Wroclaw

Wrocław Contemporary Museum

This old air raid shelter just west of the Old Town has been resurrected as a place for contemporary art in Wrocław. The round and concrete above-ground bunker has been cleverly adapted with an elevator at its centre which whizzes you up to the fantastic 6th floor cafe, which features a terrace and great views, and may just be the highlight of visiting here. As for the art, the permanent exhibit focuses on contemporary art from the 20th century with a strong Wrocław presence, there's a floor for kids called the 'Self-service Museum,' which features changing magnetic collages, plus numerous temporary exhibitions. Outside the museum itself are two striking pieces: local artist Stanisław Dróżdż's 'Hour-glass' on the facade of the building, and the amazing and enormous 'Train to Heaven' sculpture of a vertical locomotive nearby will surely make you get your camera out.

To get there, hop on trams 3, 10, 20, 23, or 33 (quite a bit of choice there) at the 'Rynek' stop, getting off 3 stops later at 'Pl. Strzegomski.'
