Museum of Technology

A vast collection dedicated to the history of everything technological inside the equally enormous Palace of Culture & Science, this museum is only missing a map. Truly huge, and clearly laid out by somebody with a sadistic sense of humour, the scores of rooms are scattered willy nilly and organised with what appears to be a contemptuous disregard for reason and logic. Highlights include a cavalcade of impossible-looking motorbikes and aeroplanes, a room packed with 19th century musical boxes, historical cars like a 1936 Lux-Sport limousine chassis and a small exhibition celebrating space exploration that could do with some serious updating. Decorated with lace curtains and staffed by an army of sinister-looking old ladies, this museum guarantees that you won’t learn a thing no matter how hard you try, but it’s a strangely rewarding experience that really has to be seen to be believed.

So this place still does exist! For some reason I enjoyed it more than the IYP journalist did. I think I liked it so much because it reminded me of communist Poland what with all the comically backward technology on display. I don't remember the sinister-looking old ladies but they were so much a part of communist Poland that I don't notice the "pani's" in any circumstances.
