Museum of Evolution

Warsaw's Museum of Evolution is a joint effort of the Institute of Paleobiology and the Polish Academy of Sciences with the objective of providing 'accessible outreach and education aimed at broadening popular knowledge on the evolution of life on Earth'.

The rather dated permanent exhibit goes through the entire evolutionary timeline of life on Earth, with the lion's share lingering on the palaeontological collection, specifically the reconstruction of numerous dinosaur skeletons from the Polish-Mongolian expeditions to the Gobi Desert led by Zofia Kielan-Jaworowska in the 1960s and 1970s.

Although rather academic, this is still a good option for kids dazzled by dinosaurs; the charmingly old school exhibits are in Polish only, but there is an English-language guidebook that explains the exhibits. This museum is not currently accessible to people with disabilities. 

Average visiting time: 1hr.
