Charm of the PRL
Charm of the PRL
The “Charm of the PRL” (Polish: Czar PRL) is one of a kind museum where visitors can experience the atmosphere of Polish socialism and taste a bit how it was to live in the People’s Republic of Poland (PRL) during the communism. The museum is filled with souvenirs and symbols of the bygone era. You will find there: a cabinet of a party dignitary; propaganda posters; a typical family apartment filled with authentic furniture and objects used in a socialist household; a waiting room; a shop with empty hooks; rationing coupons for meat; shop vouchers; exchange books; and the only one in Poland – stationary soda dispenser. Big part of the exhibition refers to the 1980s with the Solidarity corner filled with newspapers, leaflets, and censored books. On TV, you can watch General Jaruzelski giving his famous speech introducing the Martial Law in Poland.
For children, there is a play corner where they can play with old toys from the communism time.
Guides are available but you need to make a reservation beforehand. They speak English and other languages.
You can enter the museum from Głucha Street or from Kamionkowska Street.
Children up to 3 y.o. enter the museum for free.
