It’s Sunday, and yep, it’s gray. So, we checked out a new museum that I just heard about recently: the Dollhouse Museum.
Located (somewhat ironically) in the gigantic Palace of Culture of Science that looms over downtown Warsaw, the Museum Domków dla Lalek is actually a museum of miniatures, mostly dioramas of houses and shops. The displays come from all over Europe and show home life in various countries and at various times, including the Communist era.
The museum is small, but very nice. We spent about 45 minutes there. The displays are low down so that kids can see them, but otherwise, it is not really designed for kids. It’s meant to show the workmanship that goes into incredibly detailed dioramas and dollhouses. (My husband liked it too.)
Afterwards we walked over to the spiffy new Hala Koszyki for felafel sandwiches. Really happy this food hall has opened just in time for winter! It’s a new concept for Warsaw, resembling the Mercado San Miguel food hall in Madrid. Very good food and a bright, cheerful atmosphere. I am looking forward to seeing how they deck it out for Christmas.
So, another museum for the Gray Sundays collection. Just four or five more months of gray Warsaw Sundays to go…
