“The Things of Warsaw” have arrived!
The book accompanying our core exhibition is now here. As all featured objects of each of the rooms described in it, the publication is a thing of beauty itself. A perfect reference work both before and after the visit, it can be purchased at the entrance to the museum for PLN 49.
