tour around Warsaw in classic Nysa vans.

We also organize museum lessons and the Museum space may provide for a perfect location of an original photo session or thematic meeting.
